Domicile certificate mandatory in Maharashtra

Domicile certificate is a key document that enables its holder to prove that he/she is a resident of the state, which has issued the certificate, either by birth or for a period in excess of 15 years in case of Maharashtra. The document enables the holder to avail of the domicile/resident quotas extended by the concerned state in education and jobs, among other things. The district collectors are the issuing authority for domicile certificates.

The latest notification, however, clarifies that a domicile certificate won’t be required in the case where a student has cleared Std XII as well as Std X from the state. However, “students, who are not residents of the state, won’t be eligible for the health science courses even if they have passed their Std XII from Maharashtra.”

On Friday, the state government released a notification specifying details of distribution of the MHT-CET application forms, besides the eligibility norms and allied matters.

The mandatory domicile provision for students, having done their SSC from outside Maharashtra, was introduced last year, primarily to curb the outside students from cornering a bigger share of professional seats at the expense of the students from Maharashtra.

For engineering and pharmacy courses though, the outside Maharashtra state (OMS) students will be permitted to appear for the MHT-CET to attain eligibility of admission to the first-year degree courses. However, the eligible OMS candidates for engineering courses will be considered for admission against the institute-level seats only at private unaided colleges. Similarly, OMS candidates for pharmacy courses will be considered for admission to the 15 per cent OMS quota through the round I and II of the centralised admission process, to be conducted by the state director of technical education, the notification states.

The move drew widespread protests from students, not meeting the domicile norm, and even prompted a PIL in the Nagpur bench of the Bombay high court, following which the department of higher and technical education agreed to relax the norm for engineering courses.

Medical degree course aspirants, who may have passed Std XII from Maharashtra but Std X from outside the state, will have to furnish a domicile certificate to be able to appear for the ‘MHT-CET 2011′, the combined entrance exam for health sciences, engineering and pharmacy courses, scheduled for May 12.

Similarly, students who clear their Std XII from outside Maharashtra, won’t be eligible for the health science courses irrespective of their domicile status as a citizen of the state, the notification states. The government has made exceptions to this clause in the form of the defence candidates; students from the Maharashtra-Karnataka Border Area; children of employees of the central, state and Union territories governments.

Meanwhile, the MHT-CET 2011 application forms will be distributed from March 23 to 31 through the respective high schools and junior colleges. The government has also assigned divisional authorities to enable the OMS candidates secure the application forms by submitting a demand draft of Rs 700 in favour of the ‘Competent Authority, MH-CET, Mumbai’ payable at Mumbai and drawn on any scheduled commercial bank.

 

Though the domicile rule had been introduced for the engineering courses last year, it has been introduced for the medical courses too this year. Now those who want to pursue health sciences courses but have not cleared their standard XII exam from the state will have to submit domicile certificate in order to become eligible for Maharashtra Health and Technology Common Entrance Examination (MHT-CET) from this year onwards.

As per the notification for MHT-CET, 2011 issued by Directorate of Medical Education and Research ( DMER), those not appearing for std XII exam from the state would be barred from taking admissions in the health science courses offered by government/university-run medical colleges. As per para no 4.5 of the notification “the candidate must have passed the qualifying (HSC/std XII) or equivalent examination from an institution situated in the State of Maharashtra, with English, physics, chemistry and biology (botany and zoology) as subjects, at the time of admission”.

    A Domicile/Residence Certificate is generally issued to prove that the person bearing the Certificate is a Domicile/Resident of the State/UT by which the Certificate is being issued. This Certificate is required as proof of residence to avail Domicile/Resident Quotas in educational institutions and in the Government Service, as also in case of jobs where local residents are preferred.

    The prescribed application forms are either available online or from the local authorities, i.e., the Sub-Divisional Magistrate/Tehsildar’s office/Revenue Department/District Collector’s Office, or any other authority as specified in the State/UT of your residence. You will be required to produce proof of continuous residence in the State/UT for a specified minimum period, or that of holding land in the State/UT, depending on the rules in the State/UT concerned. Documents for proving your identity, attestation of the form by officers with the necessary authority, school certificates and the Tehsil Enquiry Report may also be required.

    Women not originally belonging to a State/UT, but married to men who are permanent residents of the State/UT or who are eligible for the State’s/UT’s Domicile Certificate, are eligible to apply for Domicile Certificate.

