Its now compulsory for candidates to enter their Aadhaar number while filling out their examination form for UP Board exams.
All district inspectors of schools (DIOS) have been instructed to add Aadhaar details of all students and U-DISE code of the school at the time of filing online forms for registration and examinations. The directives are applicable to all government and self-financed schools affiliated to UP Board.
“A valid Aadhaar number will leave no scope for fraudulent registration or impersonation in UP Board exams,” added Yadav.
Earlier, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had issued a WhatsApp number for people to lodge complaints of any wrongdoing during examination procedures. UP is infamous for the cheating mafia, which according to officials comprised of self-financed colleges creating fake enrolments, in connivance with education officials.
