                      If a candidate from one of these three states (JK, am and Meghalaya) gets an Adhar card in other states , can she/he opt for the exam? Is he/she bound to select examination center in these 3 states only?

                          But NRI students cannot apply for Aadhar from abroad in such short notice. They need to be excluded similar to JandK, am, Meghalaya students and Pport numbers can be used for cross checking the Date of Birth etc.

                            How can gulf students from abroad can apply for aadhaar within such short notice when application process needs to visit authorised UDAI or the so-called cbse facilitation center for biometric etc.???.It is simple common sense to have at least cbse facilitators in this region as the board have registered schools here and JeeMain has exam centers. If there is no such centers, these students need to have some way out from the compulsory Aadhaar. To travel to India for applying aadhaar for students, especially when they are preparing for the board exam in 2017, is extremely difficult and stressful. The ultimate result of this is a loss of complete year for such students.

                              There is no provision for NRI students yet to apply for Aadhaar card, last heard, MEA minister gave urance to provide the facility in future. CBSE would likely to give a clarification on this.

                                      Actually full notification hasn't been released by the CBSE yet. The board shall release information on NRI applicants on December 1, 2016.
