Degree Verification via the National Academic Database (NAD)

The NAD provides a mechanism to employers, academic institutions and any other organizations to verify students’ academic records available on NAD through an API interface. The organizations that wish to verify academic records of the students using this interface must apply online using the link:

The application will be approved upon verification. The verifier organization can then get the necessary credentials to access the API by signing in into account on:  

Verifying organizations are required to obtain and provide the consent of the student before accessing any academic record. When the verifying organisation requests verification of a certificate, DigiLocker NAD will notify the student through email or SMS using registered information of the student.

Currently, only verifying organizations in India will be able to use this system since the telephone number field for an OTP accepts only 10 digits leaving no room for a country code. We have raised this with the NAD since it is an inconvenient restriction.
