The Education Department has launched an online facility for verifying the genuineness of Secondary School Leaving Certificates (SSLC) issued since 2001.

Minister for Education P.K. Abdu Rabb who launched the facility here on Wednesday said the data of SSLC certificates of 60 lakh students stored in the Pariksha Bhavan server would be shared with the three arms of the Army, Public Service Commission, Passport Offices, NoRKA, Motor Vehicles Department, and Postal Department, among others.

This would help overcome the delay in certificate verification of job-seekers. — Special Correspondent
