The vision of National Academic Depository (NAD) is born out of an initiative to provide an online store house of all academic awards. NAD is a 24X7 online store house of all academic awards viz. certificates, degrees, mark-sheets etc. duly digitised and lodged by academic institutions/ boards/ eligibility assessment bodies. NAD not only ensures easy access to and retrieval of an academic award but also validates and guarantees its authenticity and safe storage.
