The paper presents a system based on biometrics that generates the person's face by scanning of the palm. It does the recognition of an unknown person which is not enrolled in the database before. A new approach is introduced using Biometrics where high security tasks like criminal identification and investigation, along with various other applications like extracting the person's detail from the universal database of a country/place, recognizing the face of the person who met with some casualties, checking out the last person who attended the ATM machine ,etc. The study shows that there is a relationship between palm and face. Just by the palm scan the proposed system will generate eyes, nose, eyebrows and lips of new person. And by recognition of the person by the generated face features further investigation can be done by central database of the country/place
