for Ministry of Home Affairs | Date - 02-09-2009

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.
