‘Aadhaar not must for school admission’

Aadhaar not must for school admission

Government agency UIDAI Wednesday asked schools not to refuse admission to students for lack of Aadhaar and said such denials are “invalid” and “not permitted under the law”. Taking a stern view of cases where few schools had denied admission to children in absence of Aadhaar, the UIDAI said “it must be ensured that no children are deprived/denied of their due benefits or rights for want of Aadhaar”. The move is expected to offer relief to parents and students who are left in a lurch when schools insist on Aadhaar. For children who are not yet assigned an Aadhaar number or those whose biometrics are not updated, the UIDAI said that under Aadhaar rules it will be the “responsibility” of schools to arrange for enrolments and biometric update facility.
