To improve efficiency, Centre has decided to use an Aadhar Eanabled Bio-metric Attendance System (AEBAS) in all offices of the Central Government.
“There is no change in the instructions relating to office hours, late attendance etc. Biometric attendance system is only an enabling platform,”MoS Dr. Jitendra Singh said in a written reply to a question by Muthamsetti Srinivasa Rao (Avanthi) in the Lok Sabha Wednesday.
As per the available information, there is a difference between the number of registered employees and number of employees marking their attendance.
All the Ministries have been informed to pass on the necessary directions to all employees to mark their attendance in the Biometric Attendance Portal on regular basis.
Due to improvement in connectivity and transport facility in the last two years, coupled with concentrated administrative focus, more and more youngsters are now heading towards the northeastern states to venture into entrepreneurship
New Delhi, October 16, 2017 : Union Minister of State for Development of the North Eastern Region (DoNER) Jitendra Singh claimed that the area was fast emerging as the new start-up destination for youngsters from all over India, an official statement on Monday.
Due to improvement in connectivity and transport facility in the last two years, coupled with concentrated administrative focus, more and more youngsters are now heading towards the northeastern states to venture into entrepreneurship and take advantage of its unexplored potential, he said, according to a DoNER Ministry statement.
Citing an example, he said in certain areas of Northeast, including states like Arunachal Pradesh, “while almost 40 per cent of the fruit goes waste on account of lack of adequate storage and transport facilities, the same can be used to produce and manufacture fresh and pure fruit juice at a much more cost-effective price”.
During an interaction with youngsters, Jitendra Singh also pointed out that many new airports coming up at Pakyong (Sikkim), Itanagar and Shillong, which along with a time-bound plan to lay broad-gauge rail track, would bring in further ease of doing business.
“Another sector of entrepreneurship which is fast emerging in Northeast is the medical and healthcare sector.
“For years, there has been a trend for patients to shift outside the region, mostly to Kolkata or Vellore, but the encouragement given to the private corporate sector has now resulted in the opening of new hospitals within the region itself and young entrepreneurs are taking the lead,” he said.
