The central government is creating a student-wise database of all the students enrolled in school in India. Under the project, Unified District Information System for Education (U-DISE) managed by National Institute of Educational Planning and Administration (NIEPA), data of school teachers and students are being collected.
Minister of State (HRD), Upendra Kushwaha in a written reply to a Lok Sabha informed that as an integral part of the U-DISE, the department of School Education & Literacy has initiated SDMIS in 2016-17 to collect child-wise data with Aadhaar number.
Every student is provided a Unique Student ID generated through the system which would lead to the creation of a National level student-wise database giving full details of all students in all Government, Aided and Private schools from standard I to standard XII. This would also help to track all the students throughout the school-cycle.
