If you have lost any original marks card or Degree certificate due to fire or any other means, You have to follow the below procedure to obtain the duplicate certificate.

1.Make an Affidavit (Approx Rs 220)

2.Write a complain letter to police station and get it sealed by them.

3.Go to a police station

3. Make a DD for your required certificates.

4.Go to VTU belguam or just mail all the documents through your college to VTU.

5. Receive your duplicate certificate

1. Make an Affidavit (Approx Rs 220)

  • Go to a Civil Court, or to a place where people sit with typewriters on the road. the typists usually can be found around registrar offices, driving licensing offices…
  • Tell the typist that you have lost College certificate and you need Affidavit. He will ask you… where you have lost, when you have lost, how you have lost, USN number, Month & Year of passing, Course, Branch, college.
  • Now, leave the rest to him.  He will ask you to wait and starts typing something on Green colored 20 Rupees Bond paper regarding your loss of certificate.
  • Once the typing is complete, you need to get the Bond paper signed and sealed by a lawyer which the typist will take care of getting signed and sealed by a lawyer.
  • After all this, your Affidavit is ready and the typist will charge you around Rupees 200 for the service.
  • Xerox  your Affidavit

Reference: http://vtu.ac.in/examination-guidelines/

2. Write a complain letter to police station.

You can ask the typist to write a letter for you; for which he will charge some amount, or you can write a letter on your own.

3. Go to a police station.

  • Go to a nearest police station from where you have lost your certificate.
  • Tell them you have lost your certificate and need to apply for duplicate certificate from university. And show them the Affidavit and the complain letter.
  • The police will take your xerox copy of Affidavit, and  will sign/seal your complain letter.
  • Don’t give the original Affidavit to the police.
  • After all, Police might charge you between Rs 100 to 500.

If you have bribed, then report your bribe here: http://www.ipaidabribe.com/reportabribe?t=paid

4. Make a DD.

  • You have to make a DD in the name of  “Finance Officer, VTU, Belgaum”
  • For lost marks card make a DD of rupees 150/- per marks card +50/- per academic year

For lost Duplicate degree Certificate make a DD of rupees 1400/- +100 per year

  • You can make the DD from any reputed banks.
  • If you plan to go to VTU Belgaum, you can make the DD  there.

for latest fee structure, refer: http://www.vtu.ac.in/index.php/examination-fee.html

5. Submit

  • Now put all the documents(DD, Complain letter, Affidavit) in to a A4 Size envelope cover.
  • You can submit in your college.
  • or You can submit going to VTU Belgaum.

I recommend to submit the documents at VTU Belguam and receive your duplicate certificates by 4:30Pm  same day, otherwise you may have to wait forever.

    Hello,

    I just visited VTU last week for my duplicate marks cards and degree certificate. It was quite straight forward process. I had my police ack and notarised affidavit.

    Go to the exam section in VTU and apply for the same at the counter. There is an application for DMC. Fill out each semester’s marks cards date.
    There wwas one helpful official there who worked out the fees as the instructiosn are quite misleading.
    The fees is realy hefty if you passed out a while back. I had to pay Rs.7950 for all marks cards and certificate (passed in 2005). Be prepared with the money and draw a DD from the SBM opposite the VTU building.

    Submitted the documents by 11:30 AM. I recieved all my marks cards and certificate on the same day at 5 PM. All in all, a pain free process at Belgaum except for the money you shell out.

    Thanks again Suresh, your write up on visiting Belgaum was very helpful.

        Thank you so much for the very clear steps mentioned to follow to apply for the duplicate mark cards.

        Its very easy to get duplicate marks card if police complaint and affidavit is present with you.

        Please make DD at VTU campus only. Bcoz fees/fine may vary for different type of work.

        Also have some sufficient cash in pocket since there might be chance of ATM failure inside vtu campus. So you may need to go back to city which is approx5 to 6km for ATM.

    Hello Suresh,

    I noticed in another post that you can get a consolidated marks card by sending the application via email.

