OHU – Outside Home University – like pune student for mumbai colleges
OMS / AI – Non Maharastra Students / All India Seats – like delhi student applying for mumbai colleges

4. Why should I apply to Maharashtra based colleges
No, no one is forcing you to apply. Obviously if you score well in CAT you will get into IIMs but if CAT is screwed up than CET becomes good option. Consider the ROI of colleges – top 5 colleges in CET have fees of average 3.5 lacs and salary of more than 10 lacs. which makes them very attractive option for everyone. Delhi colleges have low ROI – average 15 lacs fees. (excluding FMS)

Cetking: Imagine there are 56 Bschools in delhi and one day they decide to come together and take only one common exam and gdpi.. (like engineering state level cap rounds) wont that be ideal and save loads of money in admission fees itself? So similar thing happened in maharashtra like engineering they have combined all 406 institutes with a total of 45,621 seats together and they wil accept MAH-MBA / MMS-CET 2014 for admission to their MBA/MMS courses in Maharashtra. A few of top Bschools are JBIMS, SIMSREE, Welingkar, KJ Somaiya, SIES, PuMBA and Dalmia.

But in Maharashtra all state institute will be allotted through the Centralized Admission Process (CAP). Candidate will have to contact the institute to confirm the admission after that. The candidates applying to institute pgdm seats should apply directly to the institute.
The Centralized Admission Process will consist of total four rounds, out of which first three rounds shall be based on computerized allotment and last round by counseling. Candidates are advised to keep the necessary documents ready at the time of Document verification stage at ARC as per the notified schedule.

7. I am outside maharashtra student, I appeared in CAT and XAT and now I am going to appear in CMAT. Do I have to appear in MAHCET also to seek admission in B schools like SIMSREE, Welingkar, KJ Somaiya, etc?
Cetking: If you have appeared in any of the All India management entrance test like CAT, XAT, CMAT, ATMA, you don’t need to appear again in MAHCET. But, it is mandatory to register for it to participate in MAHCET Centralized Admission Process (CAP).
