Guntur, July 3, 2005

System used for registration of beneficiaries under Rajiv Gruhakalpa schemeGuntur became the first district in the State to adopt the iris identification technology in the social welfare sector by implementing it for the registration of beneficiaries under the Rajiv Gruhakalpa Scheme.

The District Collector, G. Jayalakshmi, on Saturday told reporters that within a week of the implementation of the registration of applications incorporating the digital photograph of the beneficiary couple and record of their iris had led to detection of two cases of cheating in the district. While in the first case detected at Mangalagiri last week, the beneficiary, Satyanarayana, applied for two houses in the names of two of his wives; S. Gangabhavani and S. Varalakshmi, his iris data matched while attempting to register for the second time with second wife and the system rejected his application, she said.

"By March, we will deploy similar application for GAIL and expand the applicability to other areas in the State. This is just the beginning of the uptake of biometric technology in the country.
