University Grants Commission

New Delhi, January 5, 2022 — University Grants Commission (UGC), India, has issued a communication addressed to Vice Chancellors of all universities and Secretaries of Higher and School Education of all states.

UGC has informed them that the National Academic Depository (NAD) is an online storehouse of academic awards (Degrees, Mark-Sheets, and others) lodged by the Academic Institutions in a digital format. It lets students get authentic documents/certificates in digital form directly from their original issuers anytime, anywhere without any physical interference.

The Ministry of Education (MOE) Government of India has designated the University Grants Commission (UGC) as an authorized body to implement NAD as a permanent scheme without levy of any user charges, in co-operation with the DigiLocker, as a single depository of NAD. As a result, educational Institutions can register themselves and upload academic awards of their institution on NAD through the DigiLocker NAD portal, the UGC letter explains.

The DigiLocker platform of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India, can pull students’ Degrees, Mark-sheets, and other documents into the issued documents section in an electronic form once uploaded through the DigiLocker-NAD platform by the original issuer. UGC further states that these electronic records on the DigiLocker platform are valid documents per the Information Technology Act, 2000 provisions.

Accordingly, UGC has asked all Academic Institutions to accept Degrees, Certificates, Mark-sheets, and other related documents available as “Issued Documents” in DigiLocker Account as “Valid Documents.”
