Tamper-proof matric certificates in two hours
PATNA: Principal secretary, education department, Anjani Kumar Singh on Saturday inaugurated four newly-constructed computerized certificate distribution counters and two counters to lodge complaints under the Right to Public Services Act on the premises of Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB).
Singh described opening of the centres as an important step and said the applicants would now get class X mark-sheets and certificates immediately. He said that earlier, the applicants had to wait for several days to get their certificates and mark-sheets. The system would bring transparency and no one would be able to tamper with the certificates, Singh said and added that the applicants can now lodge complaints at any of the two counters under the Right to Public Services Act in the event of delay in getting their certificates.
BSEB chairman Rajmani Prasad Singh said the applicants would now get their certificates and mark-sheets within two hours. Earlier, the applicants had to wait for seven to 15 days for getting their certificates, he said and added that the counters would start functioning from Monday.
He said that only those students who passed the matriculation examination in 2006 or later would get their certificates from the counters. Officials are trying to make this service online so that students can get their certificates without coming to the BSEB office. Efforts are also on to provide the certificates and mark-sheets of earlier period too, he added.
