Govt Stresses on Punctuality
The Government has directed all Government servants to strictly observe punctuality in attendance. All Ministries and Departments besides Autonomous Bodies, CBI, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariats and the Union Territories Administrations have been asked to issue necessary directions to all employees at all levels to mark their attendance in the Biometric Attendance System (BAS) portal on regular basis.
In a recent Office Memorandum, it is reiterated that the BAS is only an enabling platform and there is no change in the instructions relating to Office Hours, late attendance etc.
Citing provisions under the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964 the Memorandum reiterates that habitual late attendance will be viewed as conduct unbecoming of a Government servant and disciplinary action may be taken against such offenders.
The Memorandum is available on the DoPT website with the following link:
