CBSE students must submit Aadhaar Number for registration


Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made Aadhaar Number must for board exam registration for Class 9 to 12.

CBSE schools are recording the Aadhaar Numbers of students during online registration for classes IX to XII, in compliance with a circular issued by CBSE making Aadhaar Number registration mandatory for CBSE affiliated schools.  The Board in a circular released on 26th Sept’17 mentioned detailed rules for class 9 and class 11 registrations of CBSE affiliated schools and those for classes X and XII almost a month later. 'All CBSE affiliated schools should register themselves before proceeding for online submission. They can use the password and 'Affiliation Number' as user ID already available with them. Newly affiliated schools should contact the concerned Regional Office of the CBSE for obtaining password,' reads the circular.

The Aadhaar Number is a12-digit number issued to Indian residents by the Unique Identification Authority of India  

So, CBSE has made Aadhaar number compulsory for registration but those students who have not received their Aadhaar Numbers yet need not worry since CBSE has left some alternative for such students as detailed below:

The CBSE affiliated schools have been asking students to provide photo-copies of their Aadhaar Cards for filling in details during online registration. According to the CBSE circular, “The Aadhaar Number field is mandatory. Wherever Aadhaar Number field is not available; Aadhaar enrolment number can be provided. Residents of Indian states where Aadhaar enrolment is not being done may provide nationalised bank details or any govt. proof in lieu of Aadhaar.”

For foreign nationals, passport number must be provided; else Social Security Number/ID Number issued by that Foreign Country may be provided.

Here CBSE class 9 students should note that the board has made it mandatory for them to sit in the board exam from next year. CBSE has also remodeled assessment system for class 10 examination in which 80 Marks will be of theory examination and 20 marks internal assessment. There is mandatory minimum passing 33 per cent for theory, internal assessment separately. Also read CBSE News: CBSE bringing change in result format
