For the first time, the board has decided to keep safe the certificates and result of students in a 'DigiLocker' which could be downloaded from its website when needed, he said.
The candidates' result and mark sheet would be uploaded on the same locker. Subsequently, after the announcement of the results, it would provide the hard-copy of the marks sheet. Along with this, all the mark-sheets and the results declared from 2004 till date would also be uploaded on the digital locker, the Education Minister said.
He said that the digital locker would be maintained on the basis of candidates' mobile number and the Aadhar card. Resultantly it would be easier for any recruitment agency to verify any result or certificate of the applicant through this, he said.
"The concerned authority would be able to verify the application. It would save the time and would also avoid the possibility of any kind of fraud," he said.
He said that result can also be checked on mobile app developed by the Board which could be downloaded from Google Play Store by searching Education Board Bhiwani Haryana.
