As part of the “Digital India” Programme, it has been decided to implement common Biometric Attendance System (BAS) in order to modernize the information and other details of the employees, marking of attendance and also to implement the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) and other welfare measures. The BAS system would identify an employee by presenting his/her biometric (finger print/Iris) which will be authenticated online by doing one to one match with the bio-metric stored in the UIDAI data base against the employee’s Aadhaar number. The attendance portal is available at https:/attendance.gov.in.
Other than BAS, the Aadhaar based system is also proposed to be used for many other purposes like:
a) Jeevan Pramaan: To be used by the Pensioners for life certificate. Pensioners need enrol in Jeevan Pramaan i.e. Online Digital Life Certificate system, by visiting any of approved centers where enrolment of Pensioners with a valid Aadhaar card;
b) PAHAL: Aadhaar based transfer of gas subsidy directly into the Bank Accounts of the Citizens/ Beneficiaries;
c) Other beneficiary schemes like Direct Benefit Transfer in MGNREGA, Mother & Child Programs, Scholarships to students, etc;
