The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has partnered with the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to set up Aadhaar enrolment centres and has asked its affiliated schools to encourage students to enroll.
The CBSE issued a circular to its schools on Thursday saying that the schools volunteering and desirous to extend their facilities for Aadhaar enrolment centres shall have to sign separate Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CBSE or UIDAI, as the case maybe.
Schools shall set up enrolment centres to facilitate their bona fide students, teachers, staff and their family members to enrol for Aadhar and make any updates or corrections, it said in the circular.
It further added that equipments such as computer, printer, biometric devices and other such things will have to be procured by the school themselves and should be as per the UIDAI specifications.
Schools shall be empanelled by UIDAI and paid by CBSE for successful Aadhaar generation at Rs 30 per Aadhaar enrolment based on the data provided by each school to CBSE.
Schools have been told not to charge fee for the enrolment.
