Indian biometrics booming

A new report by Frost & Sullivan has found that biometrics is the fastest emerging technology in the Indian securities and identification market and is finding increased traction in various government and non-government applications such as driving licenses, ePassports, land records, as well as time and attendance.

Frost says that biometrics is gradually gaining ground at the expense of conventional methods of identification and security checks such as physical checks, photo IDs, tokens, and passwords.

The Indian Biometric Market report finds that the market earned revenues of INR 5.43 billion from the combined sale of biometric readers and cards in 2009 and estimates this to reach INR 52.55 billion in 2015.

“There is an increasing need to secure people, assets, information, and facilities by managing access control for authorized people,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sagarina Rai. “The Indian biometrics market is receiving a huge boost from large-scale government projects, increasing public awareness, and rising security concerns.”

Owing to India’s large population, identifying oneself in the country is a major hurdle, especially in the rural areas. This has made a solid case for the use of biometrics in the interiors, says Frost.

Furthermore, due to a rapidly rising economy, there has been a spurt in the need for safety and security solutions among organizations dealing with private and confidential data. The escalation in security threats has also spawned a need for authenticated physical access to building premises, creating vast opportunities for biometrics companies.

Despite the market’s potential, the poor awareness, lack of a unified standard for biometric readers, as well as inadequate expertise and investments are restraining the market. India has not yet started manufacturing biometric devices domestically because the sensors have to be imported. Owing to a surfeit of imports, the market is flooded with low-cost, low-quality devices. As these devices often fail to meet quality standards, customers’ confidence in the technology is fast eroding.

P Chidambaram Inaugurates Biometric Attendance Control System

Home Minister P. Chidambaram inaugurated the Biometric AttendanceControl System, which is implemented at the home ministry offices located North Block, Jaisalmer House and Lok Nayak Bhawan. This automated attendance system is aimed at ensuring that employees come to work on time.
Taking the initiative for ensuring punctuality, Chidambaram arrived at 9 a.m. at the North Block and registered his attendance by placing his finger on the scanner.
 

The proposal for the implementation of the biometric scanners had been put forward a few months ago by Chidambaram himself. This idea was given by him after he started noticing that many officials were not even reporting for work, but their attendance had been found. He had also noticed that people were in the habit of leaving office before the scheduled time.

“Under this system, all officials of the ministry will be registering their arrivals in the morning and departure for the day,” said a senior ministry official.
According to a home ministry official, any employee who registers three late arrivals in a month will have a cut in her casual leave.
The employees are expected to reach office at 9 a.m. sharp, and put their index finger on the scanner, which will identify their fingerprint, flash their employee code and name and register their arrival. They will have to go through the same drill when leaving for the day at 5.30 p.m.

Use a Biometric Time Clock For Your Business

For your business, nothing is more important than the proper management of time. When you’re able to accurately measure when your workers clock into work, you can easily distribute payroll and balance the books. It’s a given, then, that a dependable method for recording hours is used to ensure you do not over or underpay your staff, and that you’re able to keep track of employee time in your company. Installing biometric time clock software and hardware is a great step to take in making your business run smoothly.

Why should you use a biometric time clock? A good biometric terminal comes equipped with high-tech software that integrates into your internal systems, and includes features like finger scanning or card reading capabilities for precise records. Depending on the size of your business, you can have one or more terminals installed at a reasonable price, and the benefits will definitely save you money in the long run.

Convenience – Many companies of punch clocks offer different styles for your use. Wall-mount and handheld devices can be installed, and are useful if your employees work off-site. A worker can connect to work via a phone or other device.

Accuracy – The software provided can offer you real-time employee reports for concise payroll records. The biometric technology takes the guesswork out of scheduling.

Stability – Guaranteed hardware and components help eliminate time clock fraud. With fingerprint scans, for example, you can greatly decrease the chance of that happening.

High Level Security Using Biometric – Fingerprint Access Control with Video phone

Biometric based applications guarantee for resolving numerous security hazards. As a method of preserving of privacy and the security of sensitive information, biometrics has been studied and used for the past few decades. Fingerprint is one of the most widely used biometrics. A number of fingerprint verification approaches have been proposed until now. However, fingerprint images acquired using current fingerprint input devices that have small field of view are from just very limited areas of whole fingertips. Therefore, essential information required to distinguish fingerprints could be missed, or extracted falsely. The limited and somewhat distorted information are detected from them, which might reduce the accuracy of fingerprint verification systems. In the systems that verify the identity of two fingerprints using fingerprint features, it is critical to extract the correct feature information. In order to deal with these problems, compensation of imperfect information can be performed using multiple impressions of enrollee’s fingerprints.
