An online mechanism has been launched by the board to verify the documents of the students who will be going to abroad for study after the result for the class 12 is declared.
With this mechanism, students need not to run around colleges and universities for getting their documents verified.External Affairs Ministry and HRD ministry launched 'eSanad' on Wednesday which can be used for the online verification, with CBSE's 'Parinam Manjusha', academic repository of degrees ad certificates of students.
Statement from HRD minister
"A centralised CBSE digital repository of academic records was launched in September last year. Employers and educational institutions can use this repository to verify academic records of students online," Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said in a recent PTI report.
Features of eSanad:
- CBSE chairman, RK chaturvedi said "the verifiers can register on the portal, after which their request will be approved by CBSE"
- After the approval from the board students can verify the data by making online payment.
- After payment, the verification data will be emailed to the verifier.
On the launch event of the 'Sanad' External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said "that the new system will reduce the role of "touts" who were running a "racket" so far."
She also said "There were touts who would charge Rs 10,000 to 15,000 and get the verification done through some contacts. It was a big racket which was functioning which was not only putting the applicants through financial stress but also they were required to go through a tedious process".
When asked about the marks moderation policy, Prakash javadekar said that CBSE will continue to give grace marks but spiking of marks in any form beyond that is not acceptable in any case.
