Government of Maharashtra becomes the fourth government entity in the world to implement the world's largest blockchain-powered educational credentialing system by issuing nearly 1 million tamper-proof diploma certificates.

The state government achieved this with the help of a blockchain-based startup, LegitDoc, which is helping the Government of Maharashtra to implement the world's largest blockchain-powered educational documents registry.

Bangalore-based LegitDoc, owned by Crossforge Solutions Pvt. Ltd., is a unique SaaS-based platform that leverages a combination of Ethereum blockchain and cryptographic techniques. It facilitates issuance and verification of around 1 million digital diploma certificates for students of Maharashtra State Board of Skill Development Examination (MSBSD) across 8 academic years. These digital certificates can be instantly verified from anywhere around the world.

Besides by Maharashtra, only three government entities have implemented full-scale blockchain-based educational document registry and these are -- the Government of Malta, the Government of Singapore and the Government of Bahrain. Now, the Government of Maharashtra becomes only the 4th government entity in the world to achieve this remarkable feat at a never-seen-before scale.

The patent-pending solution provided by Legitdoc, a Hyderabad's T-Hub incubated startup, provides each student a "certficate_LegitDoc.zip" digital file containing the original PDF diploma certificate, issued by MSBSD, and its corresponding blockchain proof file generated by the LegitDoc software. Students can share their respective "certficate_LegitDoc.zip" files with anyone who wishes to verify them, such as employers, universities, etc. and prove their legitimacy.
