In the Internet
age, it has become common for university and secondary exam results to be
published on the web. More often than not candidates will be seeking
admissions to other institutions or applying for jobs based on such results
even before formal certificates are issued by the agencies.
In such a
scenario, the recipients of such declaration of marks have a dilemma whether
they should proceed with the selection process without waiting for the formal
certificates even provisionally. Candidates today are finding themselves at
the receiving end when some individual institutions are in default while
despatching certificates while the selectors have candidates from other
institutions to chose from. In such cases, the candidates may miss an
application deadline solely because of the default from the institution.
but true problem of the young achievers is being addressed by
Cyber Evidence Archival Center with a
proposal to extend its service to the issue of "Section 65 B-IEA Certified
Copies of Web Published Marks Cards".
certificates are issued to the apparent owners of the information who have
valid access data and who request for such certificates after payment of a
service charge of R 100/-. plus courier charges of RS 30/-
feature of this certification would be that genuine employers or institutions
who would like to get a direct confirmation of the certificate may send their
queries through e-mail to CEAC and such queries would be addressed for a
period of one year without any charge. Such Query service may continue
provided candidates/registrants renew their entries.
For the purpose
of such queries, each registrant would be given a unique ID which may be
quoted by the organizations making the enquiry.
of the results and a query service is a fore runner to the integration of this
information to the "Background Check" of candidates recommended by Nasscom in
the context of the BPOs, for which Naavi.org has already suggested a module of
"Ethical BPO Professional Training".
(P.S: The service is
presented as a prototype and may be developed further only if
appropriate encouragement is received from the industry and public. Any
private sector company intending to develop this service may also seek further
assistance from Naavi.)
