The civil service aspirants can make the payment for the prelims and mains through debit card, credit card or via net banking. They can pay cash, but only at MP Online kiosks.
MPPSC secretary Renu Pant told HT that the commission stopped accepting fees through bank drafts a long time ago and starting this year, it has gone for a cashless mode to make whole process “hassle-free”.

Candidates can also fill application forms for the state forest service exam. They can make corrections in their online forms, if any, between December 16 and January 10 at a charge of Rs 50.
