The Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has decided to take steps to award degree certificates with photographs of students on them as advised by minister of human resource development Prakash Javadekar recently.

While addressing the 20th convocation ceremony of Bharati Vidyapeeth in the city recently, Javadekar had suggested that degree certificates with photographs would make them tamper proof.

When asked about its implementation in SPPU, Nitin Karmalkar vice-chancellor said that the university will take steps to make it happen by the next convocation.

Previously in 2017, University Grants Commission had urged all universities to introduce identification mechanisms like photographs and Aadhar number for degrees and certificates awarded to students and also to inscribe the name of the institution in which a student was enrolled for a programme to study besides the duration of the course.
