The Important Announcement (31-07-2019)
The announcement to the date is in link with the lapse in the service of SSP (Self-service portal). The announcement is in context with the Direct Entry Students registered under intermediate course till 30th June 2019. The announcement states that the candidates looking forward to the commencement of their practical training by 1st August 2019 for appearing in May 2020 examination may face some problem in due course of their registration to the portal.
Chaos due to the lapse in service
The chaos due to the lapse in the service is that in case the candidates fail to commence their PT i.e., practical training by 1st August 2019 they will fail to complete 9-month practical training. And for the same, they won’t be eligible for the May 2020 examination.

The Self Service Portal is a newly launched platform. The Portal is not fully updated as it is still on its initial ground. The competent authority is considering the matter and the outcome of the same will be shared with the students through an announcement by the third week of August 2019.
