Pune, October 22, 2020: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today announced a new facial recognition system for students of class X and XII. With the help of the new system, the students will now be able to access their digital academic documents more easily.
The Facial Recognition System (FRS) application matches the image of the human with the image already stored in the database.
With the help of the FRS, the live image of the student can be matched with the photograph of the student on the CBSE admit card already stored in the database. When the process ends successfully, the certificate required by the student will be emailed to them.
The new system will come into effect from this year and the application is available on Digi Locker and Parinaam Manjusha.
Around 12 crore digital documents of the students have been transferred to Digi Locker by the CBSE. The students can now access any certificate or document such as passing or migration certificate and mark sheets.
In an official press statement, CBSE said, “This move will especially help the foreign students in India and those who are not able to access their records and open an account on Digi Locker due to problems like wrong mobile number or Aadhaar card.”
