Maha State Board 2021 will refund the examination fee of class 10 and 12 board students
Maharashtra State Board for Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) issued a notification late on Thursday night saying that it will refund the examination fee collected from class 10 and 12 students for the purpose of board exams in February-March 2021.
The move comes nearly three months after the Bombay High Court’s directive to do so and activists questioned why the state board did not come back 150 crores were charged from around 34 lakh SSC and HSC students in a year when board exams in states and education boards were canceled due to COVID-19.
The notification made public by MSBSHSE on Thursday said, “Both SSC and HSC examinations were canceled this year due to increase in COVID-19 cases. Following the Bombay HC order, the state board has issued the examination to the concerned students.” We have decided to refund the fee amount.” , It further mentions that in order to do so, students will have to login to mahagsscboard.in and fill individual students’ information on the link given on the website from November 12.
In July this year, a retired school principal from Sangli district had filed a petition in the Bombay HC questioning the state board’s decision not to refund examination fees to students. The petitioner had highlighted how like every year MSBSHSE alleged 415 in each of about 17 lakh SSC students and 520 each out of around 16 lakh HSC students in the 2020-21 academic year. roughly it is accounted for 150 crore, which the petition highlighted, should be refunded to the concerned students as no examination was held.
“Examination fee is charged to cover fees for paper setters, invigilators, paper evaluation, transportation of question and answer sheets, printing cost etc. Any of these activities will result in initial delay in 2021 and final completion of examination. So there is no need for the state board to sit on such a huge amount,” said a teacher from the city, which is part of a teaching and non-teaching staff union in Mumbai. Schools, parents, students and activists have been demanding refund of examination fees from May this year, but the final notification on the issue was issued by the state board on November 11.
