The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Tuesday has given clarification regarding the increase in the examination fee of the 10th and 12th board. There are many reasons for this. Board Secretary Anurag Tripathi said that this decision has been taken due to increasing expenses of CBSE. Fees were not raised in the last five years. He said that this year the board had appointed five thousand new supervisors and five thousand deputy center superintendents up to 100 percent in about five thousand examination centers to prevent incidents of duplication and paper leaks in the examination of both classes. The number of evaluators was also increased by 40 percent so that we can announce the results soon.
The number of evaluators was increased from one lakh 25 thousand to 2 lakh 50 thousand. They and other stakeholders were also given the training to check the answer sheets. The Delhi High Court also ordered the results to be declared soon. The expenses of such things as paper expenses, printing, and transportation of confidential documents and the place to store them all increased. To prevent the occurrence of copying and paper leaks, many software was designed, with the help of new technology. Due to all these expenses, the examination fee had to be increased. Anurag Tripathi said that the examination fees of both the classes have been doubled. It is misinformation that the board has increased the examination fee by leaps and bounds.
