Dig­i­tal De­grees

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

The In­dian Min­istry of Hu­man Re­source Devel­op­ment is go­ing to launch a dig­i­tal data­base at all aca­demic lev­els from sec­ondary school cer­tifi­cates to higher ed­u­ca­tion de­grees and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions. A part of the Na­tional Aca­demic De­pos­i­tory (NAD), it will help ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in the coun­try to is­sue all board cer­tifi­cates and de­grees in a dig­i­tal for­mat to fa­cil­i­tate timely re­trieval and ver­i­fi­ca­tion of aca­demic records. The on­line data­base will also help deal with the is­sue of fake ed­u­ca­tional de­grees, forged cer­tifi­cates and mark­sheets. Stu­dents will be able to up­load their non-aca­demic cer­tifi­cates, awards and pro­fes­sional doc­u­ments on the data­base.
