Maharashtra Education Board: Maharashtra State Education Board has decided to refund the examination fees of class 10th and 12th students. The state education board has decided to repay 14-18 per cent of the fees charged for the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary School (HSC) examinations, which were cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Guidelines for schools

The Maharashtra Education Board has instructed schools to upload the details of the students who had registered for the SSC and HSC 2021 exams. The refund amount will be transferred to the bank account of each school. After this, it will be the responsibility of the school to refund the fees refunded to the students. Over 16 lakh class 10 and 14 lakh class 12 students had registered for the board exams.

Bombay HC had asked to consider the PIL.

The results were declared based on an internal assessment by the Maharashtra Education Board in July-August. Following a PIL seeking a refund of the examination fee by a retired principal of Miraj in Sangli district, the Bombay High Court had asked the board to consider the plea. The petitioner had said that the board had collected more than Rs 150 crore from the students, and not returning it after the examination cancellation would amount to profiteering.

How much refund will I get?

On Thursday, the state education board decided to refund the money collected partially. Class 10 students who paid Rs 415 for the SSC exam will be refunded Rs 59 or 14%. Class 12 students who had paid Rs 520 will get Rs 94 (18%). Students appearing in the supplementary examination in October will not be entitled to a refund. State board officials said that though the exam was cancelled, the expenditure was incurred for preparing for the upcoming exams.
