The Government of India is keen on making it easier for the students to keep their important documents safely, under the initiative of ‘Digital India’.
DigiLocker provides a personal storage space in the cloud to Indian citizens. Organizations that are registered with DigiLocker can push electronic copies of documents and certificates (e.g. driving license, Voter ID, School certificates) directly into citizens’ lockers. Citizens can also upload scanned copies of their legacy documents in their accounts. These legacy documents can be electronically signed using the eSign facility provided in DigiLocker.
A citizen can share these electronic certificates online with various agencies while applying for the services provided by them.
