  1. I passed my MCA in 2003 and need transcript to apply MBA in USA, I am currently living in USA and could not travel to India due to my office compliance. It’s really strange that IGNOU is an international university but I did not find any online option to get my transcript from the university without visit in person, I think the IGNOU system need some advancement and provide online submit application system and payment methods for their non native students. it would help a lot. Thanks.

    Just gets copy of your certificates and then send it with DD to IGNOU mailing address. No need to go anywhere or give any money to agents.

After a month time, I posted a message on twitter asking for status of transcript. On 7th of July , I received transcript , hurray! I didnt go to Delhi or called them as there was not need to take follow up. Bottom line is there is not need to worry about or in need to take help of third party to get transcript for you. IGNOU does a very good job. You will get your transcript in 2 months time.

  16. I never thought that getting Transcripts from Indian university will be so easy and hassle free. You can get your IGNOU Transcript with the help of a service provider called NV DOCUMENTATION, DWARKA, if you are not able to visit University. They do all your legwork on behalf of you and will share the receipt with u and after that provide tracking no. In my case I ordered for 1 transcript to Mr. Puneet for WES evaluation and he gave me two transcripts in the same price (no extra charges for other). one he sent to WES canada and second to my local address. I had never heard of NV DOCUMENTATION, DWARKA before, just found them via Google. Just go ahead as Mr Puneet is aware of all the process and intricacies that may happen and would sort out all at his own level

  17. Hello All,
    Would like to give my feedback on the service of N V DOCUMENTATION gave ,its remarkable, I was just struggling to find someone in India to go and do it on my behalf as I am in Dubai. Just got the number from GOOGLE and ping him in Watsup and with little interaction on watsup I made up my mind to give it a try from him, and he just did it in a given time frame. Would like to recommend as he is taking guarantee if it rejects, he will send again with no charges, his confidence level will make make you go with him.
    Thanks Puneet.

  18. When I was applying for Immigration the biggest hurdle which I saw was getting transcripts from IGNOU. I got to know about NV DOCUMENTATION, DWARKA for obtaining transcripts through our consultant (Nationwide immigration services) and I am are very happy with the service provided. My experience was very satisfying and all the staff as well the owner was very courteous. We would definitely recommend as in our case there was 100 percent success rate.

  19. Hello guys,

    1. There is no online submission of forms.
      Currently I have filled the form and sent to IGNOU, NEW DELHI by mail.

      Still waiting for the transcripts.

  25. I don’t need transcripts, my transcripts are send to WES, but they are asking for Attested Certificates, so what is the procedure for it. Which form is need to be fill up. pls guide on this.

    Is IGNOU is not sending the attested Certificates along with Transcript.

  26. I don’t need transcripts, only need attestation of Marksheets and certificate to be submitted to WES. Pls guide on this.

    1. Have you got any leads? I want to apply online or if I can pay online for transcripts.

  27. Hello,

    2. HI. Were you successful in sending the transcript to WES? Are we required to send attested marksheets as well? Can you guide on the process please. Thanks for your response.

    3. Hi Sonia,
      Wanted to check if you have got the consolidated marklist and degree certificated attested by controller of examnations, in addition to the official transcript . As the same was seen as a requirement for WES.If yes, how was it done.

      Please advise.

    5. I got my transcripts from NV DOCUMENTATION. They are service provider with very reasonable charges. Just provide the docs and he’ll take care of everything. Totally professional. I know if I have any similar needs or my friends ask for suggestion for such service I know where I need to come without doubt.

    6. Hi, I contacted NV documentation on WhatsApp and phone ( from his website) He said that he can’t give any receipt for the amount paid to him. I am a bit hesitant to trust a person just from a phone call or whats app.
      Moreover, How Does IGNOU gives transcripts to a third person? Do they take our consent/approval before giving Transcripts to Such 3rd party providers?

    7. I just used services of “NV DOCUMENTATION, DWARKA for getting my IGNOU transcript made. The cost was very nominal (basically I would have spent same amount on cost of petrol if I would have gone there on my own). Moreover service was very prompt and I got my transcript in just 20 days. I was updated at each step via whats app….. Thanks a lot Puneet for your help.

    8. Hi Sonia
      Is Ignou operational. I spoke to NV documents…they said it is closed

    9. Hi Sonia,

      Do they help in getting Ignou authorized transcripts?
      I need my transcripts to be mailed for ny CPA credi evaluation. I have sent all required application and fees but no response from IGNOU.

    10. Yes it is , it is an easy process but you will have to visit IGNOU in Delhi. probably an hour process. you need fill in a form, pay the amount and submit the request. IGNOU does take some time but they WILL deliver the transcripts.
