S Parasuraman, the Director of the reputed institute said that there are some students who receive monetary assistance from the government as well as the institute. As the grant from the government is usually sent to the personal bank account of the respective students, the college does not have any knowledge about it. The students do not come up with the information and so, the institute remains in darkness. Once the college is provided with the Aadhar details of all the students, getting the details about the transfer of the funds will be easily available to the authority.
The authority of the college said that they had already taken the decision of starting the attendance recording process via biometric of students from the last sessions. But they were stopped from the implementation of this advanced process by the student union bodies. This time, the authority is adamant that they will implement the biometric attendance method. They have also said in the circular that, any student of 3rd semester who has already registered will have to get their biometrics scanned and recorded in the institute system. This will have to be done within 48 hours. if any student refuses to follow these rules will not be allowed to continue the course in which they have enrolled.

The candidates will only be allowed to take part in the curriculum if they go through all the steps of verification. With all these rules in place, the institute authority is expecting to streamline the database of the students.
