Since its implementation, GST has been a continuous controversial affair. With JEE examination too, the existing examination fees was raised by around Rs 500 per student (added GST along with a fee hike).

Students complained about this substantial hike in the fees and hence the GST council decided to withdraw it on examination charges.
