The Government has directed all Government servants to strictly observe punctuality in attendance. All Ministries and Departments besides Autonomous Bodies, CBI, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariats and the Union Territories Administrations have been asked to issue necessary directions to all employees at all levels to mark their attendance in the Biometric Attendance System (BAS) portal on regular basis.
