Central Government decided to implement the Bio metric Attendance System in all Central Government Offices in 2014. This system is working with the authentication of Finger Print of every employee. Fingerprint-based biometric devices have been installed to accurately record the time of entry and exit of employees. This system greatly reduces chances of error.

Bio metric System is an enabling platform only, there is no change in regular formalities like office hours, late attendance etc.

The Govt notified for all Ministries and Departments for purchasing the Bio metric equipment should be as per the specifications of DeitY on DGS&D from authorized vendors only. The Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) has provided the technical guidance for installing the system.

The Central government employees who are habitually late, early leaving is also to be treated in the same manner as late coming, disciplinary action may be taken against the government employee.

Aadhar Enable Biometric Attendance System

In 2015 the Central Government has decided to introduce Aadhar Enable Biometric Attendance System to replace the manual system of marking of attendance to ensure punctuality. It is mandatory for employees to have a valid Aadhaar number to start marking attendance. Without an Aadhaar number, the employees will not be able to mark attendance.

As per CCS (Conduct) Rule No.3(I)(ii), every Government employee shall at all times maintain devotion to duty.

Section incharge of Government department to ensure punctuality and overstay during the lunch hours and also not leave office before time. Habitual late attendance is viewed as conduct unbecoming of a Government employee in all levels and disciplinary action may be taken against such a employee. All branch officers also conduct surprise checks with regular intervals.

Biometric Attendance Portal

This portal is real time monitoring of attendance of all registered employees. This system will generate daily list of the in and out timings and such list are on Leave, Tour, Training. However, due to non availability of information in the system, they are being shown as absentees.

7th CPC Increment: Increment Day for CG Employees

7th CPC Increment: Today Increment Day for CG Employees

7th Pay Commission Increment: Increment Day for Central Government Employees on 1.7.2019
After implementation of 7th Pay Commission, all group of Central Government employees are getting an annual increment on 1st January or 1st July of every year. Most of the employees are getting an annual increment 1st July of every year. So, today Increment Day for Central Government Employees.

The Central Govt has decided to implement the two date option with effect from 1.1.2016 as per 7th CPC recommendations. Before that, only one date (1st July of every year) for annual increment in the regime of 6th Pay Commission.

Calculation of Annual Increment

The rate of Annual Increment is 3% of Basic Pay (Matrix Pay). However, there is no calculation of 3% of basic pay. All we know the 7th Pay Commission designed and recommended the Pay Matrix Table for all group of CG Employees. From the table itself, we could see the next basic pay with annual increment. Let’s explain with an illustration…

In case of an employee is in the basic pay of Rs.33,300 in Level 4. When he gets an annual increment on 1st July 2019, he will just move one stage down (next cell of the same pay matrix level) in the same level. Hence after increment, his pay will be Rs.34,300

No Overtime for Central Government employees: Discontinuatin of Overtime Allowance for CG Employees – Rajya Sabha Q & A

Discontinuation of Overtime Allowance

In Rajya Sabha on 27.6.2019 Minister Dr.Jitendra Singh answered to a question in a written form about the Overtime Allowance for Central Staff as follows…

“In pursuance of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, the Government has decided to discontinue overtime allowance for categories other than operational staff and the industrial employees governed by statutory provisions, w.e.f. 1.7.2017.

what says 7th CPC on Overtime Allowance?

The 7th Pay Commission has recommended to discontinue Overtime for all categories of CG employees other than Operational Staff and Industrial Employees who are governed by statutory provisions may be accepted.

Operational Staff:

All non-ministerial non-gazetted Central Government servants directly involved in smooth operation of the office including those tasked with operation of some electrical or mechanical equipment.

The concerned Administration Wing of the Ministries / Departments will prepare a list of operational Staff with full justification based on the above parameters for inclusion of a particular category of staff in the list of operational staff with the approval of IS (Admn.) and Financial Adviser of the concerned Ministry / Department.

a) OTA should be paid only when his/ her senior officer directs the concerned employee(s) in writing for staying back in office to attend urgent nature of work.

The OTA will be calculated on the basis of biometric attendance.

The OTA for Staff Car Drivers should be linked with biometric system as normally, the designated parking is allotted in the office building. However, in cases where the parking lot is provided far from office, the Staff Car Driver would mark his/ her attendance while leaving from his office and a grace time of not exceeding 2 hours should be allowed to cover the distance travelled after leaving office, including the time to drop the officer and then reaching the parking lot. In such cases, calculation can be done from log books, duly verified by the officer concerned.

The OTA to field officials should be calculated on the basis of biometric attendance, as normally, such officers are given facility of official transport to attend the field work. Such officers are supposed to report in office before proceeding to field. In cases, where officials are required to attend the field work directly from home, they may be extended facility of official transport from home in lieu of transport allowance and OTA may be given on the basis of the log book of that vehicle, duly verified by their senior officers.

Revision of OTA Rates:

Since, the Government has decided not to revise the rates of OTA, the rates as prescribed in this Department’s OM dated 19th March, 1991 for Office Staff, Staff Car Drivers and Operative Staff will continue to operate subject to their fulfillment of the above conditions.

These instructions will be applicable with effect from 01 July, 2017
