Why I have to store my certificates in DigiLocker ?

  • There are two types of documents such as Digital Documents & Uploaded Documents. Digital documents are verified by the respective department where others are uploaded documents.
  • Once you upload your document, the documents will be verified by the concerned authority. After completing that authentication an URL will be generated for the document.
  • So in future whenever you need to share your documents to any government office, you can just share the URL.
DigiLocker is still beta, so all of its features are not reveled yet. Anyway time to create your own DigiLocker & upload your documents.
