The Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) will conduct the classes 10 and 12 board exams 2023 between March 1 to 31. However, recently, around 11 private and government schools have not filled the registration forms of the students. Shrikant Banoth, secretary of MP board has assured that these children will not be stopped from taking the exam.
Following a meeting, he said strict action will be taken against the school operators and principals for negligence. At present, out of the 11 schools, some of them have submitted the examination forms and fees of the children. However, there are still more than 582 children whose examination fees are yet to be deposited.
The MP board had fixed the classes 10 and 12 exam fees at Rs 900. The last date to submit the fees was September 30. A few more days was given to submit the fees with a late fee of Rs 100, and till November 20, with a late fee of Rs 2000.
Many government and private schools, however, were unable to collect the fees of the children. Out of this, 11 schools were from Bhopal only.
