Aadhaar Compulsory For Admissions in CBSE Affiliated Schools

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made a new move which makes the Aadhaar card mandatory for the new admissions from the next academic year 2018-19. The board has earlier directed the institutions to start the enrollment using Aadhaar, for all the students at the beginning of the current academic year.

The board has now gone ahead and made the same compulsory and as per the notification of the board, all the schools that are affiliated to the board will have to register themselves before the online submissions begin.

Aadhaar Compulsory For Admissions in CBSE Schools


"This is not necessary. Students should be given unique number instead of Aadhaar and link all the details of it. Like, how Karnataka State government has done to their board, that method should be used. It keeps academics out of other linking information like bank or phone details." said a source.

The states where the Aadhaar number has not been made mandatory the schools will have to use the bank details of the students.

No Annual Income or Tax Certificates from Parents

CBSE stated that none of the institutions should require the students to provide the annual income of their parents or the tax certificates, or any other form document which shows the income of the parents. The decision of providing the declaration is now in the hands of the parents.

Age Bracket for Registrations

The board hasn't mentioned the age bracket yet. The notification read, ""CBSE has not prescribed any minimum age for registration in class IX/XI. As per Rule 6.1(a), (iii) of the Examination Bye-Laws school may ensure that the student satisfies the requirement of age limit (minimum and maximum) as determined by the State/ U.T. Government and applicable to the place where the school is located while seeking admission in a class/"

CBSE has directed the institutions to make sure that the combination of the subjects should be correct before the online submission is conducted. The notification said, "In accordance with the scheme of studies, the Board has prescribed a list of valid/Invalid combination of subjects. School should check the combination of subjects before filling in the subjects. Example: In class XI subject Informatics Practice and Computer Science cannot be taken together."
