Lucknow: The Basic Education Department has issued guidelines regarding the enrolment of male and female students for the academic session 2024-25. As per the guidelines, admission to class one in council, aided, recognized primary and upper primary schools in the state will be granted to a child only upon reaching the age of six years.

According to the instructions issued by the Director of Basic Education to the District Basic Education Officers of across the state, children below six years of age will be enrolled in kindergarten.

It is noteworthy that under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009, the Basic Education Department has set the target of providing 100 percent free education to children in the age group of 6 to 14 in the new academic session. Accordingly, instructions have been given regarding the enrolment process for students.

Aadhaar card will be necessary at the time of enrolment

In the letter issued by Education Director Pratap Singh Baghel, it has been clearly stated that only children who complete six years of age on April 1, 2024 will be enrolled in class one. Enrollment of children under six years of age will not be done under any circumstances. Enrolment of children under six years of age will be done in kindergarten.

In addition to this, after conducting a meeting of the School Management Committee, out-of-school children who are over 6 years of age will be enrolled in age-appropriate classes. Aadhaar number of children should also be mentioned at the time of enrolment. In case the child does not have an Aadhar card, the Aadhar number of their parents should be mentioned. If the parents also do not have an Aadhaar card, they must get one within two weeks of enrolment.

The names of both the parents of the child should also be mentioned in the enrollment register. In the event of the death of both parents, the name of the legal guardian will be mentioned.

Directorate will have to provide information about enrolled students every week

The Director of Basic Education has also said that during enrolment, the ration card number of the child’s family and its category will also be recorded. Along with this, the child’s grade and category will also be mentioned. Furthermore, the Director has instructed all District Basic Education Officers to provide information about the number of enrolled students to the Directorate every week, from April 1 to 30.

Additionally, instructions have been given to run a campaign to provide free education by ensuring enrolment of every child aged six to 14 in school in the new academic session. Notably, an order was issued last year itself regarding admission to class one at the age of six. While some leniency was granted last year, this time the department appears resolute in ensuring full compliance with the instructions.
