New Delhi: There is another new development for UGC-NET November 2017 exam as the requirement of Aadhaar for the applicants of UGC-NET(November) 2017 is compulsory. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to use Aadhaar for the applicants of UGCNET(November) 2017.
Applicants who have Aadhaar will enter Aadhaar number, name, date of birth & gender while submitting online application for UGC-NET (November) 2017 for the purpose of his/her identity and authentication thereof. Applicants not yet enrolled for Aadhaar, will have to make application for Aadhaar enrolment in case he/she is entitled to obtain Aadhaar as per section 3 of Aadhaar Act. The notification released by the CBSE also informed that such applicant may visit any Aadhaar enrolment center (list available at www.uidai.gov.in) to get enrolled for Aadhaar.
However, the notification mentioned that the above provisions shall be applicable in all states except J&K, Assam & Meghalaya. The applicants from the states of J&K, Assam & Meghalaya need to enter the passport number, ration card number, bank account number or any other valid Govt. identity number provided they should select the city of examination in these states only.
CBSE said that the use of Aadhaar for the applicants of UGC-NET(November) 2017 will result in accuracy of the applicants’ details. This will also help in ascertaining identities of the applicants at the examination centres in a convenient and hassle free manner. Aadhaar obviates the need for producing multiple documents to prove one’s identity.
CBSE will conduct the next UGC-NET for Junior Research Fellowship & Eligibility for Assistant Professor on 05th November 2017 (Sunday). The candidates will apply UGC-NET online from 11 August 2017. The last date for applying online is 30 August 2017 while fee can be paid up to 31 August 2017.
