Dear Editor, Our state is a corrupt state and here people only talk about their rights and forgets their duty. To make people accountable biometric attendance machines system was introduced and an order was issued to install biometric attendance system in every government organization. Notwithstanding the government orders of marking attendance on biometric machines regularly, most of the offices in Jammu disobey this order. Many times it is found that these machines are defunct and there is no manual attendance of the employees. It can be seen that in many of the government organizations these biometric machines remain out of order and employees make merry in the absence of any check. These defunct biometric attendance machines are making mockery of the government order. It is a drill that the defunct machines are to be repaired within the timeframe of 15 days by the concerned agencies and these 15 days would become happy good days for the employees who make truant. Many times it is noticed that common people suffer due to this. Recently, in a government public dealing office, I met a 55 yr old senior citizen who was waiting from 3 hours for the officer to come on the seat to get his work done. Government offices start working at 10:00 AM but due to defunct biometric attendance system; there is poor attendance in the offices and employees come comfortably and the resultant effect is that common people suffer due to this. The need of the hour is that an enquiry should be done in such government offices where biometric machines are repeatedly going out of order and it should be made compulsory that in case the biometric machine is not working a manual attendance on register should be done to make employees accountable.
