  • IAF officers will have direct access to important documents such as Certificate of Service (COS) and Service Book Officer (SBO) through their DigiLocker wallet, enabling convenient retrieval and verification.
  • Within the Indian Air Force, integration with DigiLocker will streamline various processes, including Agniveer Air Recruitment. Digitally verifying the candidate’s educational documents will increase transparency and credibility.
