Aadhar is not mandatory for schools
Thanks for the response but i see most of the schools asking copy of child aadhar. is that optional?
You can always share Passport for any ID
Aadhar can be made once they are in India and after a minimum number of days residence here ( Pls check Aadhar application info online and latest info).
Differs from school to school - check with the respective school/(s) where you are applying. Technically, as per a Supreme Court ruling, they are not supposed to make it mandatory. But, ground reality is different. Several state education department authorities and the boards (CBSE, ICSE, etc) insist on mandatory Aadhaar and several schools therefore ask for it as well. Some schools may be lenient on the timelines, moreso because of COVID-related constraints - like they may say: Not required at the time of application, but need to submit later - at the time of final admission / before academic calendar begins / within 'X' days or months, etc. Check from the respective school/(s) where you are applying on such timeline flexibility as well.
