Bhubaneswar: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with an important notice regarding issuance of migration certificates to students after completion of Class X, XII board examinations.
As per the latest decision, the Board has now developed an infrastructure to provide soft copies of the migration certificate on DigiLocker to the students.
“Accordingly, it has been decided that hard copy of the migration certificate will be issued only to the students who would make a request for the same to the Board, otherwise soon the result will be declared, and the soft copy of the Migration Certificate will be made available in Digilocker,” the official CBSE notice read.
It is pertinent to mention here that the migration certificate is an important document which indicates that student was the bonafide student of a particular Board.
The document is required when a student is changing Board after class X from one Board to another Board or after Class XII, when a student after passing is seeking admission in higher education system.
The new system is likely to help to students seeking admission in higher education institutions as they are required to provide the same and also in web verification of the documents.
The proposal to provide soft copies of migration certificates was approved by the Examination Committee in its meeting held on 15th December, 2020 and its minutes approved in the Governing Body Meeting held on 23rd December, 2021.
“This change will be made effective from examination 2021 and issuing of hard copy will be discontinued completely from the year 2024 examinations,” the notice added.
