After CBSE introduced Aadhaar number in the JEE Main application form, the similar feature may be added to NEET 2017 application form also. CBSE conducts both JEE Main and NEET.

NEET applicants may be required to fill their Aadhaar which is a 12 digit unique identification number, in their application form for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). CBSE had introduced the same feature for JEE Main application form as new identification proof for candidates. According to officials, the move is aimed at enhancing security checks at the exam centres and curbing impersonation cases during exam and admission process.

After introducing this feature for JEE Main 2017, CBSE had put the same notification on official NEET website also, indicating to a similar provision for the application form for the national level medical entrance exam also.  Read the complete story here.

 

The possibility for introduction of Aadhaar number in NEET application form has further gained ground after the MHRD minister Prakash Javadekar said that the government is planning to implement the Aadhaar number identification for all national level exams.

“This Aadhaar card acquirement is a work in progress and we will take it to entrance examinations also because the sanctity of examinations is very important. Aadhaar is a photo identity proof and a unique identity. In some states, we see impersonation, which will be prevented. This is a good thing,” the minister was quoted as saying to a National Daily.

 

On November 18, CBSE had announced that Aadhaar number will be mandatory for registration of candidates for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)-the two tier entrance examination for entry into IITs and other top engineering colleges. However, the mandatory clause was later removed and alternative identification modes were added for candidates belonging to the states where Aadhaar has not been completely implemented.

 

However, according to a Supreme Court’s directive, Aadhaar Card can not be made mandatory identification proof except for schemes where government benefits/subsidies are to be given to the citizens. The schemes where Aadhaar Card is mandatory includes PDS Scheme, LPG Distribution Scheme, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, National Social Assistance Programme (Old Age Pensions, Widow Pensions, Disability Pension), Prime Minister's Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) and Employees' Providend Fund Organisation (EPFO).

Ashish pal Student Expert 17th Oct, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

It is generally advised to go through NCERT Books because most of the questions asked are from NCERT. If you complete NCERT Books then almost 85-90% questions will be asked from this book only so you will be having better chances of scoring.

But for complete detailed information and knowledge you can go through JD Lee organic chemistry.

Hope it helps.

Good luck
