Schools kids will now get their own unique identity numbers with the government planning to track their mobility through electronic registration. Under the plan the UID number will have an imprint on performance records like mark sheet, merit certificates, migration certificates of all students. An MOU to this effect was signed between UIDAI and MHRD today.

The ministry plans to use UID to trace fake degrees. The same will also be helpful in de-matting academic certificates, facilitate education loans, scholarships and implement schemes like mid day meal.

The MoU was signed between Amit Khare, joint secretary in the HRD ministry and Anil Kachi, deputy director general in the UIDAI in presence of HRD minister, Kapil Sibal and UIDAI chairman, Nandan Nilekani.

The HRD ministry will co-operate and collaborate with the UIDAI in conducting proof of concept (PoC) studies, pilots to test the working of the technology and process of enrollment into the UID database, identify registrars for the implementation of the UID project (PoC and pilots).

The ministry will help ensure that the registrar shall do all that is necessary to effectively complete the PoCs and pilots; and put in place an institutional mechanism to effectively oversee and monitor the implementation of the UID project and provide logistic and liaison support to the staff and representatives of UIDAI.
