Biometrics for school registration & canteen now in India

A school in Hyderabad have introduced biometrics for registration and canteen monitoring for both students and teachers. Privacy groups may pick up on this in India and scrap the systems as they did in Hong Kong and China, we'll just have to see.
And in just three weeks since it was introduced, fewer children and even teachers are bunking class.

Biometrics is NOT what causes possibly privacy or civil liberty concerns in society. Biometrics is simply a method of identifying a person. A fingerprint alone tells absolutely nothing about that person. The real privacy issue are the large amounts of databases (your bank account, accounts of shopping sites like Amazon, government records, etc..) that actually contain information that one would want to remain private. Biometrics simply adds another level of security so that hopefully, the wrong person can't gain access to that wealth information.I am a representative of an established research based biometric firm named M2SYS Technology http://www.m2sys.com/ based in Atlanta Georgia. We have provided our fingerprint scanners to numerous schools and agencies starting from medium to large across various countries, who are now making a very fast and reliable client record service through integrating our secured fingerprint identification system in their software. Our’s is a patent-pending fingerprint software solution that can be instantly integrated with a host application, avoiding development burdens associated with a fingerprint SDK. I believe to keep up with speed of service and tracking students in an efficient way, finger print scanners are one of the best solutions.
