National Academic Depository (NAD)

National Academic Depository (NAD)

 Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) projects, respectively, include Digi Locker and NAD. The idea for the National Academic Depository (NAD) originated from an MHRD initiative to give academic institutions a 24 x 7 online depository to store and publish their academic awards. An academic award can be quickly retrieved from the digital depository, which also checks and assures the award's legitimacy and secure preservation. It strives to realise the goal of providing Digital Academic Awards to every Indian.

Features of NAD

  1. Enables academic institutions to deposit Academic Awards in digital format while maintaining the integrity of the awards.
  2. Enables students to retrieve their lodged Academic Awards at any time.
  3. Enables employers and other persons to verify the authenticity of any Academic Award with the consent of the concerned student.
  4. Maintains the Authenticity, Integrity, and Confidentiality of all Academic Awards.

  1. Globally acknowledged awards that are legitimate under the IT Act of 2000.
  2. Secure award issuance into students' Digi Locker accounts.
  3. Access to millions of digital awards from a single source of truth.
  4. Elimination of the spread of fake certificates.
  5. A consent-based online verification process.
