However, the letter also states that for the payment of difference of increased fees per candidate the board will take up the reimbursement with state govt once number of candidates is finalised.
Central Board of Secondary Education, Secretary, Anurag Tripathi told ANI, "We have issued a circular to the Delhi Government today that SC/ST students in Delhi will have to pay Rs 50 only for Class X and Class XII Board examinations."
For the remaining amount, CBSE will take up reimbursement of increased fees directly with Delhi state govt after finalising list of candidates. This has been informed to the Delhi government.
While the board has decided to restore the earlier fee structure for ST/SC students, increased fee will only be applicable to general category.
A statement earlier issued by the board stated that fee hike is required for self sustenance and to maintain CV quality in examination, evaluation and overcome the financial deficit.
