  P L Dharma, registrar (evaluation), said the process of introducing QR codes was taken up internally, and not outsourced to any agency. MU is the first to adopt QR coding among state universities, and so far 1.3 lakh QR coded marks cards of recently concluded semester examinations have been issued, he said. 

  “In the first phase, marks cards with QR codes were rolled out to undergraduates. The annual convocation will be held on April 16 and the certificates issued will also have QR codes. Already, QR codes for UPI payments are popular. Hence, during a brainstorming session, we decided to incorporate QR codes that will have details of a candidate, including photo, college name, year of passing, subjects details and so on. The advantage of this technology is that certificates cannot be faked, and helps employers with instant verification. The QR coded certificates are secure, and cannot be tampered with easily,” he said. 

  Dharma said the verification procedure earlier was time-consuming. It took more than a week. The instant verification will help candidates seeking admission to foreign universities. Vice-chancellor P S Yadapadithaya said that the QR code is available at any moment for verification.
