Application Fees: 
Examination fees were levied to discourage non-serious candidates who applying and do not appear for the exam.
This would save the Railways substantial amount of resources spent on setting up infrastructure to enable candidates to appear for exams.
Examination fees for recruitment were fixed at Rs. 500/- for non-exempted candidates.
It is now decided that Rs. 400/- will be refunded to those candidates who appear for the exam. To enable refund of this amount, candidates will be required to submit details of their bank accounts online.
This facility will be executed shortly. Exempted categories like SC / ST / Divyang / Ex-servicemen / Women / Minorities / Economically Backward Classes will be charged Rs. 250/-. The whole of this amount will be refunded to those candidates from these categories who appear for the exam.
These fees will ensure only serious candidates appear.
