Due to the severe cash crunch being faced owing to the shortage of lower denomination notes following the demonetisation, the Maharashtra state education minister Vinod Tawde announced that the deadline for payment of Secondary School Certificate (SSC), Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exam fees has been extended.
In an official press statement, Tawde said that there are 22 lakh candidates for SSC, HSC and they are facing problem in paying fees while filling exam forms.
Stating that he had received several complaints from students, their parents, teachers and even schools managements regarding this situation, he said that it has been decided to allow students to fill forms now and pay fees later.
“No student will have to miss board exams because they did not have change to pay towards exam fees. Students will get time till February to pay the fees,” said Tawde.
Approximately 17 lakh students are set to appear for SSC exams while 14 lakh candidates will appear for HSC exams. Of these, most students of HSC have already filled exam forms and paid fees as the due date is coming to an end.
