Subject: Aadhar Enabled Bio-metric Attendance System (AEBAS) for punctuality in Military Engineer Services-reg.
Reference MoD ID Nos. 16(18)/2017/D(Works-II) dated 04.07.2017 and 19.12.2017 regarding Bio-metric Attendance System for punctuality in Defence Establishment.
2. Ministry has observed that till date Aadhar Enabled Bio-metric Attendance System is not implemented in E-in-C’s Branch. Further, it is also observed that subordinate offices are not maintaining proper leave record of Officers. The Ministry has taken a very serious view in this regard as non-maintenance of leave record will result in various administrative issues and loss to government exchequer.
3. In view of above, it is once again directed that Aadhar Enabled Bio-metric Attendance System shall be implemented in E-in-C’s Branch and all, the offices of Military Engineer Services. Non-implementation shall be viewed seriously and appropriate action as per relevant service rules/conduct rules shall be taken against the erring officials. As informed by E-in-C’s Branch, the case for exemption of Service Personnel is still under consideration in this Ministry, therefore, presently Service Personnel are not covered under ibid instructions.
4. This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.
