The present research conceives a concept that the entire educational documents should be digitalized. This idea is in collaboration with the Indian government idea of digital India. Because if the education credentials can be digitalized like banking credential and other things, then obviously there will be the much-reduced scope of using paper, first of all, secondly from the environment friendly purpose we can use this idea too.
This is mainly intended for the public sector in order to reduce the burden of paper credentials from the students as well as form the administrator and all the data will be digitalized. For an instance, if we need a data of a particular person who had passed out to say 30 to 40 years back, we can easily use the Permanent Education Number (PEN - proposed) of the particular person to fetch the data. It will be very much beneficial for the country like India where we have a huge mass of students who pass out each year from different institution and universities.
The main advantage of the idea is reducing fraud, increase the lifespan of data, reduced paperwork, saving the environment, which in turn will reduce the pollution.
