To curb forgery of certificates Ministry of HRD has instructed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to carry out a pilot project on National Academy Depository, (NAD). Earlier we had notified about NAD, you can read about the benefits of maintaining a national database of certificates by visiting here.
The database would facilitate online verification of academic awards issued by the CBSE thereby removing attempts made to use fake/forged academic certificates. As a part of pilot implementation, CBSE has already made available the academic awards of following examinations on the NAD system:
(i) Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) 2011
(ii) CBSE Board XII Standard Exam 2011
The pilot is available free of cost for a maximum period of 3 months from the date of installation (26.07.2011).
With advancement in technology fakers can easily replicate marks sheets, certificates which look exactly same as the originals. Now is the time to put a stop to forgery of certificates.
What do you think? Will maintaining database of certificates helps? Leave your thoughts!
