The Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government had sought the Voter ID and Aadhaar details of all the 87 lakh students in Delhi’s schools along with those of their family members. In a circular dated September 11, the Directorate of Education had, on behalf of the Delhi government sought the details.

However, the circular was opposed and a PIL was filed in the Delhi High Court against the circular by the Government School Teachers’ Association on September 19. The Delhi HC, after hearing the PIL, had given the verdict on October 1 that it cannot be made mandatory for the students and their family members to provide their Aadhaar and Voter Id details to the Delhi government.

However, Vikas Bhadauria, a journalist from ABP News, has tweeted yesterday that despite the HC order, schools in Delhi are still seeking the Voter Id details of parents from the students. In a letter that Bhadauria claimed was from Delhi Public School branches in which a form was attached for filling the voter id details of parents and students, along with photographs and mobile numbers. The letter states that the schools have been asked to collect the data by the Directorate of Education and it is mandatory.

The government seeking voter id details of parents has raised suspicion and is being objected by many.

It is notable here that in the verdict by the Supreme Court of India, though the constitutional validity of Aadhaar was upheld, the court had stated that it is not mandatory for mobile connections, bank accounts and school admissions. Though as per the claims, the Delhi government seems to have stopped asking for Aadhaar details, the seeking of voter id details have created discontent.
