Biometric Attendance Control System installed in Home Ministry

with 7 comments


As a systems improvement initiative, a Biometric Attendance Control System has been installed in Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). The Web-based system consists of 15 machines installed at various gates in three buildings where offices of MHA are housed, namely – North Block, Jaisalmer House and Lok Nayak Bhawan.

The system was inaugurated by the Union Home Minister Shri P.Chidambaram here this morning and became operational immediately thereafter. Under this system, all officers/officials of the Ministry will be registering their arrivals in the morning and departure for the day.


Clarification regarding Biometric Attendance Control System introduced in Home Ministry

Some queries have been raised in various quarters regarding the Biometric Attendance Control system installed in the Ministry of Home Affairs. These are clarified as below:

A working day consists of 8 hours ( 9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m with half an hour lunch break in MHA) and all officers/officials are expected to work for this minimum period. The purpose of introducing the system is to regulate this aspect, i.e. 8 hours of work in a day and 40 hours in a week. It is noted that some persons may get delayed due to transport/traffic problem or some other reasons. Such late arrivals within a reasonable period of 15-25 minutes will be acceptable subject to their adjusting their working hours upto 8 hours by delayed departure.

PFRDA sees ally in post offices to offer NPS services

with 0 Comment


Post offices will soon offer services under the new pension system as the department of posts is set to sign an agreement with the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) in this regard. Initially, the services will be available only in computerised post offices, an official in the ministry of communications & IT said.

After the agreement, the postal department will act as an agency to enrol NPS customers, the official said requesting anonymity. Technically known as ‘points of presence’ (PoPs), these agencies serve as contact and collection centres where pension contributions are collected under the NPS scheme. There are 21 PoPs providing NPS services including banks such as State Bank of India, Axis Bank, ICICI Bank, Oriental Bank of Union Bank of India.

The pension regulator is now convinced that some of the post offices have the IT infrastructure to serve the scheme.

Earlier, the watchdog had expressed doubt due to the poor IT penetration in the postal system, post offices may not be able to provide NPS services. “But around 3,000 post offices were found to be fully equipped,” the official said. The official didn’t specify the time frame within which the agreement will be signed. The PFRDA opened up the new pension system to all citizens from May 1, 2009. It is compulsory for all government employees joining service on or after January 1, 2004.

Under the new pension system, instead of agents selling the scheme, the regulator has banks and other financial institutions as points of presence, where an account could be opened. As a result, the marketing cost of the pension plan remains low and the fees applicable are disclosed upfront. The scheme offers a social security net for workers in the unorganised sector too.

The regulator is now in talks with the government to bear the transaction cost for the unorganised sector, which would make the scheme even more attractive.
