Online access of degrees will prevent fraudulent practices

Online access of degrees will prevent fraudulent practices

February 12, 2019

Maintaining academic records in a digital depository would be boon for JNU students. In order to offer a hassle free access of the academic records, degrees and diplomas to its students, and to eliminate fraudulent practices, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has uploaded as many as 8482 diplomas, degrees and certificates. BA, MA, MPhil and PhD students passing out after 2014 till date, can get the degrees in the National Academic Depository (NAD).

 

"This will stop fraudulent practices such as forging of certificates and mark-sheets. NAD will have online verifications, which will control fake degrees certifications," said Satish Chandra Garkoti, rector-II, highlighting the benefits of digitisation of degrees.

 

NAD aims to offer a credible and convenient mechanism for online lodging, verification and authentication of the academic awards and also validate and guarantee its authenticity and safe storage.

 

"This convenient, accessible, faster and secured method of accessing, retrieval and storing the academic awards including degrees, diplomas and certificates along with mark sheets and evaluation reports electronically, will also make verification of a person easier,' added Garkoti, who has been involved with the project that started in May 2018.

 

"The move will also do away the process of issuance of duplicate academic awards and will be a boon for those who need their degrees or diplomas at the last minute," he told the Education Times.

 

This will prevent the risk of losing, spoiling and damaging the academic awards. JNU has set up the NAD for its students as per the guidelines of MHRD and UGC. The university did not get any fund from government for the implementation of the project. The project was completed in association with the Central Depository Services Limited (CDSL) depository, an agency already shortlisted by the MHRD for setting up NAD across universities. JNU was among the first to sign MoU with CDSL.

 

"The conventional method of maintaining academic records is cumbersome. Students often faced difficulties in obtaining the copies of their certificates/mark-sheets, if it was lost or destroyed," concluded Garkoti.
