The Central Government employees are marking their attendance in the Aadhar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS). There is a difference between the number of registered employees and number of employees marking their attendance. The Department of Personnel & Training has issued fresh instructions to all Ministries/ Departments on 28.01.2015 that necessary directions may be issued to all employees to mark their attendance in the Biometric Attendance Portal on regular basis.
Biometric attendance system is an enabling platform for marking of attendance. There is no change in the instructions relating to office hours, late attendance etc. There is no proposal to introduce an alternative system.
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in Prime Minister’s office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Dushyant Chautala in the Lok Sabha today.