    I assume that is not possible for getting duplicate marks card. Is the only way to go direct to VTU?

    Thanks!

      Hi Mathew,

      For duplicate marks cards and degree certificate you have to go VTU Belgaum with the required documents(police FIR, affidavit and copy of your marksheets if you have them). I have provide an account of my visit to VTU above.

      The fees for each marks card depends on the year you passed a particular sem.
      eg. if 2nd sem in 2002; then (fees for each marks cards)*10
      3rd sem in 2002 ; then (fees for each marks cards)*10
      4th sem in 2003; then (fees for each marks cards)*9

      and so on.

      Regards,
      Jeby

    Hey,

    I passed out of dayanand sagar, bangalore in 2011, and i havent received my degree certificate till date. It was to come to my house in mangalore, but i wasnt there – so i havent really signed for it or received it personally.

    I have a couple of questions now
    1. Should i go and claim a duplicate, or will they have my original because i didnt really claim it.
    2. I have all my marks cards, all i will need is my degree certificate, could you tell me what my procedure would be, and how long would it possibly take.
    3. Can i apply for it at the VTU campus in bangalore for the same. And how different a process would it be if i do so, and how long would that take?

    looking forward to a quick reply, as it is important i receive my certificate for immediate requirements.

    Thanks,

    Priya.

      1. They may have the original so its okay to go and check in the VTU
      2. Better go to VTU
      3. You can apply from college or VTU campus(regional office), but if you think you have applied already then better find where is your degree certificate starting from your college. Going to VTU will be easiest and quickest.

          Hi Sush,

          I am not sure what you would need. I assume you may need application form and a signature on the affidavit and police complaint letter.

          This is what VTU says in its website…

          There is provision of issue of duplicate marks cards in cases where the marks cards are lost or mutilated.
          For applying for Duplicate Marks card, an affidavit on Rs.20 stamp paper giving details, such as, USN, Month & Year of passing, Course, Branch, college and how the original marks cards were lost along with a fee of Rs.150/- plus Rs. 50/- per year thereafter payable in the form of a DD drawn in favour of the Finance Officer, VTU Belgaum.
          The candidate has to lodge a complaint to local police station of the area where it was lost and submit the original copy of acknowledgement of complaint along with the above affidavit.
          The candidates who are in need of the same shall forward their applications along with the relevant documents through the office of the Principal, to the office of the Registrar (Evaluation).

    Hello! I am Shashank and a 2013 pass out batch. My 4th sem marks card of a back subject is mutilated when it was being laminated( since the past two years some marks card from vtu are not laminated when you receive them) due to to the heat of the lamination machine. I showed it to my HOD and he said to get a consolidated marks card and then everything will be okay which I did. I have no more backs now and just have to apply for pdc, but da problem is I still have an uneasy feeling about this marks card, when applying for job I suspect the employer will reject seeing the marks card, even though it is mutilated all the details are visible properly. Will getting a pdc clear any doubts to the employer?(even govt and public sector jobs). Please help.

    Hi Suresh,

    I am a 2011 passout and I have to get my 8th sem marks card. I studied in SJBIT and if you already know about that college then you would know that they are money grabbing jerks. They collected 10k apart from the usual college fees as training for placement and now they want 5k because I got placed(This is all extra after paying the college fees).

    1.My query is will it work if I just courier all the documents to VTU,Belgaum?
    2. Will VTU contact my college in anyway as I dont want that to happen?
    3. Apart from all the document costs, will VTU charge anything there if I wish to go personally?

    Sorry to bore you with a such a long query and thanks for sharing the info 🙂

      Hi Shankar,

      Not sure if your question is regarding obtaining duplicates of your lost certificates or just getting your 8th sem marks card? If you go there, ensure you have copies of the lost certificates. General note – take good number of copies of every document you get because it makes the process of getting duplicates also easier in case of any eventuality.
      In my opinion, its always best to go to Belagaum. I have posted my experience of visting VTU last year, please go through that if you are planning on visting VTU.

