CHANDIGARH: Chetan Kaushik, Mahesh Jindal, Rohit Gupta, Hritik Wadhwa, Yashasvi, Madhur Gupta – Team “Gully Gang” students of Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chitkara University, Punjab, won the First Prize of Rs. 50,000 in Smart India Hackathon-2019, recently concluded at Coimbatore. Their project titled “Trustee” was based on proposing a solution for storing school/university/board certificates in a decentralized way using Block chain Technology, and to give access to any organisation or any institution with the consent of an individual using multi-sign. The main motive of this project was to reduce the hassle of verifying the authenticity of any document or certificate by simplifying the process and reduce the time required to a matter of seconds. Congratulations to the winning team!

 

Smart India Hackathon, an initiative by MHRD Innovation Cell at the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi, was a non-stop 36-hour software product development competition, where problem statements are modeled to technical students for innovative solutions. The initiative is perceived as a building block for ‘Start-up India’ campaign, crowd source solutions for improving quality of life, and providing an opportunity for the people to provide innovative solutions for problems faced by our country. Chitkara University had been selected as one of the 48 Nodal Centres for the grand finale, which saw the most innovative students from all over India competing for the final prize.
