Interest fee

Many schools and colleges are reluctant to collect exam fee reimbursement

Aurangabad, September 10:

Many secondary and higher secondary schools seem reluctant to collect reimbursement of examination fees in the jurisdiction of the Aurangabad division of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE).

It should be noted that the state government has decided not to hold an examination of SSC and HSC in 2021 due to the Covid outbreak.

Students in secondary and upper secondary schools were promoted to the next class based on internal grades and previous class performance.

The MSBSHSE should have given a concession on exam fees after reducing the hall ticket, memo and certificate fees. The Council had collected the full fees, but the examinations had not taken place.

A public interest litigation has been filed in the Bombay High Court for reimbursement of costs. The court ordered the Council of State in November 2021 to reimburse the costs. More than 3 lakh students appeared in both standards in 2021. The MSBSHSE has decided to pay Rs 59 and Rs 94 for each SSC and HSC student respectively as reimbursement.

Aurangabad Division has repeatedly notified colleges and schools to collect the fees. Despite this, many schools are not ready to collect fees. The Aurangabad Division of the State Council has given one more opportunity to secondary and upper secondary schools to collect fees from the Council by October 31st.
