It has been decided to extend the provisions of the Biometric System of recording attendance of the employees upto the level of Group D in all the Medical College & Hospitals and the District Hospitals in Phase II very shortly. For the proper implementation of this system, you are requested to initiate the following course of action:-

For employees engaged in contract, the unique PAN no may be thought of.

2. The list of employees in soft copy is to be handed over to the representative of M/S Fortuna Impex Pvt Ltd, the selected vendor who will visit the Institution soon to assess requirement of additional machine if any, and to prepare the database along with finger print scanning for enrolment.

3. Well convenient and protected place(s) for installation of additional biometric machines, if required is to be identified.

4. The updated leave account i.e CL/EL/HPL & maternal leave/child care leave (in case of female employees) for all these Groups of employees is to be prepared and handed over to the vendor for uploading in the biometric system.

5. The system will have direct linkage with the leave account of the concerned employee and deduction of leave would follow in case of late/absent as per extant govt rules.
