The Regional Transport Office (RTO) of Pune has selected India’s BioEnable Technologies to provide fingerprint technology for driving license registration in the city.
According to the company, the fingerprint scanner can be used for verification, authentication and identification. The system uses a USB fingerprint scanner, digital signature pad and web camera. The USB finger print scanners are manufactured by South Korean firm, Nitgen.
BioEnable says: “The person applying for a driving license needs to be physically present at the registration office. The photograph of the applicant along with his or her signature and impressions of both thumbs is stored in a microchip inserted in the license.”
“Under the national eGovernance plan, all state transport offices need to be computerised to manage vehicle registration and issue driving licenses more efficiently,” says Pradeep Bhatia, MD, BioEnable. “Issuing biometric driving licenses or smart card driving licenses is part of the national eGovernance plan.”
