Students attendance in the classroom is very important task and if taken manually wastes a lot of time. There are many automatic methods available for this purpose, i.e., biometric attendance. All these methods also waste time because students have to make a queue to touch their thumb on the scanning device. This paper describes the efficient algorithm that automatically marks the attendance without human intervention. This attendance is recorded by using a camera attached in front of classroom that is continuously capturing images of students, detect the faces in images and compare the detected faces with the database and mark the attendance.
