In this process, during last academic year 2012-2013, government has shared Rs.2100 crores to nearly 29 lakhs students pursuing post matric courses approved by the University/Board. welfare department has automated the process thru Epass portal with data digitalization, submission of applications and renewals for the scholarships.

Proposed Solution
  • POS terminals with STQC certified biometrics and inbuilt digital signature pad are installed at every college for smooth running of Post Metric Scholarship verification process
  • Each college have to login in the device to connect with epass using their respective Login ID, Password given by the department.
  • Respective Student's AADHAAR number have to be entered in the device and thru GPRS connectivity the device gets the details of the student and it will be displayed on the screen.
  • After verifying the details, Digital signature of the Principal and Student are captured on the POS's inbuilt Digital signature pad.
  • Later student keep his finger on the scanner of the POS where his finger print was acquired thru POS and verified through AADHAR/UIDIA server.
  • If the concerned student is the correct person who is eligible for the scholarship then we will get success tab on the device or else we will get failure one.
  • After performing all these steps, total information along with digital signature will be transferred to Epass department.
  • When a farmer comes to the retailer to purchase fertilizers, the beneficiary needs to show the beneficiary card provided to him and the system reads the information provided in the card, asks for the finger- print, authenticates the beneficiary and issues the required items.
  • The same will be updated to the server through GSM/GPRS on real time and can provide print receipts to the customer and retailer. So the retailer can claim the same to the government for the subsidy amount.
