The Unique Identification (UID) project will also result in the issuance of smart cards for the citizens of the country once the overall registration of data is completed. Apart from the above-mentioned projects, biometrics is being used as a stand-alone authentication device for various purposes. Biometrics integrated with smart cards offer the advantage of offline authentication. This is an important advantage for remote locations where no proper communication infrastructure is present. In addition, a smart card has the added advantage of being able to store multiple applications for multiple purposes. Thus, a smart card integrated with biometrics can enable physical and logical access while being able to store all necessary data on the card itself. In this manner, individuals can also keep track of their access histories through the aid of a smart card terminal.''
