PMC to Pay Exam Fees for Class X and XII students

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to pay Class X and Class XII’s examination fees. The civic school students appear for their board examinations.

Why is PCMC paying the examination fees of Class X and XII?

Hemant Rasane, the standing committee chairperson, shared, “The students in civic schools are from low-income families. All of them are given free education, but those appearing for Class X and XII examinations have to pay the examination board fees. However, this year, the PMC has decided to pay their examination fees.”

Municipal commissioner Shekhar Gaikwad has made Rs35 lakh provision for the exam fees.

As per the preliminary figures available, a total of 3,000 students appear for Class 10 SSC board exams from PMC-run schools.

In 43 PMC-run schools, there are 3,606 students in Class X, and 200 studying technical subjects. The examination fees for regular students is Rs 425 while that for technical subject students is Rs 525. Thus, a total of Rs 16.01 lakh will be paid as the fees.

Similarly, there are 405 Class XII students in five civic-run junior colleges appearing for the board examinations. The payment of Rs 1.81 lakh would be made for their board exams.

Reopening of Schools

Earlier, The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has allowed schools to reopen for Std IX to XII in Pune from January 4, 2021. The civic body has also released the standard operating procedure (SOP) that schools need to follow. To prevent the spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID19).

As per the previous order issued by the PMC Commissioner Vikram Kumar, the schools and hostels and Ashram Shala were allowed to reopen. The school and hostel administration will have to follow the Maharashtra government’s school education and sports department’s guidelines.
