Obtaining a duplicate copy of crucial academic documents can be a herculean task which many have faced at least once in their lifetime. Taking such difficulties into account, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with a safe, quick and viable solution for students.
The IT Department of the Board has recently developed in-house portal named DADS (Duplicate Academic Document System).
The facility will obviate the human contact and physical presence of the students required so far and cut short the travel, time and energy spent by students and parents.
Through the DADS portal, students and parents can now obtain duplicate marksheets, passing certificate and migration certificate.
The new system has been introduced keeping in view the prevailing COVID conditions and predicaments of students in mind.
Students will have to log on to website www.cbse.nic.in and apply on the link https://cbseit.in/cbse/web/dads/home.aspx for the procedure and options.
CBSE officials claim that they get several requests from students for duplicate copies of their academic documents either because they are lost or are mutilated.
At present, students invariably approach the concerned Regional Offices in person, apply on a prescribed form and deposit required fees in the banks or alternately send forms and bank drafts by post.
Under the new system, the concerned Regional Offices, on receipt of the applications, will print academic documents and dispatch them through speed post.
“A tracking system will enable the students to trace the status of application and dispatched details. This portal however will give option to students for both digital copy as well as printed copy of the academic document to choose from,” CBSE said in a notice.
