The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched an Integrated Payment System (IPS) to release the payment of external examiners involved in the conduct of practicals of Term II examinations. 

As per the CBSE, the benefit of IPS is that payment is made directly into the account of the beneficiary by the board. The CBSE has already released the payment of the Term-I examination using the Integrated Payment System (IPS). 

In Integrated Payment System (IPS), automatic payment is released once data has been submitted correctly and freezed. 

“As communicated earlier, the Board is launching IPS for payment of External Examiner involved in the conduct of practicals of Term -II Examinations. All the concerned are requested to kindly submit the data in the IPS,” the board said.

The board has requested the examiners to read the user manual of IPS and note the fields required to be filled in. “Based on the same, collect the data and check the same to ensure that data filled in is correct. Kindly ensure IFSC Code is as per new merger of the Banks,” the board said. 

Once data is filled in, CBSE will start releasing the payment in an automotive mode. 

After the IPS for External Practical Examiners, the CBSE will also start payment for the conduct of Term —II Examination and thereafter for evaluation also. 

Seeking suggestions to improve the system, the CBSE controller of examinations Sanyam Bharadwaj said, “I am sure with this initiative of the Board, all the future payments would be released using Integrated Payment System (IPS) immediately once the concerned activity is over.”
