The students can retrieve their mark-sheets, migration certificate, and pass certificate from CBSE's digital academic repository called 'Parinam Manjusha'.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will help Kerala students get their education certificates back in case they might have lost them in the floods through its digital repository, it said on Monday.
CBSE has 1,300 schools in Kerala affiliated to it. The students of these schools can retrieve their mark-sheets, migration certificate, and pass certificate from CBSE's digital academic repository called 'Parinam Manjusha'.
This academic repository has been integrated with DigiLocker, a government storehouse of documents.
"The CBSE will re-send login-id and password of Parinam Manjusha/DigiLocker pertaining to students of the year 2016-2018 on their mobile numbers provided with Class X or XII data," CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi said in a statement.
Students of 2004-2015 will have to visit DigiLocker website and link their Aadhaar to their account and retrieve their documents by entering their names, roll number and year of examination.
"In case any student finds a variation in the document, he/she may contact the CBSE Regional Office in Thiruvananthapuram immediately, giving roll number, name, class and year," the statement said.
In addition to these measures, the board has also extended the deadline for submitting school information at Online Affiliated School Information System (OASIS) for affiliated schools in Kerala, to September 30, 2018.
Meanwhile, thousands left for their once flooded homes in Kerala on Monday, still leaving 342,699 in around 1,000 shelters, as an army of volunteers continued their drive to clean houses that were submerged for days.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said at a review meeting that the relief camps should be kept open for some more days.
Vijayan said in a statement that 1,093 relief shelters were now housing 342,699 flood-hit, down from 1,435 camps and 462,456 inmates on Sunday.
He said adequate stock of food materials and drinking water were available for those in the camps. Directions had been given to use pumps to flush out flood water from water-logged areas.
Of the 2.5 million houses whose power connections snapped after the devastating floods this month, only 56,000 power connections remained to be restored, Vijayan said. He added that this would be done soon.
"Likewise, the burying of carcasses has also been almost completed. Today alone,18,532 small and 3,766 big animal carcasses were disposed of.”
Monday saw more than 17,000 people drawn from various sections of the society engaged in cleaning up of homes. On Tuesday, an army of volunteers would descend on Alappuzha district to spruce up the water-logged Kuttanadu area.
Presently, the maximum number of people still in relief camps are in Ernakulam and Thrissur districts.
