NEW DELHI: The Delhi University on Saturday conferred over one lakh students with special degree certificates with prominence given to their mother's name besides heightened 'currency like' security features at the 100th convocation ceremony of the varsity. Clad in traditional Indian attire and newly designed handloom fabric angvastras (stole), the students received the special degree with 17 security features at the centenary year of Delhi University.

"It is a historic moment for me. Getting my degree at the 100th convocation ceremony of the Delhi University is like a dream come true. The security features added in the new degrees is a very good step taken by the university. We don't have to worry about its security or durability," Sandeep Sharma, a PhD holder from DU's History department, told PTI. "It is a special experience. The initiative taken by the Delhi University to secure degree certificates will benefit the students in many ways," added Bhavana Bansal Gupta, a teaching faculty at Miranda House college, who received her PhD degree during the event.

Applauding the changes introduced in the degree certificates, Dhankhar said, "What a monumental event. The degree awarded to the students will have a host of new embellishments. Most impactful being the students mother's name and the student's coloured photograph."
