New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will issue Class 10th and 12th migration certificates through DigiLocker. The hardcopy of the certificates will be provided to current batch on demand, but the board will stop providing hard copy of the migration certificate by 2024.
Hardcopy will only be provided for students who make certain requirements alike. Depending on the board, certificates will be available in DigiLocker as soon as the results are announced. “This is expected to help students who want to be accepted into the higher education system as they are required to provide the same and in web document authentication,” CBSE said.
This change will take effect from the CBSE 2021 board exams and the hard copy release will completely stop by 2024 exams. Students can read the official notice provided by the board.
