"At the start of the academic year, there is a huge rush of students to obtain various certificates, like of caste, non-creamy layer, and proofs of age, nationality, domicile, and income. This puts tremendous pressure on the administrative system," Kurve said.
Another unique feature to check malpractice
Another unique feature added to certificates is the insertion of the applicant's photograph to check malpractices and curb the role of middlemen, Kurve said.
