  • Context (IE | ET): The Automated Permanent Academic Account Registry (APAAR) ID, or “One Nation One Student ID Card,” is a new program launched by the Ministry of Education (MoE).
  • It helps students keep track of their academic information, like degrees, scholarships, and rewards, all in one place.
  • APAAR is part of the ‘One Nation, One Student ID’ initiative based on the National Education Policy (NEP) of 2020.


  • Simplify education by reducing the need for physical documents.
  • Help state governments track literacy and dropout rates.
  • Enhance state performance in education.
  • Reduce fraud and duplication of certificates.
  • Ensure authenticity by allowing only trusted sources to deposit credits into the system.

How APAAR ID Works?

  • Each student gets a unique APAAR ID linked to the Academic Bank Credit (ABC), a digital repository of their educational credits.
  • ABC stores credits earned by students in both formal and informal learning.
  • Students can digitally store certificates and credits.
  • When students change schools, their ABC data moves with them using the APAAR ID, eliminating the need for physical document transfers.

How to Get an APAAR ID?

  • Registration for creating an APAAR ID is voluntary, not compulsory.
  • Students need to provide basic information, verified using an Aadhaar number.
  • The Aadhaar number is only used for verification and not shared during registration.
  • Students can accept or decline to share their Aadhaar number and demographic details with the MoE.
  • For minors, parents must sign a consent form for using the student’s Aadhaar number.


  • Privacy concerns: Parents and students worry about sharing Aadhaar details and potential data leaks to external parties.
