New Delhi: Bureaucrats seem to be in for some tough times with a new website helping not only the government but also the public keep a watch on their movements. The website - attendance.gov.in – will let users find out how many officials in the registered organisations reported for work on a particular day. The website launched on September 30, clocks the in and out times of bureaucrats.
It also informs which official attended office on a particular day, and if some of them left midway.
The portal covers 50,748 employees in 149 organisations.
Some of the organisations registered include Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, the Armed Forces Tribunal, Central Water Commission, the Cabinet Secretariat and the Ministry of External Affairs.
A senior official said that the idea had come from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the aim was not just to improve punctuality but to weed out ghost employees as well, he added.
