For security, schools start biometric scan at gates for parents

On Thursday afternoon, Dr Suvidya Ingale and his wife took an hour-long break from their clinic for a visit to their daughter’s school. Not for a PTA meeting or for a school function but to give their thumb-impression for the biometric machine and get their photos clicked. The drive, started for security reasons, is being carried out for parents at all three branches of The Bishop’s School.

Later, in February, the school plans to introduce the same rule for guardians and school-bus drivers too.

The Bishop’s School which has got around 10,000 students in its three branches, will soon have a bio-metric system installed at the main gates.

Similar projects will be implemented by the second week of March at RIMS International School. The project, called RIMS-Connect, has been operational at its Mumbai branch since October 2010. The data collection activity for the Pune branch, that has around 300 students, is already complete. Other security measures taken by the school include 30 CCTV cameras, installed after the German Bakery blast. “The step was taken on the recommendation of police officials,” said Museeb Rais, director, RIMS.
