With this initiative, for the first time in Karnataka, the service of delivering diploma colleges’ mark sheets and certificates to students’ doorsteps through speed post service has been launched.
Girish Babu, In-charge Principal of Karnataka Polytechnic College, Mangaluru and Senior Superintendent Post Offices, Sri, Sriharsha N, IPoS unveiled Project Mangala Logo. For the first time in Karnataka, diploma college mark sheets and diploma degree certificates will now reach students’ doorstep through speed post. Harsha, N, Senior Superintendent of Post offices, Mangaluru, handed over the agreement copy to Girish Babu, the in-charge principal of KPT today.
Department of Posts is already delivering millions of documents viz government documents, Aadhaar card, passport, PAN card, Debit card, ATM card, Cheque book etc. to the doorsteps of people every day since many years, Now it is ready to deliver all kinds of educational documents to the doorsteps through speed post. Presently marks cards of PUC, degree, and final semester certificates are printed and sent to the colleges a few months after students finish college, so it is inevitable that students have to take leave from college or work to collect the certificates. So in this system, students coming from distant places have to spend time and money to get certificates. This new scheme of the Department of Posts will help to overcome this inconvenience for the students.
Features of this service:
These certificate/ mark sheets can be delivered to any city in India through the Speed Post service.
The address to be delivered may be different from the address mentioned in the college at the time of admission
In the absence of a student, any member of their family can receive the certificates.
This certificate/mark sheet will be delivered to the student’s doorstep by speed post within 2 to 5 days.
Students will be informed through SMS at various stages from booking to delivery.
The status of Speed Post articles containing certificates can be tracked on the net.
The Department of Posts has already submitted a proposal to all other PUCs and Higher Education Institutions in Mangaluru and a positive response is expected from these institutions in the coming days.
