With the new instructions from the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY), several documents are available and can be downloaded from Digilocker. The ministry has instructed all the institutions, departments, organizations, offices, etc. to accept the documents issued from digilocker. All these documents issued are to be considered accurate and valid. So when all types of documents like driving license, passport, SSC mark sheets, HSC mark sheets, PAN card, etc. are available in Digilocker, is it possible to get the university transcript from there as well? Let’s check.
Last year Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) released a statement that digilocker will serve as the digital storehouse of all the documents and all to be considered an alternative to the original. While there are a number of documents already uploaded by the respective departments, the user has the provision to upload their own documents as well. For example, students can easily get their HSC or SSC mark sheets which are already uploaded by CBSE or their state boards, and also if students already have their university transcripts like Osmania University transcripts,, JNTUH transcripts, or any other university transcripts, then they can upload the same in their digilocker account and download it whenever they need it. Currently, the digilocker stores all marksheets and important certificates issued by government departments such as UIDAI, IT departments, etc. And MeitY is focusing on expanding the number of documents that can be downloaded from Digilocker. Also, the ministry has directed all the universities and colleges to update their students’ documents like results and certificates in their digilocker accounts. Therefore students can now easily download their marksheets from their digilocker account by login in via their aadhar number and mobile OTP.
So now when it comes to downloading university transcripts online, only a handful of universities have uploaded their students’ transcripts in digilocker. Transcripts are something that can be considered as a document made to order i.e. not every student needs their Osmania university transcript or JNTUH transcript or any other university transcript and university issues transcript certificates only to the students who apply for it. That also pretty much makes sense. Because the university has a lot of things to manage and spending time on making transcript certificates for every student, who might never need them, seems illogical. Therefore, unlike school and college marksheets which are very much useful, not all university transcripts are available in digilocker. But if you already have your own transcript certificate then you can store them in the digilocker vault without any worry.
