Bengaluru: The Department of Primary and Secondary Education has decided to make Aadhaar mandatory for all students in government, aided and private unaided schools, as well as Pre-university colleges across Karnataka.

With a move to streamline government incentives such as uniforms, textbooks, cycles, and scholarships, the State government aims to provide Aadhaar cards for every student by the end of academic year 2016-17. The department hopes to bring in more accountability into the education system with the linking of the Aadhaar.

Ajay Seth, Principal Secretary, Department of Primary and Secondary Education, said around 65 lakh of the total one crore students in Karnataka are already enrolled under Aadhaar. “For the remaining students, we plan to send enrolment teams to schools, colleges and hostels in rural areas,” he said.
