Allahabad : Buoyed by the good academic performance of re-enrolled female students across Uttar Pradesh, the state government will now use Aadhaar cards to track all girls who had dropped-out after class 8 in the past six years.
These students would then be admitted to government schools under the Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV)scheme.
Before their admission, the girls would be counselled and tutored by experts so that they can keep up with academic activities, even after a gap of a few years.
State project director, Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSS), GS Priyadarshi said, “There are 746 KGBVs in the state, where 74,000 girls can complete their studies.”
“It has been observed that most of the girls are usually forced to leave their studies midway by their family or relatives, so the re-enrollment drive will give them a chance to complete their studies.” he added.
The 14-digit Aadhaar number is used for registration of students of class 6, by the state basic education department.
