New Delhi: SC/ST students in the national capital will continue paying Rs 50 as CBSE board exam fee and rest of the revised amount will be paid by the Delhi government, the Central Board of Secondary Education announced on Tuesday. The decision for giving the relief to the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe students here was taken following the directions of the HRD Ministry, CSBE secretary Anurag Tripathi said.

The CBSE recently announced hike in board exam fess across categories.

“Keeping in view facilitation for registration of SC/ ST candidates of Delhi govt schools for board examinations, the board has decided to restore the earlier practice of charging only Rs 50 from schools for SC and ST candidates for 10th and 12th board examinations,” read the board circular.

Relief to SC/ST Students, while General students have to pay hike amount :

Tripathi said on Tuesday that the Board has decided to restore the practice of charging only Rs. 50 from schools for SC and ST candidates for 10th and 12th Board examinations.

The General student have to pay Rs 1500 for 5 subjects.

The students enrolled in CBSE schools abroad will have to pay Rs 10,000 for five subjects for both Class 10 and 12. Earlier it was Rs 5000. For them, the fees for an additional subject in Class 12 has been fixed at Rs 2,000, as against Rs 1,000 earlier.

This back step of CBSE is the result of strong statement made by the Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia , that  the Delhi government would consider setting up its own education board “if the CBSE keeps making arbitrary decisions”.
