In a groundbreaking move towards educational reform, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has unveiled its ambitious plan for the implementation of 'One Nation, One Student ID' through the Automated Permanent Academic Account Registry (APAAR). This initiative, outlined in the party's election manifesto titled 'Sankalp Patra,' aims to revolutionize the way academic qualifications, credit scores, and certificates are stored for students from pre-primary to higher education levels.

One Nation One Student ID Card

Under this visionary scheme, the BJP envisions a seamless educational ecosystem where every student's academic journey is securely recorded and easily accessible through a centralized database. The APAAR platform will serve as a comprehensive repository, facilitating efficient verification of academic credentials and streamlining administrative processes across educational institutions nationwide.
