NAD is an online storage of academic awards like degrees, diploma, certificates, mark–sheets etc. lodged by the academic institutions, boards, eligibility assessment bodies in a digital format. NAD comprises of two digital depositories namely NSDL Database Management Limited (NDML) and CDSL Ventures Limited (CVL) which keep the academic awards in the digital format and ensure data integrity. NAD has become a very significant process since 2016 and more than thousand institutes have already signed Service Level Agreement (SLA) and have uploaded their data.

The followings are the actions taken to attain the objectives of NAD:-

1. Designate Nodal Officers and set up a dedicated NAD cell for implementation of NAD and reflect their details on respective website.

2. Advise their students to register on NAD website.

3. Reach out to those students whose awards are already uploaded on NAD, to start using NAD services for accessing their academic awards.

4. NAD-ID should be made a compulsory field in the admission and examination forms of the academic institutions.

5. The email addresses and mobile numbers of the students should be provided by the Academic institutions to the depositories for automatic creation of NAD IDs.

Further, UGC have requested all the institutions to kindly upload the legacy and fresh data before December 31, 2019.
