5. Aadhaar Card:

Since 2017 (when CBSE was the exam conducting body), aadhaar card has been made mandatory to sit in the exam. An Aadhaar card will help trace the accuracy of the details of the candidates. The Agency will make the most out of the aadhaar details by distributing examination centres in a hassle-free manner. It can shun the requirements of producing multiple documents for the verification.

According to the official notice, ‘Candidates, who are in possession of Aadhaar, shall enter Aadhaar number, name, date of birth & gender in the online application for JEE (Main) 2019 for the purpose of his/her identity and authentication thereof’.

For the candidates who have enrolled for the Aadhaar card but have not got the copy can enter the enrolment number instead. Students with no aadhaar details at all are required to visit the nearest enrolment centre, apply for one and insert the enrolment number. This is a mandatory step except for the candidates of Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and Meghalaya. Students from these three states can produce the passport number, ration card number, bank account number or any other valid government identification number.
