13th July – Anju along with parents went to SDMC, Primary school to get the ID generated. The concerned person was not available and they were asked to come again.
19th July – SDMC school teacher refused to generate the official ID as Nikki’s name was deleted from the record. As a result the other school also refused to give her the admission in absence of any proof. The SDMC school teacher also refused to give her admission in class 5th as she was over-age.
20th July – Nikki’s parent got the updated Aadhar Card which had the proof that she was able to get admission in class 5th. As a result the SDMC school authorities agreed to give her the admission in class 5th.
