As per the "Digital India" Program of Government of India, it has been made mandatory for every Government organization to have an Aadhaar enabled biometric attendance system (AEBAS).
There is no doubt that managing employees’ attendance and timings is a complex and utmost important task for any organization. The presence of officials directly/indirectly impacts the productivity and efficiency of organizations. Traditional system used time sheets and rostering process where officials had to mark their attendance in registers manually. The manual mechanism of attendance marking and record keeping proves to be a cumbersome task. Moreover, any discrepancy that might occur because of manual entry or calculation might prove to be tedious for HR personnel in salary calculation.
In recent times, several offices have implemented electronic attendance system, wherein manual entries and records have been replaced by electronic attendance through various credentials such as RFID Card, Fingerprint, Iris Recognition, Voice Recognition, and Palm Vein Reader. Implementation of such standalone systems creates chaos as it cannot collate information across different operational locations. Compilation and monitoring of attendance data would be easily done by having a common biometric attendance system across various Government Offices.
To support the wave of digitization and keep pace with the proposed system of having have Aadhaar enabled biometric attendance system in Government offices many Aadhaar enabled biometric device have been introduced. The system will enable employees to register for attendance by presenting biometric credentials (fingerprint/iris scan). Employees’ attendance will be authenticated online through a one-to-one match of their credentials with those stored in the UIDAI database against their Aadhaar number. This step will ensure punctuality and help maintain attendance records in a better manner.
As Government organizations are operational across different locations in India, central management becomes a major concern. The purpose of having Aadhaar based biometric authentication is to ensure the visibility of all Government employees’ attendance in real-time on the common attendance dashboard at http://attendance.gov.in/.This ensures transparency and accountability among employees to bring efficiency.
With the wave of mandate in attendance marking through Aadhaar authentication among Government organizations, the most common issue faced by the employees is manually entering their Aadhaar number on the device while marking attendance. Having 12 digits, remembering the Aadhaar number becomes difficult. Hence, this process leads to errors and delays in attendance marking.
To combat this issue, Matrix has introduced a more reliable way of marking attendance using a smart card. Matrix offers the first embedded Linux based Aadhaar enabled biometric attendance device registered on AEBAS Server – COSEC VEGA FAXQ. This device marks the attendance of employees through authenticating the Aadhaar number stored in their smart cards. This process provides authentication of the user (employee) in less than 1.5 sec. The additional benefits of having this device are reliability, convenience, speed, and data security.
As it is purposely designed for attendance marking it enhances long term consistent performance and ease in attendance marking. It eliminates the need of manually entering the Aadhaar number, as the device directly reads Aadhaar number from the smart card. Having 3.5’’ TFT Display with Capacitive Touch Panel, it displays user photo during the authentication process.
Language is a barrier in most of the regions. Matrix COSEC VEGA FAXQ – Aadhaar biometric device provides more convenient service by supporting Hindi, English and regional languages as per the request for smooth authentication process. IP65 rating makes it a rugged device. This makes the device withstand exposure to dust and water, which makes it suitable for weatherproof installation. It also has various wired and wireless connectivity options such as Ethernet with PoE, Wi-Fi, and 3G/4G options to connect with the AEBAS server.
When it comes to meeting the requirements of the project, certification plays a significance role. Longer life span of the device is quite important, certifying it as reliable and safe. COSEC VEGA FAXQ holds certifications such as Standard Testing and Quality Certification (STQC), CE, RoHS, BIS, and FCC.
Hence, Aadhaar enabled biometric attendance system proves to be a foolproof Time-Attendance solution for Government organizations. For more details write to More@MatrixComSec.com
