Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan recently participated in the National Conference on APAAR: One Nation One Student ID Card in New Delhi, where he underscored the pivotal role of the APAAR ID as a globally recognized document for students across India.



Highlighting the significance of various Digital Public Infrastructures (DPIs) that have emerged in the country, Pradhan noted the establishment of 53 DPIs across 16 countries, with 19 located within India. He commended Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of Digital India, which has led to the issuance of 25 crore APAAR IDs, a testament to the program's substantial traction.



What is APAAR?



The Automated Permanent Academic Account Registry (APAAR) initiative, aligned with the National Education Policy (NEP) of 2020 and the National Credit and Qualifications Framework (NCrF), aims to revolutionize the academic journey of students in India. Each student receives a unique and permanent 12-digit APAAR ID, facilitating centralized access to their educational records and accomplishments.



The conference also discussed initiatives like the Holistic Progress Card and Vidya Samiksha Kendra, highlighting their connection to APAAR and their contributions to enhancing the educational landscape in India.



Pradhan emphasized the seamless integration of APAAR IDs with other digital platforms such as the Academic Bank of Credit and Digilocker, streamlining educational operations. He also highlighted the role of digital resources like Swayam and DIKSHA in enhancing educational quality.



With APAAR facilitating the tracking of 260 million students nationwide and issuance of Permanent Education Numbers to 25 crore children, the initiative prioritizes ensuring a seamless schooling experience, aligning with Prime Minister Modi's vision of ease of living.
