Hyderabad: Very soon, you don’t have to visit RTA office for renewing licences or report address change as Telangana Transport Department is going to use liveness detection solution. This will weed out the need for citizens to physically visit the transport office.
Hyderabad-based Syntizen Technologies has bagged the tender for ‘Liveness Detection Software Solution’ for Friendly Electronic Services in Transport Department (FEST), Telangana. Telangana State Technology Services (TSTS), which had floated the tender for FEST, evaluated the company’s solution and awarded the contract as its official supplier. The flagship initiative has been launched by Syntizen in association with its Geneva-based technology partner TECH5, which will provide artificial intelligence-driven algorithm, and has made FEST the first State government department to deploy a face liveliness detection solution in India.
Speaking on the development, Vamsi Kotte, CEO and co-founder Syntizen Technologies said, “Syntizen ventured into Facial Authentication & Liveness Detection Solutions a couple of months ago and we are extremely overwhelmed to receive the tender from TSTS. It will weed out the need for citizens to physically visit the transport office as they will soon be able to avail various RTA department’s services directly from their handsets via an app.”
The solution will help cater to 10-15 services (other than vehicle registration) of the department including licence renewals, RC Book renewals, cab permits and address change etc. While the solution from Syntizen is ready, the department is soon going to roll out the app, informed Siddharth Kukatlapalli, co-founder, Syntizen Technologies.
Syntizen offers digital identification products including ABAS (Aadhaar-based Attendance System), edo Suite (Aadhaar masking solution), and Aadhaar Core Engine (for KYC, authentication, and subsidy management) alongside others.
Machiel van der Harst, CEO and co-founder, TECH5, said, “We recognised Syntizen early on as an innovation-driven provider of authentication services and the ideal partner for TECH5, combining our top-tier Biometrics and Liveness Detection technologies with solid operational capabilities and services offerings to key customers in India.”
