Come July 15, no e-attendance would mean no salary for officials from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

Civic officials said of the 1.07 lakh employees in BMC, almost 70,000 have been brought under the biometric attendance, the rest will also be incorporated by July 15.

Until recently, the civic body was relying on the attendance register. The tough stance is against employees who benefit from administrative leniency and skip work by just signing on the register.

Sudhir Naik, deputy municipal commissioner of the general administration department in BMC, confirmed the development. He said, “Employees won’t get salary if they fail to mark attendance through the biometric system.”

The BMC recently did away with its British-era regime of spending close to 10 to 11 hours in office where officials would take routine breaks. Now officials work from 10.30 am to 5.30 pm with just a lunch break.
