Yesterday, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) had informed the Supreme Court that it had not authorised CBSE to mandatorily take Aadhaar number of students to enroll for appearing in NEET 2018 examination.
Attorney General KK Venugopal had said that he has instructions from Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that just like in Jammu and Kashmir, Meghalaya and Assam, CBSE could use other identity proofs like passport, voter card and ration card for the enrollment purpose.
