The Centre for Research and Industrial Staff Performance (CRISP), based in Madhya Pradesh, has partnered with the School Education Board of Haryana to introduce blockchain technology for issuing digital certificates to 500,000 students.
CRISP, using its self-developed blockchain technology, will provide digital certificate printing and online verification services to the Haryana School Education Board.
The agreement between CRISP and the School Education Board of Haryana was officially sealed on June 22 in the presence of Dr. VP Yadav, Chairman of BSEH, and Amol Vaidya, Director of CRISP.
This is the first time such advanced technology has been used by any secondary education board. The purpose of implementing blockchain-based authentication is to prevent fraudulent activities, particularly identity theft, and ensure accurate certification of students.
Shrikant Patil, the Managing Director of CRISP, expressed excitement for this pioneering initiative and emphasized the organization’s commitment to using technology for the benefit of students.
Patil also highlighted CRISP’s achievements in information technology and e-governance. With their coveted Capability Maturity Integration Level 5 certification, CRISP is recognized for excellence in the IT sector.
Amol Vaidya, the Director of CRISP, explained the primary objective of the blockchain-based authentication system. It aims to provide authentic records and eliminate any doubts about the credibility of certificates issued by the BSE Haryana. This innovative solution establishes trust and transparency by verifying candidate data through a decentralized mechanism.
With 27 years of experience in training, research, and skill development, CRISP continues to push the boundaries of technological advancement.
