The purpose AEBAS system is to enable an employee with an Aadhaar Number, to mark his/her attendance in the government offices through Biometric Authentication device.
At present, various Government organisations have deployed proprietary biometric attendance solutions, which lack uniformity in technical architecture due to which these solutions are difficult to scale up and integrate.
