This degree certificates, post-graduation certificates and engineering marks cards - whatever comes under the Higher Education Department
The Karnataka Higher Education Department has promised to make special arrangements for those who have lost their academic documents in the floods in Kodagu and help them get duplicate degree certificates and mark sheets.
This comes after the Ministry for External Affairs promised to help the Kerala flood victims who have lost their passports by issuing them the documents free of cost.
Higher Education Minister G T Devegowda has instructed all state universities and the Department of Collegiate Education to take measures in this regard. He said, "Many have lost their marks cards, degree certificates and other academic documents. We have decided to set up a system where they will get all the lost certificates in one place."
He said that universities and colleges are to forward the requests for certificates and process it within 10 days. This applies to degree certificates, post-graduation certificates and engineering marks cards - whatever comes under the Higher Education Department.
