India launches website to monitor bureaucrats

0

NEW DELHI: India’s new right-wing government has begun an online trial run to register staff attendance records, seeking to tackle absenteeism among the country’s notoriously work-shy bureaucrats. New Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged during his election campaign to crack the whip on civil servants, notorious for arriving late, taking long lunches or spending parts of their day on the golf course. The new system will use fingerprints to ensure that workers have to physically turn up, and will not be able to clock in on each other’s behalf.
