Records management is maintaining records, including classifying, storing, securing, and preserving, which protects fragile historical records and assures permanent records are accessible and available to comprehend and to be examined by students and scholars for years in the future. Records and document management are the essential pillars of the nation’s intellectual consciousness. Despite all the measures that the Government of India has taken to preserve such archives of National importance, they are not yielding fruitful results because of the lack of awareness in the contemporary youth to keep things in order. Keeping this in mind, we must take a step towards developing such courses which bring awareness for the same. Therefore, we propose this six-month program for a certificate course entitled “Records and Documents Management.” With the induction of this course, we could expect some change for the betterment in this direction.
