Biometric access control systems used to crack on food bank fraud


Tensor Biometric Access Control Readers

Biometric access control systems are being used to crack down on food welfare fraud in India’s food banks and distribution centers, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.

The aim of the scheme is to authenticate customers using their government-issued biometric ID cards to ensure that they are indeed entitled to the food subsidies. The cards effectively link citizens’ biometric data to their government records, and thus can be used to regulate the administration of government services.

The program’s implementation was deemed necessary because, at the moment, there is reportedly an ongoing issue of citizens using fraudulent BPL (‘below poverty line’) cards to get access to subsidized food; linking the food to the biometric ID cards would solve that particular problem.
