The CBSE will open the DigiLockers for all students and upload their rectified registration cards online by May 15.

CBSE is all set to open DigiLocker accounts for all students of class 9 and 11 from its affiliated schools and secure their registration cards in the digital depository. So far, the marksheets of class 10 and class 12 students were stored in the accounts of the concerned students. A registration card of class 9 and class 11 students contains vital information like the student’s name, chosen subjects, date of birth, etc. The stored information is then used for the following year's board exams.

The information mentioned in the registration card help CBSE prepare well in advance for the board examination as it gives a clear idea about the number of students appearing for the examination, for which their details and subjects are needed to be printed on the marksheets. The details mentioned on the registration card will also help student validate their details in advance and get rectifications done on time in case of any error like spelling errors. With an ample amount of time, the Board will be able to rectify the mistakes and generate error-free marksheets.  

February 5, 2020, onwards, schools will be able to download the registration cards from the CBSE portal. After verifying the details mentioned on the registration cards, both students and their parents have to sign the cards. In case of any error, a rectification application will be routed via school to the Board. The CBSE will open the DigiLockers for all students and upload their rectified registration cards online by May 15.
