It is admission season. Very good to very bad institutes are out in the market, telling truth or luring or compelling you. As a student, you must know your rights:

What do you do in the midst of counselling sessions if an institute holds back your original documents after allocating a seat to you (Thus, effectively blocking your chance to attend other admission counselling processes)? How should you reclaim your original certificate right after verification during the counselling and admission procedure?

Don’t deposit your original certificates with any college. The Supreme Court and UGC have ordered that a photocopy of the original certificate is enough. At most, the original can be shown for verification and the photocopy left behind. Depositing original certificates closes your options. The UGC notification says:

“The Commission is of the view that the institutions/universities, by way of retaining the certificate in original, force retention of admitted students which limits the opportunities for the candidates from exercising other options of joining other institutions of their choice. However it would not be permissible for institutions and Universities to retain the School/Institution Leaving Certificate, mark sheet, caste certificate and other documents in original.”

Even if they resist, these are the simple solutions:

Thank you!
