BioEnable to supply USB fingerprint sensors for biometric drivers’ licenses in Pune, India


BioEnable has announced that it has been selected by the Regional Transport office of Pune, India to supply biometric fingerprint scanners for drivers’ license registrations.

Specifically, says the company, at Pune TRO registration centres USB fingerprint scanners from BioEnable will now be used along with digital signature pads and webcams for the digital and biometric registration of drivers. Biometric data will be stored on a microchip embedded inside the drivers’ license itself.

The particular USB fingerprint scanners that BioEnable will supply have been manufactured by Nitgen, a Korean company.

“The product is a combination of superior quality and cost efficiency that helps to modernize the market of finger scanner,” Pradeep Bhatia, Managing Director of BioEnable said. “Under National e-Governance Plan all state transport offices needs to be computerised for managing the vehicle registration and issuing driving licence more efficiently, issuing Biometric Driving License or Smart Card Driving License is a part of National e-Governance Plan.”

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, BioEnable’s DactyScan84c ten-fingerprint scanner was recently awarded the STQC certification for the Aadhaar project in India.  

In November, the company’s eNbioScan-C1 single-finger scanner was also awarded STQC certification for use in the Aadhaar project.
