Delhi University has requested various school boards to share direct links of Class 12th results for online document verification.
As the admission process for the session 2020 – 21 commenced on July 20, the University of Delhi has asked school boards across the country to share the links of their Class 12th examination results with the varsity. The request has been made so that the verification of documents can be done online, without the students visiting the varsity for forensic examination of certificates and mark sheets, owing to the ongoing pandemic and social distancing measures.
“We did this exercise in May. We have sent a request letter to various boards across the country to share their links with the university so that verification of documents can happen online. Two boards have shared the links with us and we are hopeful that others will also do so,” PTI quotes Prof. Shobha Bagai, Dean (Admission) as saying.
Delhi University already has direct access to CBSE Class 12th results. The university directly checks the authenticity of mark sheets of the applicants claiming to have passed out from a CBSE – affiliated school. Other than CBSE, the two boards that have agreed to share their link with the university are National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) and Jammu and Kashmir State Board of School Education (JKBOSE). While many state boards have already declared their results, the final results of CBSE are yet to be declared as some exams are scheduled to be conducted in July.
Since last year, Delhi University had made it mandatory to carry out forensic checking of certificates and mark sheets submitted by students seeking admissions for all its departments. The decision was taken in the light of the ‘Ankiv Baisoya controversy’. In 2018, the admission of Ankiv Baisoya, a former president of DU Students’ Union (DUSU), was cancelled by the university after his documents were found to be forged.
The portal for registration of all candidates seeking admission to undergraduate programmes has already been activated. Further details regarding the online admission process can be expected in the coming weeks.
