With Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) making it mandatory for the students to get their Aadhaar card for appearing in high school and intermediate board examinations 2018, the chaos for getting Aadhaar among the students who do not have an Aadhaar card has increased. Now, UP Board says that it will set up camps and motivate students to get Aadhaar registration done.
According to reports, a total of 67,29,540 students have registered for the UP Board’s high school and intermediate examinations next year. According to an estimate, around 15% (nearly 10 lakh) students do not have Aadhaar.
“I believe nearly 15% of the total students registered in Lucknow district do not have Aadhaar. We will set up camps and motivate students and parents to get Aadhaar registration done in the next couple of months. Two-and-a-half months are remaining for examination which is sufficient to complete the task,” said DIoS, Lucknow, Mukesh Kumar Tripathi told reporters.
Examinations are scheduled in February. A total of 67,29,540 students have registered for the UP Board’s high school and intermediate examinations next year. The announcement has left students, parents and district-level education department officials in a tizzy. In Lucknow alone, more than 1.08 lakh candidates have been registered for the Board examination.
“The registration process was completed without the Aadhaar and they have been asked to get their cards before the examinations,” an official added.
