The order reads, "The CBSE has enhanced the examination fees for class 10 and 12 for the Examination 2020. In this regard, the heads of all government, government-aided schools, and Patrachar Vidyalaya are hereby directed not to collect the Examination fees from the students of class X and XII for payment to CBSE till further directions. However, the process of completion of CBSE's List of Candidates will continue, as usual."
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on 11 August said that Delhi government may reimburse the examination fee paid by SC/ST students of Class 10 and 12 studying in government schools directly to the students as the board will now take the full amount from the reserved category (SC/ST) students.
However, two days later on the direction of Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry, the CBSE has decided to restore the earlier practice of charging Rs 50 only from SC and ST candidates appearing for Class X and XII board examinations in Delhi government schools.
