Kawach - Shield Against Malpractices
Explain your idea in details:
With crores of population and residences, India needs a corruption free environment. For that India needs to monitor every illegal activities specially in the most basic development areas of the country like banking, education, traffic, hospitals, hotels, government policies, government departments etc., but there are immense challenges. As in India every person has a unique identification number that is Aadhaar UID. This number is used to identify the person,it contains information of the person like (name,address,dob,gender,mobile number,email, biometrics- fngerprints,retina, face,nationality). We can use this UID information to identify the person anywhere in the country. So we have integrated this Aadhaar UID apis in our android based application called KAWACH. It will identify the person using 3-methods : Demographic method, OTP method and Bio-metrics method. Our app will reduce paperwork as it will identify a person in real time anywhere on a click of button.
