Chidambaram to tighten attendance norms in Home Ministry

THOSE working in home ministry are under pressure now as home minister P Chidambaram is keen to punish those who come late and skip office midway. For the non-serious lot who love to play cards outside the North Block during lunch time, the biometrics machines installed last year to check attendance of office goers have turned out to be quite a threat.
But, the home ministry has now said it will punish workers who come late or leave early after employees are found to have skipped the entire attendance process. There are no data available on how many employees have not participated in Chidambaram’s dream project of biometric attendance which is expected to be followed in other ministries too.
According to rules, a person who is late by 10 minutes three times a month loses a casual leave. According to the attendance rules, employees including officers, put in eight hours of work a day and 40 hours a week.
