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.
