Biometric attendance for Haryana teachers


Chandigarh : Government school teachers in Haryana will now have their attendance marked on biometric machines, an official said here Wednesday.

“Attendance of teachers in Haryana will soon be recorded by their thumb impressions, as biometric machines are being installed in all government schools,” said School Education Director Vijayendra Kumar.

He said the new technique of marking attendance was being introduced to curb the tendency of teachers coming late to schools.

“All teachers would have to press a button of these machines with their thumb to mark their attendance. The machines would be installed in the office of the school principal,” he said.

Haryana has over 22,300 government schools.
