Delhi High Court says both monolingual and bilingual formats of digital degree certificates are valid for admission to universities
Delhi High Court has asked Delhi University (DU) to file an affidavit with respect to specific deadlines for the issue of paper degrees to students who graduated prior to 2019 and those who will graduate in 2020.
The bench of Justice Pratibha M. Singh has also asked the university to specify in its affidavit timelines for the transmission of mark sheets and degree certificates to Digilocker in a phased manner.
The court noted that the digital degree certificates being issued by Delhi University were monolingual, that is, only English, while degree certificates issued previously were bilingual, meaning both English and Hindi.
The court ordered that both formats of online degree certificates, whether monolingual or bilingual, would be valid for candidates to submit to universities in foreign countries, for which purpose the present order could be used.
DU informed the high court that it had received a total of 1,788 applications citing urgent need for degree certificates for admission to foreign and Indian universities and other professional purposes. The university has already issued 1,728 degree certificates.
The matter will come up for further hearing on October 20.
