Must read

Kohima, Oct 20: Nagaland government is set to implement ‘One Nation, One Student ID’ called ‘Automated Permanent Academic Account Registry (APAAR) for every student from pre-primary to higher education as a part of the National Education Policy (NEP).

School Education principal director (PD) Thavaseelan K said that the initiative would be very helpful for all students as their academic data, such as degrees, scholarships, rewards, and other credits, could be saved digitally, accessed at one go, and even transferred.

He said that educational institutions had been instructed to organise meetings of parents and teachers between October 16 and 18 to discuss the importance of APAAR ID.

This is in addition to the 12-digit Aadhaar ID that every student has. The APAAR ID, an Education Ecosystem Registry or edulocker is to be treated as a lifelong identification number and will track students’ academic journey and achievements.

Thavaseelan said the initiative would help the students when they go for higher studies, but added that this would be done only after their parents gave their consent.
