Centre: No Need to Submit Original Certificate at Time of Admission


March 28, 2018

In a clarification issued on Tuesday (read here), the Ministry of Human Resources Department (HRD) has stated that there is no need to submit original certificate at the time of college admissions.


While averring the same, the Ministry relied on University Grants Commission (UGC) notification, according to which no Higher Educational Institution (HEI) shall insist upon a student to submit original academic and personal certificates and testimonials like mark-sheets, school leaving certificates and other such documents at the time of submitting admission form. Further, as per the notification, institution of higher education shall physically verify the originals at the time of admission of the student in his/her presence and return them immediately after satisfying themselves about their authenticity and veracity, keeping their copies self-attested by student for record.
