While hailing introduction of Bimetric attendance system as a good reform to ensure punctuality in offices, Chairman PDF and MLA Khansahib Hakeem Muhammad Yaseen has sought attention of the authorities towards uncertainty being faced by the field staff posted in remote area.
In a statement here Yaseen said, “Thousands of field workers in remote areas are in a fix what to do. How can a worker or employee posted in a remote farm can mark his attendance where biometric system was impracticable,” Yaseen said most of the employees and daily rated workers deployed on field duty in remote areas have complained that they are unable to mark their attendance.
He said the administration should immediately come out with elaborate attendance guidelines for those field employees and workers who are deployed on field duty in remote areas so that the prevailing ambiguity in this regard is cleared.
Hakeem Yaseen has asked the Governor administration to also focus on disposal of cases in the offices so that grievances of the people on account of alleged redtapeism are redressed. He has called for a robust file disposal mechanism in offices to make officers accountable.
Welcoming the introduction of Biometric attendance system in the government offices, Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) president and former minister, Ghulam Hassan Mir on Tuesday said that the field staff is facing uncertainty due to the system.
Mir asked the authorities to come out with elaborate attendance guidelines for those field employees and workers who are deployed on field duty. “How can field staff mark his attendance where biometric system was impracticable,” Mir asked.
