The admission season is currently underway across the country. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued an important notice regarding the validity of several documents of students including marksheet-cum-passing certificates and migration certificates.
The CBSE has issued the notice as regard to the authenticity of such crucial documents on 'Digilocker.'
The board has issued the notice in view of several instances where certain universities are asking students to submit paper printed copies of the migration certificates. The board has said that the process of issuing printed copies of documents to students is underway.
It is pertinent to mention here that the CBSE had declared the much-awaited results of Class 12 on July 22, 2022. As per existing norms, the CBSE had made available marksheet-cum-passing certificates and migration certificates of the students on Digilocker soon after the publication of the results.
The board has categorically stated that both the documents which are available in the Digilocker are digitally signed by the Controller of Examinations.
"The documents- marksheet-cum-passing certificates and migration certificates available in the Digilocker with digital signature are also legally valid and should be accepted by all higher educational institutions," CBSE said in its notice.
