According to me, there is no need for identity card in the schools or colleges. Everyone in the college knows the student and what is the use of identity card there? The identity cards are said to be possessed by the students always and they should be able to produce that when the lecturers or any other person related to the school/college asks them to produce the card. They also warn them that it will be a violation of the rules and be punishable if they fail to produce the card. That much of imposition of rules is not necessary I think. Even if they produce the identity cards to the students, they should stop forcing the students to have that always. There is no need to have it all the times. Sometimes students may forget that, not intentionally but due to some other reasons, but I have seen many schools and convents punishing the students when they forget the card. That practice has to be stopped.
Sometimes it may be necessary to have an identity card in school libraries, but they issue borrower's card separately to borrow the books in the library. Then what is the use of the identity card? Many schools have made issuing the identity cards a money making business as I have myself seen in my surroundings. No doubt the parents of those are also rich and are capable of bearing all those expenses, but why should anyone pay for unnecessary reasons?
