Authorities from a medical college in India penned a proposal for implementing a country-wide biometric verification system for all institutions in the field of medical education, following the discovery of a significant number of impostors in schools.

As a media source reveals, at least three students were in fact substituted by other individuals during entrance exams, which prompted the school to send an official proposal to the country’s general director in charge of medical education.

Should the proposal be accepted and then included in the laws regulating medical education, students will have to go through a biometric verification process throughout their time at the medical colleges, but also during admissions. In this way, any attempts of fraud will be easily avoided.

Tensor’s HSCAN3000 hand scanner system is the most reliable, safe and affordable solution of this type, and it’s also one of the speediest access control systems around, given the fact that it’s capable of checking identities in less than one second, based on the unique size of the users’ hands. This makes it a lot easier and more intuitive to use even than smart cards.

The terminal works by scanning and recording a 3D image of the hand each time the employee punches. The hand’s size and the shape are used to check their identity against the existing database, providing a very good level of accuracy (without actually using any fingerprint scanning in the process).

Tensor’s HSCAN3000 hand scanner terminal employs red and green indicator lights in order to clearly notify the user of a positive or negative match. Additional important features worth mentioning include door control and the ability to connect multiple units at a single site via an Ethernet network connection.
