ICSE, ISC exam results: The students who appeared in Indian Certificate Secondary Education (ICSE) and Indian School Certificate (ISC) examinations conducted by the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) will be given DigiLocker facility, a government-owned public cloud storage space, to store and share their documents, reported The Indian Express. The Council will issue digitally signed versions of marksheets and pass certificates to the students, which they can directly share with various stakeholders easily using this government’s digital storage platform which is linked to their Unique Identification Authority of India (Aadhaar number). These digital versions of documents, however, will be issued in addition to their hard copies.
DiGi Locker was launched by the Government of India in 2015 for issuance and verification of documents and certificates in a digital way to encourage paperless governance. With the facility extended to ICSE and ISC students, they can access their digital documents anytime, anywhere and also share it online with convenience. In a notice issued by CISCE Chief Executive Gerry Arathoon, the official said: “the service is free, secure and user friendly”. The only need for students is to create accounts with DigiLocker, which can be easily done in five steps at its official website digilocker.gov.in.
