RFID tags are costly, compare to barcodes. We are trying to switchover from barcode application to RFID. We had a discussion with two three suppliers in this regard also. In a academic setup it is essentioal, but implimentation cost is very high.Equipments like alarm gates and high resulation computers etc.

Though RFID is costly in first sight but in longter it his very cheap. Reason: it wil reduce manpower particularly in Counter Section. In SVNIT, Surat I have installed RFID with self check out and Book Drop System. It reduces 4 Counter Attendant in 2 shifts. Now you calculate the salary includung all alowances, Medical El and so on, compare the same with the present cost of RFID. I have introduced and proved it as cheap in comparison with cost of manpower. You can access or download my Video Lecture at
You can implement RFID in different phases instead of implete complete System at a time. More important thing which I feel that you should install the complete systemthrough your software vendor otherwise you will get problem in future. If you install RFID by other than your software vendor and get some problem then you have to contact 2 parties and one will blamw to other and you will be in crucial position in case of emergency.
