Aadhaar-based biometric attendance systems for central government employees will be fully operational by the end of this month.
"The biometric attendance system for central employees will be fully functional by the end of this month," Information Technology Secretary Ram Sevak Sharma told PTI.
According to Sharma, the attendance of the employees can be tracked through a website, attendencedotgovdotin, which would be fully operational by the month-end.
The Centre is set to implement Aadhaar-based biometric system for attendance in all government departments and state-owned entities spread across Delhi, a top official said.
Department of electronics & information technology (DeitY) has so far implemented Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) in 54 government locations in Delhi that requires fingerprint-based attendance for employees entering into the office premise. Each device takes 2 seconds to establish biometrics identity and gives real-time access.
