CBSE documents are now available on digi locker




Those students who have cleared the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)  Class X and Class XII this year need not carry the hard copies of their marks cards or transfer certificate. Instead, a mobile number is enough to present their documents to the concerned agencies. In a decision which will have a long-lasting impact on the way, document verification is done in our educational institutes and the government agencies, the CBSE has decided to store the marks cards and transfer certificate of all the students on digi locker website. This can be verified within few seconds via an Ontime Password System (OTP).


An announcement in this regard has been made by  Anil Swarup, Secretary of Ministry of Human Resource and Development. In a series of tweets, he stated that mark sheets, Pass & Migration certificates of all 28 lakhs candidates of CBSE Class XII and X  exams are now available in students' digital lockers. These digital documents are digitally signed, DigiLocker verified and also have QR codes.


According to the authorities, these documents can be accessed by signing up on the DigiLocker website developed by the National Informatics Center (NIC).  Separate link will be provided to pull it from CBSE database which is registered as an issuer organization for the service.


According to the authorities, these digi documents can be accessed via two ways.  If a student provides his mobile number to CBSE, he or she would receive their DigiLocker account data through SMS. That can be used to access the documents. In case, if a student did not provide the mobile number to CBSE, one needs to follow few simple steps like  signing at the digi locker website, syncing the Aadhar number with the digi locker and saving the documents on the digi locker website.


Digi Locker App: interestingly to ensure that students will not face any problem at the time of the document verification, the Digi Locker website has developed an App. This App has been made available on all the major app platforms.


Revaluation process

Meanwhile, in a big victory for the struggle carried out by the CBSE students since this year the CBSE has allowed students to apply for the revaluation. This is applicable to both the Class X and XII students. This process has taken up from the Friday, June 1.


According to the CBSE authorities, the candidates can apply for the revaluation via online.


It can be recalled that the CBSE had scrapped this revaluation system in 2017. But upset by the board decision, many students had approached the Delhi high court seeking relief. On the court’s intervention, the board had allowed re-evaluation on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.


According to the authorities, this revaluation process will have three stages.  The candidate has to first apply for rechecking and then ask for a photocopy of the answer sheet before being eligible for re-evaluation. Students seeking to recheck can apply and make payments online from June 1 to June 5.  Rechecking/re-evaluation process and details for Classes X and XII CBSE examinations now available on CBSE web portal.


According to the fee fixed by the CBSE,  the process isn’t cheap. For rechecking (which is a recount of marks), an applicant will have to shell out Rs 500 per subject. The cost of getting the photocopy of an answer book is Rs 700 for Class XII and Rs 500 for Class X. For re-evaluation, applicants have to pay Rs 100 per question for both classes.


Students who apply for rechecking will their results by June 14, 2018. Thereafter, they can seek a copy of the answer sheet on June 15 and 16, 2018. The copies will be sent by June 20, 2018, the board said.


Candidates who undergo these two processes can apply for re-evaluation on June 21 and 22.


In 2014, CBSE had decided to allow Class XII candidates to not only get a photocopy of their evaluated answer sheets but also seek re-evaluation instead of just a recount. It started with seven subjects — English, Hindi, physics, chemistry, mathematics, political science, and economics — which was later extended to 11 subjects in 2015. Re-evaluation was stopped in 2017.
