New Delhi, Feb 29 (UNI) With a view to bring more transparency and efficiency in issuing merit and participation certificates to sportspersons in the country, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has directed all National Sports Federations to embrace technological advancements by releasing the certificates through DigiLocker, a Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology initiative.
“From June 1 this year, only certificates issued by the Federations through Digilocker shall be valid and no physical certificates issued will be recognised for Government and other benefits. We have advised the Federations that their affiliated units must also start issuing the certificates through the DigiLocker from January 1 next year,” said Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Anurag Thakur.
