Tata Consultancy Services Limited's (TCS) SmartDEGREE, a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) based solution, enables universities to curb the problem of fake degree certificates and forgery of mark sheets. Using SmartDEGREE, a university can award certificates with an embedded RFID tag that is encoded with the holder's name, date of graduation, type of degree and entire transcript, photograph and biometrics (fingerprints), all digitally signed by the university authorities.
