UIDAI to build e-registry of students

The registry would also be helpful in tracking students’ mobility and the imprinting of the UID number on performance record of individual students, such as marksheets, merit certificates, migration certificates, etc, will be of help to prospective employers and educational institutions.

The MoU was signed by HRD Ministry Joint Secretary Amit Khare and UIDAI Deputy Director-General Anil Kachi in the presence of HRD Minister Kapil Sibal and UIDAI chairman Nandan Nilekani.

The imprinting of UID numbers on performance records will also help in tracking problems of fake degrees. The number can also be utilised in facilitating education loans and scholarship schemes as well as in the implementation of the mid-day meals scheme.
