The Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU), situated in Nashik, is the first university in the state to provide its graduates with degree certificates that include a QR code based on blockchain technology.
"We are the first in Maharashtra state to use the technology that cannot be tampered with."

According to Sanjeev Sonawane, VC, YCMOU, "This is the most secure way to make sure there is no duplication of certificates or even generation of fake certificates."
It is a known and well-acknowledged technique. Through a mobile application, students may obtain their certificates," stated university administrators.
At the university's convocation event, which took place recently, more than 1.55 lakh graduates received their certificates of achievement.
"The students may simply click "download" to obtain their certificates after logging in with their credentials.
If verification is needed, the concerned can also click to validate the QR code; this procedure takes only a few seconds as opposed to the previous physical approach, which takes many weeks, according to Patil.
