Aadhar card Mandatory for UP Government School Teachers. Keeping in line with the decisions of the BJP government in the central, the Uttar Pradesh government, under the rule of Yogi, has already made it compulsory that the school teachers, teaching in the government schools will have to get their Aadhar Cards. The Basic Education Minister, Anupma Jaiswal has already made the official announcement of the program. As of now, the state has a total of 1.68 lakh schools where the total number of teachers is about 4.95 lakh.
Implementation of the scheme Aadhar card Mandatory for UP Government School Teachers
According to the announcement of the state government, all government school teachers, teaching the primary and/or the upper primary standards will have to submit their Aadhar Code to the respective authority as soon as possible. The state authority, monitoring the scheme is of the opinion that it will not be as hard as most of the teaching staffs have already received their Unique Identification Code. Only a certain section of the teachers are only left to get their Unique Identification Codes.
Purpose of the scheme
Most of the teachers of the government monitored schools draw their monthly salaries from the bank accounts. The salary is directly transferred to the respective accounts. As the government has made it mandatory that all the accounts must be linked with the Aadhar Code, it is only obvious that the salary accounts of the teachers have to be linked too. With this scheme, the education department will not only be able to identify the accounts of each teacher, but it will also play the role of an Identification pass too. With the implementation of the program, the entire process will be made streamlined, and a proper transparency will also be maintained. Similarly UP Govt announce that Aadhaar must for UP Board Registrations and Exams.
What if teachers resist the scheme?
In case any teacher cannot provide the Aadhar Card or does not want to produce the numbers, then their salary will be stopped immediately. The money will not be transferred to the salary account of the respective teachers, and he/she will not be able to draw the money. Thus, it is obvious that all teachers will have to comply with the program.
Last date of implementation
The announcement has already been made in the starting of the month of June. It says that all the teachers, teaching in the upper primary and primary standards will have to submit the Aadhar Code by the end of July. The linking of the Aadhar Card of the students, studying in the government and government aided schools has also been announced by the state education authority. The minister has also commented that this process will also have to be completed by the end of July. As per the survey reports, number of students studying in the upper primary and primary level is 1.78 crore. About 30% of these pupils have their Aadhar Cards. It is the duty of the state government to provide Aadhar pass to the pupils living in remote areas as well.
Carrying out the program
It has been said that Aadhar Enrollment Camps will be established in the schools so that those teachers who are still to get their Unique Identification Code can enroll without many problems. The state government has also said that those students who reside in the farthest corners of the state will not have to come to the city for enrollment. Camps will be made by the authority in suitable places, and the students will have to reach the center and get their cards. The task will be entrusted to government listed agencies who charge a fee of Rs. 50 for the enrollment of each Unique Identification Pass.
Drawback of the scheme
Apart from all these, the program will not come in handy for the para-teachers or the teachers who are working as a proxy for another teacher. The authority ought to have done something for the development and representation of these individuals as well.
The program will assist the state government to keep a tab on the number of students and teachers, enlisted in the government schools. After all, the main reason for the implementation of the linking process is to help the authority and the individual to keep a close watch on all sectors.
