University Degrees To Now Have Student Photo, Aadhaar Number As UGC Makes It A ‘Must Have’

Published on 23 March, 2017 at 3:21 pm By

Making role of an Aadhaar Card even more important in the country, University Grant Commission (UGC) on March 21 directed all the universities to include student photograph and his/her Aadhaar number on their degrees.

 

In a notice sent by UGC to all the universities across India, they asked them to include Aadhaar number and student photographs on all the degree before it is issued as it will help reduce the number of fake degrees and frauds.

“I request you to introduce identification mechanisms like photograph and Unique ID/Aadhaar number in students’ certificates. Such inscription, you would agree, will go a long way in uniformly marking a student’s personal identity and other associate details,” – UGC Notice



This notice was sent to all universities just a day after Lok Sabha passed the Finance Bill which makes Aadhaar number a mandatory requirement for filing taxes.

The new bill also asks the Aadhaar number to be linked with all the PAN card details or else the PAN card will be invalidated after July 1.

A day before Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has also indicated in the parliament that in the future Aaadhar would be the only form of identification left in India.

The move though comes in contradiction to the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision, where it had noted that Aadhaar cannot be made mandatory before the court comes out with its final decision on its validity.
