Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) partners with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to launch eSanad, a software which will facilitate online attestation of academic documents of Indian students aspiring to go aboard for higher education or employment.
Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj in the presence of the Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, Law and Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad and Minister of HRD Prakash Javadekar launched the e-sanad software.
CBSE, in November 2016, launched its digital repository, Parinam Manjusha, to provide easy access of academic documents online. This repository has also been also involved in the project of creating eSanad which will make it easier for the employers and educational institutions to verify students’ academic records online.
CBSE Chairman RK Chaturvedi, explaining mechanism, said that the verifiers will have to first register to the portal and then seek the CBSE’s approval to verify students academic record. After due approval, verifiers will have to make online payment to access the data. The verification data will be emailed to the verifier and the corresponding student will also be notified.
“This new move is expected to reduce the touts and rackets involved in the verification of documents” , said the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
The bare objective of launching this software is to provide online verification service so as to promote contactless, cashless and paperless document attestation for the applicants in India as well as abroad.
