This information was provided by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge)  Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions,  Dr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 27th June 2019.

He said that there is no proposal under consideration of the Government to abolish application fee for all candidates appearing for Government job recruitment examinations.



However, candidates belonging to Schedule Caste (SC)/Schedule Tribe (ST), Persons With Disabilities (PWD), Ex-Servicemen and Women candidates are already exempted from payment of the fee for Government recruitment examinations. In some cases, the examination fee is fully exempted while in most of that case fee charged 50% of the fee charged from general category candidates.

Government Job Recruitment Examination fee has increased many folds in recent years and it would have been better if the government abolish the fee completely for all types of candidates.  This will benefit a large section of society. This would be a real social cause.

The government, on one hand, provide subsidies and loan waiver kind of freebies and other benefits to some section of the society and here in the case of unemployed job seekers, government fetches a fee for its own requirement of manpower and government recruitment examinations.



An unemployed job seeker generally applies to many government job vacancies and find it extremely hard to pay for all of the government recruitment examinations besides the hassle of paying by various means. The abolition of government job recruitment examination fees will be a good step.

If the government really wants to get a fee for recruitment examinations, it can charge from selected candidates from their pay for several months, after they join.
