Going against RTE, government schools now demand Aadhaar card for admission

Government schools in Delhi are refusing to grant admission to children without their Aadhaar card.

In a move which totally disregards the Right to Education (RTE) Act 2009, government schools in Delhi are refusing to grant admission to children without their Aadhaar card and resident proof.

The admissions, which started from 1 April, are for Class 6 to Class 8 students from recognised schools into government schools.

The circular issued by the Directorate of Education (DOE) demands that parents submit their telephone, electricity or water bill, ration card or bank passbook as an address proof.

Moreover, a certain school has also fixed an upper age limit for admissions, though the Delhi HC did away with the upper age limit for admissions to nursery classes. Angry RTE activists reveal that this is completely against the law as no such requirement had been mentioned in the government circular.

The circular had also stated that applicants could submit a date of birth declaration on plain paper if they did not possess a birth certificate.