    Note:
    Domicile Certificate can be made only in one State/UT. Obtaining Domicile Certificate from more than one State/UT is an offence

    A certificate proving birth & residence/residence of Maharashtra for the last 15 years (this time around, they’re saying 10 years, since 1993)

    YOU NEED
    * Electricity bill or receipt of property tax — one for each of the last 10
    years since 1993
    * School leaving certificate/interim LC
    * Ration card
    * Father’s birth certificate/school leaving certificate
    Needed to avail of freeship/reservation

    Which notification you are mentioning, the CET brochure i have down loaded, which clearly mention about Type-A category, where in you should complete SSC and HSC from Maharastra and you should be domicile of Maharastra. The documents required to submit are bonafide certificate from college and domicile certificate. This category of Type A is very clear of requirement of Maharastra Domoicile.

    Domicile Certificate is normally valid for 12 months and is subject to review by the Revenue authorities.

    In some States like Haryana, it is prepared for 5 years.
    Better enquire from local Executive Magistrate office.

    They may accept it as document check is linient in most of the cases.But as you have time you can apply for new one.

    The state government’s relaxation of the domicile certificate requirement for admissions to professional courses has been widely welcomed, but it has nevertheless left candidates lined up for management courses confused.

    The relaxation order came on Monday, well after the start of the admission process for management courses. So, students who having failed to procure domicile certificates filled their forms in the outside Maharashtra state (OMS) category are not sure of how their forms would now be sorted out.

    A parent said: “Several students were told to fill the forms as OMS candidates when they could not procure domicile certificates. Monday’s directive does not say what happens to these students. My son scored 98% in the entrance test.

    But he was forced to fill the form as an outside student. How does the directorate of technical education (DTE) plan to sort out these forms?”

    The relaxation means that a student born in the state can secure admission by producing only a birth certificate. But a student who has lived in Maharashtra for more than 10 years but was not born here still needs to submit a domicile certificate.

    A student who has applied in the OMS category said: “I was not born in Maharashtra but have stayed here for more than 15 years. Students like me still have to procure domicile certificates . In any case, the state should have given the relaxation much earlier. Tehsildar offices (which issue the certificates) would have been able to process the applications faster had there been fewer of them.”

    S K Mahajan, director in charge, DTE, said: “Not more than 1,100 candidates were unable to submit the required documents. (Giving such candidates more time) we extended the dates of form submission by a week.”

    The relaxation came after the government realized that procuring domicile certificates was tedious and time-consuming for students. Also, it was becoming difficult for the revenue department (under which tehsildar offices come) to process the glut of applications . The new rule is that for a student who has neither a domicile nor a birth certificate, the school-leaving certificate should mention the place of birth as one within Maharashtra. Students failing to satisfy this norm would need to apply under the OMS category.

    Domicile certificate is a key document that enables its holder to prove that he/she is a resident of the state, which has issued the certificate, either by birth or for a period in excess of 15 years in case of Maharashtra. The document enables the holder to avail of the domicile/resident quotas extended by the concerned state in education and jobs, among other things. The district collectors are the issuing authority for domicile certificates.

    @Anup Rules for DTE change very fast so if they are asking for the domicile certificate ,you have to get it.Your son is eligible for it you can get it easily.

    @Sumana For domicile one has to provide proofs that he is living in state for last .It could be property tax proofs ,electricity bills etc etc.

    Dear Sir,
    I am a maharashtrian, did my XII fm Pune then joined Indian Armed forces. I had a domicile certificate of Maharashtra issued in 1986 when I completed my XII. I also own immovable property Ancestral as well as self earned in Maharashtra.

    Since I am from Armed forces I am in transferable job and has been moving in and out of Maharashtra.

    My daughter has completed her X from CBSE school in Mumbai.

    My present continuous stay in Maharashtra is for three years.

    IS my daughter eligible for a Domicile Certificate from Maharashtra.

    i am tamilian working in armed forces but domicile of maharastra as i have the necessary certificate. My daughter has done her 10th from Pune in 2013 and also has domicile certificate of maharastra. But i have been transferred to delhi recently and she will be forced to finish her 12 th from delhi in 2015. Is the domicile certificates valid for her to apply for medical colleges in maharastra or my domicile status and being in active defence service make her eligible to apply for medical colleges in maharastra
