Sub:– Aadhar enabled Biometric Attendance System for marking attendance.
The Department of Personnel & Trair ing vide letter No. 11013/9/2014-Estt(A-III) dated 21st November 2014 (circulated vide Hqrs Office letter No. AN/lll/3012/Misc/BAS dated 20.02.2015) has decided to use an AADHAR based Bio-metric Attendance System (AEBAS) in all offices of the Central Government, including attached/sub-ordinate offices in India.
Biometric Attendance System is only an enabling platform. There is no change in the instructions relating to office hours, late attendance etc. which will continue to apply. As per extant instructions, half-a-day’s Casual leave should be debited for each day of late attendance, but late attendance upto an hour, on not more than two occassions in a month, and for justiafiable reasons may be condoned by the competent authority. In addition to debiting Casual Leave(or Earned Leave, when no CL is available) disciplinary action may also be taken against government servants who are habitually late. Early leaving is also to be treatE d in the same manner as late coming.
Therefore, all the staff and officers will mark their attendance through AEBAS only. The manual attendance may be discontirwed immediately.
