UIDAI to introduce face recognition feature for Aadhaar


New Delhi, Jan 15: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Monday decided to enable Face Authentication in fusion mode on registered devices for the people facing difficulty in other forms of biometric authentication such as fingerprint and Iris scanning. 

“This facility is going to help in inclusive authentication of those who are not able to biometrically authenticate due to their worn out fingerprints, old age or hard work conditions, USDA said.

As face recognition would be used only in “fusion mode”, it would be valid only when used along with one more authentication feature, which are fingerprint or iris or one-time password (OTP).
