NSP Biometric Authentication Process for Students

The procedure for Biometric Authentication of applicants through the NSP involves several steps to verify the identity of scholarship applicants effectively:

1. CSC VLE Camps: CSC (Common Service Centre) VLEs play a pivotal role in this process. They conduct camps within educational institutions to facilitate the biometric authentication of re-validated applicants.

2. Applicant Reporting: Applicants must present themselves to the CSC VLEs during these camps. They need to bring their Aadhaar number and NSP user ID for the biometric authentication process.

3. Validation of Information: CSC VLEs are responsible for validating the information provided by the applicants through the NSP biometric authentication utility.

4. Matching with NSP Database: If the information supplied by the applicants matches an entry in the NSP database, the details of the applicants are returned to the NSP-BA utility. These details are then shown to the applicants for confirmation.

5. Live Photograph: After confirmation, the CSC VLE takes a live photograph of the applicants. This step adds an additional layer of security and verification.

6. Biometric Authentication: The CSC VLE then proceeds to perform biometric authentication for the applicants, provided that the validation was successful.

7. Data Storage: Upon successful biometric authentication, the data is securely stored in the CSC database. Simultaneously, the NSP portal is updated with the outcome of the biometric authentication, whether it was successful or not, along with other transaction details.



The NSP Biometric Authentication Process is a crucial mechanism to ensure the authenticity of scholarship applicants. By verifying an applicant’s identity through biometric data, it helps in the fair and transparent distribution of scholarships. This process, conducted by dedicated CSC VLEs, is an integral part of the NSP and contributes to its effectiveness.

In this article, we’ve covered the entire procedure step by step. If you are an applicant, it’s essential to follow these steps meticulously to ensure a smooth authentication process. As always, stay tuned to JK Student Update for more informative articles on scholarships and educational updates.
