Duplicate Academic Document System (DADS) launched by CBSE for lost/damaged certificates

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched the Duplicate Academic Document System (DADS) for students to obtain duplicate copies of their academic documents like marksheets, passing certificate, migration certificate which may have been either lost or damaged.

Till now, students had to approach the concerned regional offices or had to apply on a prescribed form and deposit required fees in the banks or alternately send forms and bank drafts by post. But, the Covid-19 situation has made it difficult to follow this process.

As every year, CBSE gets many requests from students for duplicate copies of their academic documents. The board has come up with a quick and viable solution through a recently developed in-house portal. The facility is aimed at reducing the need for the physical presence of the applicant or their parents. They can now obtain duplicate marksheets, passing certificates, and migration certificates using this portal

Students will have to log on to the website https://cbseit.in/cbse/web/dads/home.aspx to apply for the procedure. Students will have an option for both digital copy as well as a printed copy of the academic document to choose from. The regional offices, on receipt of the applications, will print academic documents and dispatch them through speed post. A tracking system will enable the students to trace the status of the application and dispatch details.
