User Guide

This user guide is designed to provide assistance to Operators and Supervisors in successfully installing, running, and registering applicants to obtain their Unique Identification Numbers (UIN) on tablet devices.

Prerequisites

  • Reliable and consistent Internet connectivity.

  • Tablets running Android version 10 to 13.

  • Tablets with a minimum of 4 GB RAM.

  • The tablets need to 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.

New Registration

To begin the Registration process, the Operator is required to follow the steps outlined below.

  1. Click on New Registration card.

  2. Select the language to be used for data entry, which will be used to collect the resident's information. There will be a default language for data entry.

  3. Choose the language in which the notification will be sent to the resident. Click Submit to proceed.

  1. The operator will be redirected to the Consent page, where the resident must agree to the terms and conditions in order to proceed.

  2. After accepting consent, the Operator will need to fill out the demographic data of the resident, including their name, age, date of birth, and address. Once all mandatory fields are completed, the Continue button will be enabled.

  1. Upon clicking the Continue button, the Operator will be navigated to the Document upload page where they will need to:

    • Select the type of document (e.g. proof of identity, proof of address) from the drop-down menu.

    • Enter the Reference Number of the document.

  1. Upload the document by clicking on the Scan button to open the camera. The Operator can take a picture of the document and then choose from the following actions:

    • Cancel: Clicking on the "Cross" icon will remove the captured image and return the Operator to the previous screen.

    • Crop: The Operator can drag from the four corners of the captured image to crop it as needed.

    • Save: Clicking on the "Save" button will save the captured image and return the Operator to the previous Document Upload page.

    • Retake: Clicking on the "Retake" button will remove the captured image, reopen the camera, and allow the Operator to take a new photo.

  1. After ensuring all required information has been accurately entered in the Document Upload screen, the Operator can proceed by clicking on the Continue button to access the Biometric Capture page. Here, the Operator can capture the biometric data of the Resident, including a face photo, fingerprint, and iris scan.

Face photo capture process

  • For capturing the face photo, the Operator should click on the Scan button to activate the camera and take a picture.

  • The image quality will be displayed on the screen and must meet a certain threshold to be considered acceptable.

  • The Operator has three attempts to capture the biometric image.

  • It is important to note that no exceptions can be made for the face photo biometric capture process.

Biometric Data capture process:

  • In order to capture biometric data, the Operator should click on the Scan button.

  • This will allow the Operator to capture the biometric information.

  • Once the data is captured, the image quality will be displayed on the screen and must meet the acceptable threshold limit.

Note: Three attempts are provided to capture the biometric data.

Fingerprint Capture Process:

In the event that a thumb is missing or experiencing difficulties that prevent its fingerprint from being captured, the Operator is authorized to indicate an exception. To mark an exception, the operator must select the affected thumb and specify the type of exception as either Temporary or Permanent. Additionally, the operator may include any relevant additional comments.

Iris Scanning Process:

  • To initiate the Iris scan, the Operator is required to click on the Scan button.

  • This action will allow the Operator to capture the Iris image.

  • Once the Iris has been successfully captured, the quality of the image will be displayed on the screen.

  • It is essential for the quality score to meet the established threshold limit.

  • The Operator has three opportunities to capture the biometric data.

If one or both of the Irises are not detected or encounter issues that prevent successful capture, the Operator has the option to mark an exception. To do so, the Operator must identify the specific Iris that is problematic and indicate the type of exception- either Temporary or Permanent. Additionally, the Operator may provide any relevant comments.

  1. After all the biometric data has been properly captured or any exceptions have been noted, the Continue button will be activated. The Operator can then proceed by clicking on the Continue button, which will redirect them to the Preview page. The Preview page will display the following information:

  • Application ID

  • Timestamp of Registration

  • Demographic data collected

  • Documents submitted

  • Biometric data recorded

From the Preview page, the Operator has the ability to navigate back to previous screens in order to make any necessary adjustments to the entered or captured data. Once the Operator has verified the accuracy of the entered data, they can proceed by clicking on the Continue button, which will direct them to the Operator Authentication page.

  1. On the Operator Authentication page, operators are required to input their credentials (username and password) that were used during the login process.

Upon successful verification of the credentials, the packet will be uploaded to the server and the operator will be redirected to the Acknowledgment screen. This screen includes the following information:

  • Application ID

  • Timestamp of Registration

  • Demographic data captured

  • Documents uploaded

  • Biometric data captured

  • Print option

  • QR code for the Application ID

  • Option to initiate a new registration process.

Upon receipt of the acknowledgement, the packet is uploaded to the Registration Processor. Once the packet has been successfully processed, a unique identification number (UIN) is generated.

On the acknowledgement page, the operator will have two options available:

  1. Print- The operator can click on this option to obtain a physical copy of the acknowledgement.

  2. New Registration- The operator can initiate another registration by clicking on this option.

In summary, the aforementioned steps can be followed by the user (Operator/ Supervisor) to register an individual by capturing demographic data, documents, and biometric data in order to generate their UIN.
