If the candidate desires to do so, he/she can proceed by paying the additional amount for second Paper as indicated.


If a candidate has difficulty in making the payment (due to internet connection or power failure, for example) or is not sure whether payment has been processed or not, then he/she should login to JAM 2022 application portal after about an hour and check the status of the payment. If the status is "Fee Pending/Not Paid" then a fresh online payment through JAM 2022 fee payment portal may be initiated. If it is not done, the application will be rejected due to non-payment of the application fee in time. In case, the fee amount has been debited from your bank account, but JAM 2022 application portal does not acknowledge any fee payment, then the money will be credited back to your account within seven working days.
