Biometric Attendance System Implementation Delayed in Uttar Pradesh Colleges

The introduction of a biometric attendance system in Uttar Pradesh’s colleges for students, teaching, and non-teaching staff has faced delays, missing the deadline for machine installation. The Joint Director of Higher Education, K.C. Verma, has instructed principals of government and aided colleges to ensure the implementation of the biometric system within a week.

Despite these directives, none of the colleges has initiated the biometric attendance recording. The system aims to digitally record fingerprints, marking individuals present with a timestamp. Principals who fail to comply with the order will be held responsible, according to Verma’s statement.
