The Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) is still using the offline mode for the conduct of verification of class 10 and 12 certificates, despite the government’s claims of making services available online across the Union Territory. Candidates who are intending to get their certificates verified have to follow a cumbersome process, apart from paying a hefty fee to get the same done. The fee ranges from Rs 700-750 for the verification of the certificates, and the same comes with the added hardship of waiting endlessly.
One of the candidates told ProKashmiri, “The Government is indeed making services available online, but we fail to understand why they have not ensured to make the process of verification online which could have saved a lot of time.” The candidates also have to pay a hefty fee apart from following the process entirely on their own.
The concerned departments send the request for the verification of certificates along with a cover letter to JKBOSE. Upon receiving that, the concerned candidates have to deposit the necessary fee which sets the process in motion. The candidates, while saying that it gets hectic for them to follow the process, asked that when there is an option available, why don’t the authorities put it to use for making the process hassle-free? “Having entirely online would have made a great difference,” the candidates said.
On the other hand, the JKBOSE authorities do not seem to be in the mood for starting the online facility for the same anytime soon. “We may start the online verification in future, but right now, there are no plans for the same; however, the certificates which would be issued from session 2023, for those, the process would remain online,” the officials told to DailyExcelsior. The officials, however, maintained that even the offline process, which is currently the only mode for the certificate verification, is hassle-free and that the candidates have to just deposit the required fee to set the process in motion.
The lack of online certification verification system is causing inconvenience to the students and making them pay additional fees and wait for long period of time. The authorities should consider implementing an online system for the verification process as it would save a lot of time and make the process hassle-free for the students. However, it’s good to know that the process will be online for the certificates which will be issued from session 2023.
