Yogi Adityanathji  orders biometric attendance in Uttar Pradesh offices 


To ensure all government employees reach work on time, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has instructed that a biometric attendance system be put in place in offices up to the block level. 


Adityanath's instructions came during a meeting with officials of the rural development department late on Saturday night. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Dear Shri Adityanathji :


Factories and offices ( including many Public Sector establishments ) are having biometric attendance recording systems for many years


In UP , you will need thousands of these , costing hundreds of crores of rupees


Bad enough !


But what is worse is that these systems cannot help the administration for compiling any data other than “ Who “ came in when and left when ! How many hours did he / she remained “ present “ at the work-place !


A single purpose system of extremely limited benefit


I urge you to bypass this “ Jurassic Age “ and leapfrog to the “ New India “ Age , by implementing following suggestion ( earlier sent as email to all Policy Makers )


Let UP show the way to the rest of India  !

From BAD to MAD



BAD   =   Biometric Attendance Device

MAD   =   Mobile Attendance Device


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is my idea of a technology that we need to create for a better India :


Today EMPLOYEE ATTENDANCE SYSTEMS in India work at three levels as follows :


#   ENTIRELY MANUAL

     Attendance Register and Wage/Salary payment in cash or by Cheque


#   PARTLY AUTOMATED

     Punch cards or Bio-metric recording of attendance but manual calculation
     of wages / salaries and payment by cash or cheque


#   FULLY AUTOMATED

     Bio-metric Attendance Devices ( BAD ) , integrated with a home-grown or
     bought-out Salary Payment Software , running on a local Server.

     Salary payments could be by cheques or thru Electronic Transfer to
     concerned employee's bank account




Once in a while , if a company has several establishments within a city , those local servers are connected to a Central Server , doing all processing


In a rare case ( although , I am not aware of any ) , it may be that all the local servers of all the establishments of a company , all over the country , are networked with its central computer in its head-quarter



Now imagine this :


*  All smart phones to evolve as Bio-metric Attendance Devices , with built-in
    Bio-metric Recorders , GPS , a mobile attendance App ( called MAD ? )



*  App to have 2 buttons Green = IN  /  Red = OUT )



*  Employee to touch IN upon reaching his work-station and touch OUT ,
    while leaving work place , at the end of work-shift . That's all  !




*  Being GPS enabled , buttons will get activated ONLY when the employee
    has reached the work place ( not while he is on his way ! )


*  All 100 million establishments in India ( factories / offices / shops / clinics
    NGOs / Govt Depts ) to ensure that the MAD app is installed on the smart
    phone of each employee , when he joins

   
*  All of these smart phones to be connected ( IoT ? ) , with the Servers of ,


    *  Labour Ministries ( Central and States )


    *  HRD Ministry ( Central )


    *  Skills Development Ministry / NSDC


    *  Finance Ministries ( Central + States )


    *  NITI Aayog


    *  Income Tax Department


    *  Any other server that you may want to



*   MAD app is integrated with a STANDARD / COMMON , software system
     for computing daily wages / monthly salaries of ALL the persons working
     in those 100 million establishments ( whether they are casual /
     contractual  / trainee / apprentice / probationer / permanent / retained



*   As each person joins in any of these establishments , data re  that
     person must be inputted by the Employer into the App , such as :


   
     *  Name / Contact Details / DOB / Aadhar Card No / Employee Number

         ( Each unique Employee Number will be auto-generated by the
         common Salary Payment Software , running on IT Dept Server )



     *   Employee's Jandhan Yojana Bank Account Number for salary EC



     *   Employer's Jandhan bank account / Unique Employer Number



     *   Payment Mode ( Hourly / Daily / Monthly Rated , wages / salaries )



     *   Leave provisions / PF rate / TDS rate / Allowances / Reimbursements



     *   Any other relevant data ( either about employee of for employer )





WHAT  ARE  THE  ADVANTAGES  ?


*   For employees , no need to file a separate annual Income Tax Return


*   Direct deposit of PF / TDS amounts into bank accounts of Govt Depts


*   Direct Benefit Transfer ( DBT ) to every Employer for Stipend Subsidy ,
     based on number of total trainees / apprentices employed


*   Total number of employees in India ( category / region / industry )


*   Employment Density ( Industry wise / Region wise / Skill wise etc )


*   Net Employment Growth Rate ( weekly - monthly / Industry-wise )


*   Co-relation with no of persons graduating at various levels


*   Data about those Unemployed ( " Graduating " less " Employed " )


*   Overtime Statistics ( Use / Abuse )


*   Work-hour Analysis ( Ave hours / week - month )


*   Wage / Salary Rates ( Rs per hour ) - Industry wise / Region wise


     ( of great interest to Foreign Investors looking to bring down
       manufacturing costs , by outsourcing to India / manufacturing in India )


*   Compliance with labour laws / tax laws / Apprentice Act etc


*   Job Market Forecasts through BIG DATA ANALYTIC ( region / industry )


*   Demographic  Profiles of employees  ( Rural to Urban migration )


*   Per Capita Income Growth for persons using MAD app  ( MOM / YOY )


*   Changing composition between Blue Collar and White Collar employees


Then there could be many other benefits not envisaged now


Here is an opportunity for :


 *  Manufacturers of Smart Phones

     To shrink stationary / bulky / common , bio-metric devices to mobile /
     small / personalized / hand-held devices

    { Remember ?  

If you don't make yourself obsolete , someone else will  }


*  Tech Start Ups

     To come up with the Mobile App ( MAD ) / Technology Platform


*  NDA Government

    To implement what Shri Narendra Modiji said on 15 July 2015 :


   "  If China is like a manufacturing factory of the World , India should
    become the human resource capital of the World .


   That should be our target and we should lay emphasis on that . 


   We should have a futuristic vision and prepare plans for the next ten years "


  

   MAD  could well be an important element  of  that  " JAM PLAN "  !
