"It's not just about ensuring that only students, faculty and authorised persons enter the institute premises. Some students do not carry any identification on them when they leave the campus. If they meet with an untoward incident, there would be no way for the police or anyone nearby to identify the person involved."
"Apart from identification, the ID card provides vital details like the age, contact number and blood group of the holder apart from the institute contact numbers. If informed, the institute can initiate a cycle of helpful measures, including informing the parents of the student."
Sources from the institute said that, the same is being done as students failed to adhere to the norms of carrying an ID on several occasions. The fine money will be utilized for miscellaneous purposes such as funding the Student Wellness Center.
