Aadhaar Card Must for JEE

With a view to prevent impersonation and ensure fair practice, the Joint Apex Board (JAB) which oversees conduct of JEE (Main) exam, has decided to make use of Aadhaar number for JEE (Main) exam 2017.

All students from the States of Assam, Meghalaya and Jammu & Kashmir, where Aadhaar coverage is low, can use passport number, ration card number, bank account number or any other valid Government identity number instead of Aadhaar number.

The CBSE which conducts the exam is also facilitating students who may not have enrolled for Aadhaar to enroll at the nearest enrolment centre and can use 28 digit code printed on the Aadhaar Enrolment slip for applying for JEE exam.

This information was given by the Minister of State (HRD), Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey in a written reply to a Lok Sabha question in December 2016..
