The new certification system introduced by CBSE will not only benefit its past and present students but also those students staying abroad.
While doing away with multiple layers of the present application process, the board will go online as regards the certificates of previous years, which student from any corner of the globe will be able to access. The new online application process will be much faster and cost effective.
The Chairman of CBSE said that passed out students will no more be required to travel or courier drafts and applications to have their certificates or other documents. The process is very simple and one has to apply for the certificate at any regional office.
There is also the facility of digital lockers and in the case of urgent requirement, one can download it from the digital locker. The new online certificate has been introduced this year with the 2015-16 batch.

CBSE will put out certificates of previous years online. As for security is concerned, it will have a digitally verified signature and will be as good as a true copy with PKI encrypted QR code- a safety mechanism against duplicating or tampering.
The board is also planning to bring down the cost of the duplicate certificate. Soon it will introduce an online payment mode. It will also ease the process of authentication. Any organisation seeking verification of certificates or of marks or even date of birth will be able to do so. But for that, they have to register online. Candidates will get updates on the status through SMS and emails.
