Abstract  Under the assumption that the approximating function $\psi$ is monotonic, the classical KhintchineGroshev theorem provides an elegant probabilistic criterion for the Lebesgue measure of the set of $\psi$approximable matrices in $\mathbb{R}^{mn}$. The famous DuffinSchaeffer counterexample shows that the monotonicity assumption on $\psi$ is absolutely necessary when $m=n=1$. On the other hand, it is known that monotonicity is not necessary when $n > 2$ (Sprindzuk) or when $n=1$ and $m>1$ (Gallagher). Surprisingly, when $n=2$ the situation is unresolved. We deal with this remaining case and thereby remove all unnecessary conditions from the classical KhintchineGroshev theorem. This settles a multidimensional analogue of Catlin's Conjecture.
