On the instruction of the Directorate of Education, the admission process has been expedited for the academic session 2021-22. At the same time, the schools are also in full swing.

However, this time the Directorate has clarified that Aadhaar card will not be mandatory for admission of the child.

the condition of children taking Aadhar card for admission to nursery. After this, prior to the admission process completed for the academic 2019-20, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) directed the schools not to provide the pre-condition of providing 12-digit biometric number (Aadhaar) before admission. In this regard, UIDAI warned the schools that doing so would be against the recent order of the court. According to UIDAI, the demand for Aadhaar is not good. This is not in accordance with the provisions of the law. Providing Aadhaar for admission to schools and other facilities for children cannot be made mandatory.
