No burden on Delhi SC/ST students of board exam fee hike: CBSE

Wednesday, 14 August 2019 | PTI | New Delhi

SC/ST students of Delhi Government schools  will continue paying Rs 50 as CBSE board exam fee and the rest of  the revised amount, which comes to Rs 1,150, will be paid to the  board by the city Government, the Central Board of Secondary Education  said on Tuesday.

The decision for giving the relief to the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled  Tribe students here was taken following a direction of the HRD Ministry, CBSE secretary Anurag Tripathi said.

"On directions of the HRD Ministry, the board has decided to restore the practice of charging only Rs 50 from schools for SC and ST candidates  of Delhi Government schools for 10th and 12th Board examinations.

For the payment of difference of increased fees per candidate, the  board will take up the reimbursement with the State Government once  number of candidates is finalised," Tripathi said. The CBSE last week notified an increase in the examination fees for Classes 10 and 12, registration fees for Classes 9 and 11 and migration fees.

The fees for general category students for Classes 10 and 12 were doubled from Rs 750 to Rs 1,500 for five subjects.

For the Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) students, who were paying Rs 375 earlier, the fee was raised to Rs 1,200. Under a special arrangement in the national capital, these students were only paying Rs 50, while the Delhi Government was paying the rest of the amount as subsidy.
