According to the RTE Act 2009, the school head has been ordered to enroll students in classes one to eight based on their age. Students who do not have an Aadhaar card have been asked to register and then produce their Aadhaar card later. Aside from that, schools are not permitted to ask for the registration number issued by the Punjab school education board for students enrolling in grades nine to twelve.
