HID Global Helps Streamline Time and Attendance Process


Dental Council of India

The Dental Council of India (DCI) was incorporated under The Dentists Act, 1948 to regulate dental education and the profession throughout India. It is financed by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (India) and through the local state dental councils. The objective around establishing DCI was to: 1) maintain uniform standards for dental education across 290 dental colleges in India; 2) standardize the curriculum for training of dentists, dental hygienists, and dental mechanics; and 3) regulate the level of examinations and qualifications.

HID Global implemented a smart card solution to help DCI with the time and attendance recording of their lecturers. Since college faculty members are very often transferred to different locations, HID’s solution helps authenticate the cardholder’s’ identity using biometrics technologies to avoid malpractice while enabling DCI to monitor the database and centrally record faculty attendance. This new solution replaced the manual attendance record system, saving 50% operational and avoiding the human errors.