    It’s very helpful to understand the process i must say.
    I went through all the comments in this section.
    I have one query.
    I am passed student of 2009 batch and applied for my degree certificate during my last year in college . But i never received my degree till date. I was abroad for previous years. Now i am back and willing to collect my degree certificate. Can i go to Belgaum and collect it, is there a chance they may still have it?
    If not do i need to follow your steps for lost certificate?
    I checked with my college and they told me to contact Vtu Belgaum.
    Before going to Belgaum is there a way i can know if Vtu is still keeping my degree?
    I will try contacting them over the phone.
    But not sure if they ll be able to provide any info since is a complicated situation and alot of time has passed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Now i am heading to a foreign university for MBA and they have asked for individual semester marks cards. Can i follow the procedure listed by you here and get individual consolidated marks cards for each semester ? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Suresh,

    I am a 2011 pass out. Unfortunately I lost my 8th semester marks card. I have all the other semester marks cards and also the final degree completion certificate.

    How would I go about getting the duplicate marks card for 8th semester?
    Could you also please confirm if the marks card would mention if it is a duplicate copy.
    Would a duplicate marks card cause any problems in the future?

    Your insight would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Suresh,
    Thank you for posting, I have a problem, I need to apply for a consolidated marks card, but have lost marks cards which are the ones I got after clearing the backlogs, for example I had a backlog in 2nd sem, civil, in 3rd sem I cleared it and got a marks card just for that single subject, and I lost this marks card. So should I apply for a duplicate n then apply for consolidation. Please reply asap
    Thank you

    I am 2002 BE passpot and i have lost the entire 8 sem mark sheet, and hence i am planning to go to VTU this Saturday. Sadly, i learnt today that, SBM opp to VTU is off this weekend (28-Mar) but however the VTU is open, so i have to take the DD outright before i travel to VTU. Can somebody confirm, if my understanding of the charges are correct.

    Year of start: 1998
    Year of Completion: 2002

    A) Per year charges for the mark sheet
    1 – Mar 1999 16 * 50 = 800
    2 – July 1999 16 * 50 = 800
    3 – Jan 2000 15 * 50 = 750
    4 – Aug 2000 15 * 50 = 750
    5 – Feb 2001 14 * 50 = 700
    6 – July 2001 14 * 50 = 700
    7 – Jan 2002 13 * 50 = 650
    8 – July 2002 13 * 50 = 650
    ——————————————–
    Total : 5800

    B) Charges per marksheet
    No. of markscard * charges
    8 * 150 = 1200

    Total A + B = 7000

    Dear Suresh,

    Thank you for helping all. You are doing a great service.

    I also need some help from you regarding my duplicate certificate.

    I lost my original certificate in May 2010. I went to police station took the FIR that was on 24 May 2010, then I went to the university and issued a duplicate certificate. On the Duplicate certificate the date is 7 January 2010 which is 5 months prior date. I asked the certificate issuer that why it has a wrong date.
    He said this is the format of VTU there is nothing wrong with it.

    Now after 5 years, I am in Saudi Arabia. I need to do Saudi Embassy attestation for my certificate. The saudi embassy is asking for FiR. So I am worried that the Certificate has a prior date than the FiR’s date.

    I am not sure what to do.

    Hey Suresh and all VTU patrons.
    I cleared my first semester in dec-Jan 2007 2008.
    My confusion is about the fees to get a duplicate for that.
    It’s confusing.
    Do I have to pay Rs150+(50*8)= RS550.
    Am I right?
    I also want to know if I can send the application by post with all relevant documents and if yes, to what address..
    Looking forward for the reply with the info.
    Thanks in advance.
    Peace.

    Hi Suresh,

    Thank you so much for the very clear steps mentioned to follow to apply for the duplicate mark cards. I followed the same steps & got my duplicate mark cards but with a bitter experience at VTU, Belgaum. I certainly don’t want to discourage others who want to apply for their duplicate mark cards but to caution them while dealing with the bossy natured faculty at VTU.

