The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has partnered with the Department of Electronics and Information Technology to extend the DigiLocker facility to Class 10 (ICSE) and 12 (ISC) exam candidates at affiliated schools.

DigiLocker is a digital locker service that provides dedicated personal electronic space in a government-owned public cloud storage, where users can keep their documents, files or certificates.

From 2017, the council will make digitally signed copies of the statement of marks and the pass certificates available to candidates via DigiLocker in addition to the traditional hard copies, said Gerry Arathoon, CISCE chief executive and secretary, New Delhi.

In addition to this, digitally signed migration certificates will also be made available to ISC candidates.

To access their digital documents, candidates will have to create an account with DigiLocker at https://digilocker.gov.in. After logging into the DigiLocker account, candidates will have to follow the instructions provided on the dashboard to access the required documents.

“The individual will also be able to download or share the documents with various stakeholders as and when required. The storage space is linked to the Unique Identification Authority of India (Aadhaar number) of the user. It is free, secure and user-friendly,” said Arathoon.
