The Online Teacher Pupil Registration Management System (OTPRMS) Certificates would be linked with DigiLocker, according to Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’. Learners will be able to access certificates more easily as a result of this relocation.
Certificates are automatically sent to DigiLocker after they are issued. This service is offered not just to OTPRMS, but also to a number of other organisations such as CBSE and CISCE. Through DigiLocker, the CBSE distributes board exam mark sheets as well as CTET eligibility certificates.
