P Chidambaram Inaugurates Biometric Attendance Control System

Home Minister P. Chidambaram inaugurated the Biometric AttendanceControl System, which is implemented at the home ministry offices located North Block, Jaisalmer House and Lok Nayak Bhawan. This automated attendance system is aimed at ensuring that employees come to work on time.
Taking the initiative for ensuring punctuality, Chidambaram arrived at 9 a.m. at the North Block and registered his attendance by placing his finger on the scanner.
 

The proposal for the implementation of the biometric scanners had been put forward a few months ago by Chidambaram himself. This idea was given by him after he started noticing that many officials were not even reporting for work, but their attendance had been found. He had also noticed that people were in the habit of leaving office before the scheduled time.

“Under this system, all officials of the ministry will be registering their arrivals in the morning and departure for the day,” said a senior ministry official.
According to a home ministry official, any employee who registers three late arrivals in a month will have a cut in her casual leave.
The employees are expected to reach office at 9 a.m. sharp, and put their index finger on the scanner, which will identify their fingerprint, flash their employee code and name and register their arrival. They will have to go through the same drill when leaving for the day at 5.30 p.m.
