Clarification on Biometric Attendance Control System
Attention has been drawn to some reports appearing in the media about the declining trend in attendance recorded in the Biometric Attendance Control System installed in the Ministry of Home Affairs. This is factually not correct. As against an average of 1087 employees who marked their attendance in December, 2009, the figure has risen to 1173 in January 2010 and 1240 during February 2010. This does not include those who are on leave, tour, training etc. It is also clarified that there are no ghost employees in the Ministry of Home Affairs.
