The application fee for general/ OBC category candidates is Rs. 1000, candidates belonging to other categories should pay Rs. 500.
The aptitude test will be conducted in both Hindi and English at different centres nationwide. Admit cards for the aptitude test will be available in the second week of October.
KVPY Fellows who opt out of the basic science (B.Sc./ B.S./ B.Stat./ B.Math./ Int. M.Sc./ M.S.) stream at any stage will forfeit the Fellowship and Contingency Grant forthwith.
