Android Registration Client

Android Registration Client (ARC) is a tablet application that serves as portable version of the existing desktop Registration Client. It can be accessed through Android devices and also meets mobility requirements of countries adopting MOSIP Identity.

The primary objective of the tablet version is to facilitate the registration process for residents who are not able to physically visit Registration centers and also serve remote locations where setting up Registration center is not feasible. To address this challenge, the ARC was developed enabling Operators / Supervisors to easily access the remote areas and maximize resident registrations across the country.

This guide serves as a tool to demonstrate the impressive capabilities of MOSIP's system. Additionally, the primary user of this guide will be the Operator / Supervisor trying to register individuals for generating UIN.

Let's embark on this journey together to explore the potential of ARC.

For developers setting up ARC locally, refer Developers Guide.


  • Reliable and consistent Internet connectivity

  • Tablets running Android version 10 to 13

  • Tablets with a minimum of 4 GB RAM

  • The tablets should be capable of capturing fingerprints, IRIS, and face (photo) biometrics. Additionally, they should also have the ability to scan documents. However, if the tablets do not support these capabilities, MOCK SBI can be used as an alternative.

    Note: For Mock MDS, click here to download the Mock MDS in your system folder, which will enable you to simulate biometric capture (without real biometric devices).
