Alankit e-Governance division believes in providing quality information and high standard of service delivery, encouraging new advanced technology and making the system more accountable, transparent and effective for the clients.

National Academic Depository (NAD)

The National Academic Depository (NAD) is an initiative of MHRD to maintain a national-level database of all academic qualifications in electronic form which will facilitate online verification and easy retrieval of academic records. The objective is to hold the awards details i.e. mark sheets, passing certificates, etc. issued by the various Academic Institutions to ensure that the award circulating in the job market is an authentic award in terms of the contents printed thereon.

This would benefit the institutions, students and employers by enabling online access of academic qualifications, eliminating the need for persons to approach educational institutions for obtaining authenticated copies or for verification of awards as well as reduce the need for institutions to preserve records related to academic performance of students for a number of years. The system would also eliminate fraudulent practices such as forging of certificates, mark sheets, etc. by facilitating online verification.

Alankit, as NAD agent, performs services like authorization of certificate holder registration request, mapping of academic awards to certificate holder account and issuance of authentication certificate.
