Due to Covid-19 pandemic situation, there is a disruption in supplying the original certificates, marksheets, migration certificates to the students passing out from Plus II board examination recently. As a result, they may fail to show the original certificates for verification at the time of admission.
Keeping this peculiar situation in mind, the state government has asked principals of all degree colleges with 5-year integrated courses to accept the downloaded mark sheets with self attestation for verification. “Colleges or universities should not insist the students to handover the original migration certificates, passing from council of higher secondary education (CHSE), other boards, such as CBSE/ICSE,” said the department letter.
Students should submit an undertaking to the principal or admission-in-charge to show the original certificates and mark sheets within 12 days from the date of admission for 1st selection students and five days for second selection students. For migration certificates/caste certificates or persons with disabilities (PwD) certificates, students can show the original documents within one month from the date of admission, failing which, their admission shall be cancelled.
The department said the students should not be debarred from taking admission for want of any original certificates including caste or PwD certificates.
“If any student fails to report for admission due to any reason, parents/guardians or any authorised person by the student may be allowed to report for admission on behalf of the student. In such situation, they can also give undertaking for the student. But if the college authority feels that the downloaded marksheets or other certificates as forged ones, then they may not allow them for admission,” said the official sources.