    I am a Software Professional in the industry for last 10 years & currently in abroad since last 6 years. I came to India recently just to get my duplicate mark sheets as I lost my originals. I got the affidavit done, FIR lodged & DD taken (Rs 9700 for 8 sems mark sheets, degree certificate, 2 transcripts), filled the application forms & submitted to one of the clerks at VTU (2nd floor, exam section). The clerk was very helpful in guiding me through & I submitted all of the required documents & DDs at around 12pm & I was asked to come at 4pm to collect the mark sheets on same day Monday (30/11/2015). Since I had to attend a family function that day I requested him to hold my mark sheets till Wednesday (02/12/2015). The clerk agreed to it & I left.

    I came back on wednesday & asked for my mark sheets to one of the other clerks there as the clerk who served me earlier was on leave. Clerk asked me for the day when I submitted my documents to which I answered Monday (30/11). He took no time or bothered to check & bluntly informed me that the mark sheets have been sent to the college through post. I politely told him that I had requested to hold on to my mark sheets & will be back today to collect the same. PLEASE NOTICE that if someone counters any clerks here they have a habit of taking the people to their bosses sitting in the adjacent cabins. I have noticed 2 such instances on Monday when I was here to submit the request. This clerk did the same & took me to a GENTLEMAN called Dr. Ravindra Malagi. I was asked to explain what’s the matter. I politely explained him the situation addressing him as SIR. He started with the same blunt answer saying the VTU policy is to send the mark sheets to the colleges if not collected by the candidate on the same day of request. I politely asked of why the clerk accepted my request to keep the mark sheets with him. I’ll be trouble as I have to catch my flight next day. This didn’t go well with Dr. Malagi as they don’t like the students/ex-students asking them the questions. Dr. Malagi literally says “OK, you keep shouting… I can’t help”. I still kept my cool & said that “Sir, you cannot use such words(shout) as I am politely & respectfully explaining you the situation”. When he continued with the same tone, that is when I had to say that “Mr, you are shouting as well… Please give respect as I am an alumni of this university & in a very good post as you are in.” I also said that “I have seen this bossy nature from the Day 1 here as the freshers or just passed out students cannot even question you. Do you think it’s a Government office?”.

    Dr. Malagi asked me to get out & my only answer was I didn’t come inside on my own. It was your clerk who took me inside your cabin instead of clarifying it himself.

    After all this drama, clerk asked me to wait outside for 10 minutes & he will check if the mark sheets are still there with them. He calls me back in 3 minutes (only task done so quick) & gives me my duplicate marksheets. With all humility I asked clerk that “should you have done this before, this drama wouldn’t have happened”. Dr. Malagi in an embarassed tone asks the clerk to “give him the marksheets & don’t talk anything”.

    I paid hefty amount to get my mark sheets & on top of it I had to face this humiliation.

    Only suggestion to the people working especially in educational institutions must understand that Human relation is the most important & he basic thing they need to learn as these are the institutions which builds the future architects of the world. Bossism, ego can’t be tolerated by the current younger generation. They will keep questioning!!!

    Dear Suresh,

    I have lost my bachelors degree and have begun the process of obtaining a new one as per the instructions on this page.
    I have got the original police complaint letter signed and sealed by the local police authorities.
    Is this enough or will I need to produce a separate acknowledgement slip at the vtu office??

    Your quick response will be greatly appreciated.

      150+(50*3)=Rs. 300
      But, better go to their office in VTU and ask for exact amount. There’s an SBI bank in the campus from where you can take a DD

      I would suggest going to VTU in person. The office faculty there are very careless as I’m not sure how many days they might take or might misplace the documents. Go there in person and check for exact amount (ideally it should be 150+(2016- year of sem)*50)=approx 500+ per marksheet). There is an SBI bank in campus for taking the DD

    HI.

    I’m a 2016 graduate and as such require my PDC to join Infosys. Unfortunately, VTU is no longer issuing PDC’s according to their latest circular. Will duplicate PDC work? The option is still available on their online payment portal so if I pay for a duplicate PDC online, will they send it by post?
