Universities plan to embed smart chips into certificates

Amid an increase in the fake certificate menace, the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) and state universities are planning to embed smart chips into certificates, writes Sameer Khan for The Siasat Daily.

The proposal of smart chips was tabled after many fake certificates came to the limelight in the recent past. A few people are able to create fake certificates despite existing features such as unique code numbers, logos, watermarks and paper thickness.

To address it, both TSCHE and state universities are gearing up to include smart chip features in the academic credentials of students of diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and certificate programmes.
