    MUMBAI: MaharashtraGovernment has decided to link schoolstudents' admissionregistration numbers to Aadhar card in order to effectively implement the Right to Education Act.
    A campaign to prepare Aadhaarcards for school children will be undertaken from April 27 to June 26, according to a government resolution (GR) issued here on Tuesday.
    The state governmenthas asked the local administration to ensure that school children at the taluka and village levels are issued Aadhaar cards within 60 days and the UID numbers are linked to their school admission numbers.
    Linking of students' admission registration number to Adhaar card will facilitate tracking of the child in the education system. The government clarified this was being done to ensure the Right to Education Act (RTE) was implemented properly, the GR said.
    It will help government verify whether students are enrolled in schools and parents can also be kept in the loop over their child's educational progress, it said.
    Block education officers have been asked to compile data relating the number of children with Aadhaar cards and forward it to respective district collectorates.
    The government has also asked the local administration to publicise the campaign.
    The RTE Act ensures that children in the 6-14 age group are not left out of the educational system.
    The GR said the biggest challenge to ensure success of the RTE Act is to bring non-school going children in the education fold.

    I presume the Adhar card will keep a tag on the number of children in school so that the statistic compiled is accurate. This is will assist in policy planning to include the funds to be earmarked for Mid Day meal and infrastructure creation to make education at the primary level more attractive and beneficial.
