Aadhaar enrolment drive for students eligible for scholarships

The preference to scholarship students is explained by the fact that the government wants to ensure that all students applying for scholarships are able to receive the money in their bank accounts


The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is carrying out a special Aadhaar enrolment drive for school children across the country, giving preference to students eligible for a scholarship.

“All the students entitled for any type of scholarships will be offered priority Aadhaar enrolment by 15 August,” said Ajay Bhushan Pandey, CEO, UIDAI.

The preference to scholarship students is explained by the fact that the government wants to ensure that all students applying for scholarships are able to receive the money in their bank accounts.
The drive is being coordinated and supervised by the district collectors. The headmasters of schools have been made accountable to take the students to nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centres and get them enrolled for Aadhaar.
