Students stopped from writing exam for not having Aadhar Card, later allowed

Bhopal: Several students faced a hurdle at Government Naveen High School No. 01 in Morena on Monday as they were prevented from taking the MP Board exams for not possessing Aadhar cards, despite having their admit cards in hand.

The incident triggered panic among students and angered parents. Swift action was taken when they reached out to the District Education Officer (DEO), Dr. AK Pathak, promptly informing him of the situation. In response, Dr. Pathak directed the teachers to permit the students to proceed with their exams immediately. Monday’s exams for MP Board class 10 students included the Hindi paper.

Despite being equipped with admit cards for the high school examination, students were halted from entering the examination hall. Upon arrival at the school, teachers conducting checks demanded Aadhar cards from the students. In response, the students explained that the admit card did not contain any such instruction, leading them to not bring their Aadhar cards.

An argument ensued between the accompanying family members and the teachers, who insisted that entry without an Aadhar card would not be allowed. Frustrated with the situation, the concerned parties contacted DEO Dr. AK Pathak, registering their complaint. Dr. Pathak emphasized that no student should be deprived of their exams under any circumstances, warning of strict action against teachers if they continued to enforce such restrictions.
