In an attempt to ease up the application procedure for students, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has included the Paytm mode of application fee payment for JEE Main 2017. Paytm mode of payment has not been used by CBSE prior to the year.
Students using this mode of payment will be charged an additional 1.50% of the exam form fee along with the service tax as applicable. CBSE has launched another new payment option i.e. SBI Buddy. Applicants can use this mode of payment where they will have to pay Rs.20 per transaction along with service tax as applicable.
Talking about the different modes of payment, CBSE officials said that students can pay JEE Main 2017 application fee either by e-challan that is auto-generated during the registration process, credit card/debit card or e-wallet i.e. SBI Buddy and Paytm. Also, students who are paying fees through e-challan will have to make the payment at either Canara, Syndicate, ICICI or HDFC Bank in cash.
CBSE has also made it clear that other modes of payment such as money order, IPO, demand draft, etc. will not be accepted. Also, if payment for the application is done it will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Students can also make use of the “Calculate Exam Fee” option by which they can calculate their exact fee that they have to pay for JEE Mains application 2017 according to their category and mode of paper. The application form for JEE Main 2017 has been released on December 1.
