Information Communication Technology (ICT) can integrate all facets of academic business. Though some schools and Universities in India have attempted to digitize some or many parts of their business processes, awarding the final academic credentials/certificates is still paper based. The printed paper certificates is a huge cause of concern for security and reliability, as it gives opportunity to fraudsters to exploit the system and create fabricated certificate, as there is no easy mechanism available to verify and check the authenticity of the certificate. Secondly the present system is not green and environment friendly. This study proposes an Information Communication Technology (ICT) based model for dematerialization of academic certificates for Indian educational system.
