Clearly in no mood to offer any let up in getting government officials to turn up for work in time, the Narendra Modi government is all set to install iris scanners alongside fingerprint reading machines in many central government offices just to ensure that no employee is left out of the purview of the Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS).
The move, government officials said, is essentially aimed at ensuring that no government employee escapes marking attendance on the AEBAS just in case some of the wall mounted bio-metric attendance terminals are unable to read their fingerprints. Officials said there had been a some isolated cases where a few of these machines had reported glitches in recognising fingerprints of registered employees.

Since the electronic attendance system has already been linked to Aadhaar, the fingerprints of employees are authenticated online by matching them with the biometrics stored in the UIDAI database against the employees’ Aadhaar number. “Since a scan of the iris is also a part of the biometric data captured by UID to generate the Aadhaar number, iris scans can also be used to mark attendance using the AEBAS,” an official explained.
