The Jammu and Kashmir government on Friday made biometric attendance compulsory for its employees to “ensure punctuality.”

An order issued here by the General Administration Department (GAD) said: “In order to ensure punctuality in the Government Offices/ Establishments, it has been decided to immediately implement Biometric Attendance System with immediate effect.”

“No salary or wages would be drawn in favour of the Government employees of any category for the month of June 2018 onwards unless they have enrolled themselves in Biometric System (Aadhar not mandatory),” said the order.

The order, it said, also applies to all the PSU employees, Contractual/ consolidated casual workers or any other type of persons drawing wages in any form from the public exchequer.

“It will be the duty of the concerned DDOs to ensure enrolment before 30th June, 2018 and furnish a certificate for the same along the Salary /Wage Bill presented in the Treasury, without which the Treasury Officers are directed not to entertain any Salary/ Wage bill.”

“From 22nd June, 2018 onwards, the marking of attendance in the system would be compulsory for all categories of employees and wage earners. Only after the scrutiny of monthly attendance, the DDOs would prepare Salary/Wage bill and certificate would accordingly be furnished alonwith the bill to the Treasuries concerned.”

In the order, all the officers and employees have been directed not to leave their place of posting either on tour or for personal reasons without written permission from their respective Heads of offices. “Any violation thereof will automatically attract disciplinary proceedings,” it said.

“All Administrative Secretaries and HODS within their Departments and Deputy Commissioners in their respective jurisdictions shall be responsible for full compliance of the above instructions.”
