Mark attendance through biometric system: Central govt to employees

New Delhi: The central government has asked all its employees to use the biometric attendance system after a huge difference was noticed in the numbers of registered workers and those marking their attendance.

The secretaries of all ministries and departments have been requested to issue directions to all employees to mark their attendance in BAS Portal on regular basis, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) today’s Office Memorandum F.No.11013/9/2014-Estt.A-III said.

The Centre had late last year decided to use an Aadhaar enabled bio-metric attendance system in all its offices, including attached or subordinate, across the country.

“All employees are, therefore, required to register themselves in the system and mark their attendance. Instructions already exist for dealing with cases of late attendance or unauthorised absence, which may be followed.

“It is requested that necessary directions may be issued to all employees to mark their attendance in BAS portal on regular basis,” an order issued by the DoPT said.
