Aadhaar is basically on-line anytime identity assigned to a resident to cover his/her lifetime. It’s the foundation on that the various delivery systems shall be built. Inspite of full impetus on the project, it’s been observed that school children may be enrolled easily if the schools are made “Aadhaar Enrollment Centre”. CBSE has wide network of schools across the country and therefore has partnered with unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as ‘Registrar’ to gather demographic and bio metric information from residents directly or through Enrollment Agencies.
