New Delhi, Sep 1 (ANI): Home Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday inaugurated a biometric identification system in his ministry to ensure punctuality among the staff.
"I hope that people will absorb the spirit and the purpose behind the system which is being introduced. This is a message to the whole country that everyone must do their work for the allotted hours," he said.
"The Ministry understands that some flexibility is needed but whoever comes late will have to work that much time extra," he added.
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.
Under this system, all officers/officials of the Ministry will be registering their arrivals in the morning and departure for the day.
