Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Government today wrote to all district Collectors to take steps to complete Aadhaar enrolment of all students by the end of November.
Since the Government of India has extended the deadline for enrolment of such population under Aadhaar to December 31, the state government instructed schools under Primary and Higher Secondary levels to identify and enrol the left out students in nearest Aadhaar camps.
As per a circular of the School and Mass Education Department, three to four Secondary schools in each block having internet connectivity will be identified for setting up Aadhaar camps.
"The Cluster Resource Centre Coordinators (CRCCs) of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA) will be given responsibilities to ensure that every child reading in Primary to Higher Secondary levels must be enrolled between November 1 and November 10," read the circular.
The next phase of Aadhaar enrolment will be conducted between November 20 and November 30.
Meanwhile, for children who have been enrolled earlier under Aadhaar and crossed the age group of 5 to 15 years, biometric authentication will also be done at the Aadhaar centres. The officials have also been directed to upload information of all students from Class-I to XII with Aadhaar number on OPEPA e-governance portal by November 10.
