AEBAS – Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System

The Government of India, as part of the ‘Digital India’ Programme, decided to implement a common Biometric Attendance System (BAS) based on Aadhaar authentication. The system would enable an employee to register attendance by presenting his/her biometric (fingerprint/Iris) which is then authenticated online by performing a one-to-one match with the biometric data stored in the UIDAI database (CIDR) against the employee’s Aadhaar number.

While several government offices had implemented standalone electronic attendance systems where the manual, register entries were replaced by electronic attendance marked through smartcards or biometric systems, these systems did not permit easy sharing of attendance data across various levels of the system. Therefore the Government felt that it would be more appropriate to develop and implement a centralized system for monitoring attendance in various government offices, leveraging the existing identity infrastructure created by Aadhaar, which would then result in reducing cost, improving efficiency and providing scalability.

AEBAS, the Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System is based on Aadhaar Authentication. It is an attendance system with real time monitoring and has comprehensive MIS, as developed by NIC.

Precision has designed & developed biometric attendance devices in line with the defined specifications and these devices have been certified for use for AEBAS. These devices have been accepted on the DGS&D – GEM rate contract and have been deployed in large quantities across various departments and states.
