Poonch School is the first in India to use biometric attendance

To increase accountability in the attendance system and boost the school’s overall attendance rate, administrators at the Government Model Higher Secondary School, Saujiyan in Poonch’s Mandi tehsil have implemented a novel biometric attendance system for its kids.

In addition to the existing staff attendance system, the school has implemented a biometric attendance system.


Anwar Khan, the school’s principal, called it a “unique” decision made during a recent meeting of the school’s administration.

The school’s biometric attendance system is already fully implemented, covering all faculty and staff members. We’ve implemented this attendance tracking system for the pupils as of late,” he said.

According to Khan, the attendance system tracks 275 kids from ninth to twelfth grade twice a day, in the morning and in the afternoon.

He continued, “After the successful introduction of this attendance process, we will also link phone numbers of the parents of the students with this online biometric system so that parents remain aware about the daily attendance of students and get instant information if their student is absent from school on any given day.”

Khan also promised to provide parents with a PDF file detailing their children’s attendance for each month.

Ruksana Koser, a senior at the school, praised the institution for using a biometric attendance system.

She claimed it would guarantee that no communication gaps would develop between pupils and their parents about their attendance or nonattendance at school.
