New Delhi, August 13A deficit of over Rs 200 crore in conducting board examination for class X and XII forced the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to hike fees, according to officials.
Early board results, measures to make examination leak proof and error-free evaluation have imposed a financial burden on the CBSE, they said.
The CBSE last week notified an increase in the examination fees for class X and XII, registration fees for class IX and XI migration fees.
The CBSE spends around Rs 500 crore annually to conduct examinations for class X and XII, according to him.
There has been an increase in expenses due to the introduction of technological interventions in conducting examinations as well as evaluation, he said.
