However the notification dated September 13, 2019, by the board says, “Candidates willing to appear for the above examinations have to approach any AP Online Centre or Polytechnic where they are studying, with recent passport size photo for registration and obtain hall ticket. For this service, AP Online centre/Polytechnic operator will collect Rs.15/- from the candidate per hall ticket for Normal / Late fee and Rs.25/- for Tatkal.”
It also says, “The student can also generate the hall ticket directly by making payment through payment gateway (i.e. Debit Card/Credit Card/Net Banking). The candidates can make the fee payment by any of the above methods but the hall ticket will not be generated until the candidate put up the required attendance to appear for the examination. The hall tickets for the candidates will be generated only after verification of attendance. The candidate has to obtain the signature on the hall ticket from the concerned Head of Section/Principal before appearing for the examination. (Note: Before remitting the fee, the candidate shall ensure his eligibility status, since fee once paid is not refundable.)”
