The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made it mandatory for students to attach their Aadhaar Number for registration of Class 9 and 11.
A circular released by the board recently in this regard has listed detailed rules for the registration of students in class 9 and class 11 of CBSE affiliated schools.
“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.
Explaining about making the Aadhaar number compulsory for registration, the CBSE revealed “Wherever Aadhar number is not available; Aadhar enrolment number can be provided. Residents of Indian states where Aadhar enrolment is not being done may provide Bank details in lieu of Aadhar.”
The foreign nationals registering for class 9 and 11 of CBSE will require to their passport number or Social Security Number/ID Number issued by the foreign country.
It should be noted that those registered in class 9 shall have to appear for mandatory board exam next year.
