Dr. Virendra Kumar launches 'PM-DAKSH' Portal and 'PM-DAKSH' Mobile App –  Odisha News Times

BIOCUBE is the worlds first & unique Multifactor and Multimodal AI-based Biometric authentication platform. Through BIOCUBE mobile App, both staffs and trainees get onboarded into skill development program with their unique Bio-ID, ensuring complete data driven traceability.

On 7th Aug 2021, Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, Dr. Virendra Kumar launched PM Daksh Portal and Mobile Application under the Pradhan Mantri Dakshta Aur Kushalta Sampann Hitgrahi (PM-DAKSH) Yojana, to make skill development training programs easily accessible to the target groups of Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and sanitation workers that would foster entrepreneurship culture, ensure economic empowerment of the marginalized section & availability of skilled resources in the nation. According to Mr. R Subrahmanyam, Secretary (IAS) of Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, earlier the entire skill-management system was manual, paper based, which was prone to error, spoofing and the ministry used to have very superficial, unauthentic data on the entire system, based on which government was required to dispense stipend & other benefits to trainees & training centers – This resulted a massive loss to both government and society, as unskilled and non-serious trainees got benefited. In order to make the whole system transparent, traceable, foolproof and absolutely effective, BIOCUBE has developed a Mobile Application for Biometric signature based Trainee Lifecycle monitoring from the time of onboarding till the end of their journey, based on its unique, 100% Made-in-India Biometric-Identity platform.

We are now going to bring in non-invasive biometric Aadhaar based paperless digital attendance mechanism from BIOCUBE.... which will be tamperproof and enhance overall monitoring capabilities of existing system”, mentioned Mr. R. Subrahmanyam.

BIOCUBE solution will allow users (Trainees & Staffs) to do one-time profile & face biometrics registration using their own mobile or a centralized system at the Training Centers, linked with their verified Aadhaar. During daily attendance, the user is authenticated with his face biometrics seamlessly, using the pre-installed desktops with web cams or mobile/tablet devices at the training centers, even without Internet connectivity – No additional hardware like fingerprint scanner etc. is required in the system. Completely digital & automated process brings transparency & tamperproof monitoring in the whole system.

Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, Dr. Virendra Kumar said, “Some of the salient features of PM DAKSH portal include the availability of all information related to skill development at one place for all trainees & staffs, the facility to register with the training institute and for the Program of one's interest, the facility to upload desired documents related to personal information, the facility to register the attendance of trainees through face and eye scanning during the training period and monitoring facility through photo and video clip during training etc.”

BIOCUBE is a Made-in-India, globally unique, Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision enabled SaaS platform, for Self-Service Multi-factor & Multi-modal Biometric authentication on regular smartphones or tablets or cameras. Aligned with the vision of Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, BIOCUBE’s persistent effort is to bring digitization & modernization in system and to enable the progress towards a self-reliant nation ‘Atma-Nirbhar Bharat’, with zero dependency & expenditure on specialized hardware and a smooth, faster rollout.
