Madhya Pradesh PSC online exam fees doubled from Rs to 1200 to Rs 2500 for general category

Bhopal, November 14, 2019 (Muslim Saleem): MP Public Service Commission (MP PSC) has added to the difficulty of unemployed youth of the state. It is because of this that the PSC has doubled the fees for all online examinations. This has not only disturbed the candidates of unreserved category, but also reserved class candidates have been affected.
In PSC, male number 946 became deputy collector, but female candidate who brought number 953 was not elected to this post
The fee for the unreserved category candidates has been increased from Rs 1200 to Rs 2500 directly. Similarly, the fees of reserved category candidates have been increased from Rs 600 to Rs 1250. The PSC has also implemented this increased fee. According to the advertisement recently released for Assistant Director Farmers Welfare and Agricultural Development (Area and Extension), increased fees are being charged from the candidates. This recruitment is to be done for 37 posts of Assistant Director. Applications for this will be filled by 7 December.
It is also not that the PSC is constantly providing opportunities for youth employment. This year the advertisement was released under direct recruitment to the Department of Agriculture and earlier the advertisement for the post of backlog for the Health Department. Now the candidates feel cheated. Fees would have been increased by 10 to 15 percent once it could be borne, but increasing the fees by more than double has put the youth in trouble.
Understand this … If 20 thousand candidates sit in an online examination, then there will be an income of Rs 3 crore.
More than 20 thousand candidates appeared in the last set examination conducted by PSC. If the same number of candidates will appear in the next online examination and on an average, fees of Rs 1500 will be charged from them, then only one examination will earn Rs 3 crore.
Candidates’ question – what is the criterion to increase fees
The PSC has directly increased the fees. Candidates are not getting information about how the fees were increased and what its criterion was kept. This agency, which claims a transparent system, is yet to show transparency in terms of fees. After increasing the fees, no information was released on its website.
On the advice of PSC Secretary, Bhaskar checked the fees of other agencies, the difference before you
PEB … All examinations are now conducted online by the Professional Examination Board. For the pre-conducted recruitment examinations, fees of Rs 250 were taken from the reserved class and Rs 500 from the unreserved class. At the same time, fees of 250 to 300 rupees were taken from the reserved category and 400 to 600 rupees from the unreserved class for the entrance examinations.
NTA … For the UGC National Eligibility Test, the National Test Agency charges a fee of Rs 800 from the general category candidate, Rs 400 from the OBC and Rs 200 from others including SC, ST. The same agency also conducts the examination. There is a minimum fee of Rs 700 to 1600 rupees from all the candidates.
IIT Delhi … Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) -2020 is being organized this time by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. It had a fee of Rs 700 for women candidates, Rs 750 for SC, ST, Divyang and Rs 1000 for other candidates. The exam is conducted through online medium in 3 hours time.
MCU … Makhanlal Chaturvedi National Journalism University used to conduct computer diploma course ‘DCA’ examination online. For the examination of 3 subjects, only Rs 750 was charged.
Mashimam … The Board of Secondary Education charges Rs 900 for the 10th and 12th board exams.
The increased fees will apply to all online exams. Fees have been increased after 8 to 10 years. The online exam costs a lot of money and the PSC does not charge this fee. The entire fee goes to the government account. The fees of other agencies should also be looked into. How much is the fee of board exam, it should also be seen.
