Special Aadhaar Enrolment Drive for Students
The main motive behind the formation of Unique Identification of India (UIDAI) was to enroll every resident of India under Aadhaar Enrolment Centre for their identification purposes. Now UIDAI is planning to carry out a special drive in India for enrolling the school children across the country. The special enrolment drive will favor the students who are eligible for any scholarship scheme. This drive is being administered by the District Collectors in all the schools of their concerned districts.
Process of Enrolment for Students
- At first, the headmasters of all schools would be obliged to take their students to the adjacent Aadhaar Enrolment Centre to get them enrolled for Aadhaar.
- Then the students would have to provide their details in order to get enrolled for Aadhaar.
- If a school has large number of students who must be enrolled, then enrolment camps would be organized in the school for enrolling students for Aadhaar.
Benefits for Students
- The students would be able to get enrolled for Aadhaar at an ealier age which is a very good thing.
- Aadhar based identification would mean that the students would also be able to easily apply for scholarships in a hassle-free manner.
- The students would also be able to receive money into their bank accounts through Aadhaar based DBT.
- The government addressed the campaign as a campaign to provide scholarship to genuine and deserving beneficiaries.
- The government also made sure that the students who are entitled for any type of scholarship would be given more priority for Aadhaar enrollment by 15 August, 2016.
- The government also made sure that the District Collectors of respective districts and the Headmasters of all schools are informed properly about the drive.
Actions taken for Special Aadhaar Enrollment Drive
- Aadhaar Enrollment Drive is being considered as a campaign by The School Education Departments in States and Local Aadhaar Enrolment Agencies.
- The District Collectors are also working hard to supervise the campaign and the teachers of every school are also helping.
- Also UIDAI has created a special cell in the State Education Departments and in each district so that the problems of every school could be solved through the help of the special cell. This cell would also be helpful for each and every district.
- Also a weekly review of the project would be made so that the parents of the school students would also be able to take advantage of the review and enroll their children for Aadhaar.
Things to know for Students for Aadhaar Enrolment
- The mobile number and email address of the student or any family members of the student would be needed for communication process.
