CBSE's fee hike decision 'casteist', 'anti-poor', says Mayawati

New Delhi , Aug 13 : Calling the Central Board of Secondary Education's move to increase examination fee for board examinations anti-poor, BSP chief Mayawati on Tuesday said the decision should be reversed immediately.

"Recently, CBSE has increased the examination fee for 10th and 12th by 24 times, under which now SC-ST students will have to pay Rs 1,200 instead of Rs 50" she tweeted.

"Similarly, the fee of general category students has also been doubled. This is a very unfortunate, casteist and anti-poor decision. CBSE should take it back immediately. This is the demand of BSP," she said in another tweet.
