Attendance tracking website for all central government employees-launched.
The Narendra Modi government launched an attendance tracking website(http://attendance.gov.in/) for all central government employees. The website is expected to help boost transparency in the functioning of bureaucrats.
The website, which is still being developed, will be based on the Jharkhand government’s attendance tracking website. The Jharkhand government’s website gives real time information on the number of employees present at work, their average clock in and out times etc. The website also provides employee attendance information from each district.
Reports say that the Centre’s website too will have features of real time tracking of attendance.
The Narendra Modi government had earlier directed that Aadhar-based bio-metric attendance systems should be introduced for recording attendance. The website will use the information entered in the biometric devices and will act as a ‘centralised management information system’ (MIS) for attendance.
Each employee would be given a unique ID from the first or last 6 digits of their Aadhar numbers. This ID will help maintain the database for the website. Till today i,e,30th Aug.2014, 19097 users across 125 organisations, have registered on the website so far. In order to register, nodal officers from the respective department/organisation must log in the website and create master lists of locations, designations and divisions in their offices. Following this, employees can register individually through the unique ID given to them
