We have seen over the years that the process of manual attendance has been carried out across almost all educational institutions. The process is not only time consuming but also sometimes inefficient resulting in the false marking of attendance. Today, we need not maintain pen and paper based attendance registers. Following this thought, we have proposed an attendance marking and calculation system which is implemented on Android mobile application integrating biometric scanner that communicates with the database and verification can be achieved. This Android application will give the students information on attendance and change in timetable if any whereas the biometric scanner is used for verification, authentication and to avoid proxy.
