Karachi Medical and Dental College gets biometric system

Karachi, December 15, 2014 (PPI-OT): Following the directive of KMC Administrator Rauf Akhtar Farooqui, the Karachi Medical and Dental College has installed the biometric system so that action could be taken against ghost employees besides ensuring the attendance of college staff.

Through this latest biometric system the identity of employee along with thumb impression and face recognition could be done which would curb any chances of forgery. With the installation of this system in college the enrolment of staff was started to collect and compile all the data of employees.

The new system will be implemented in January 2015 after the completion of data collection process by Dec 2014. Action will be taken against the staff members after withholding their pay who would found not attending their duty or not observing punctuality in office hours.

The machine used for this purpose has been provided with the protection of acrylic glass shield to eradicate any chances of its breakdown. A total of five such machines were put in place and the college faculty and administrative staff was directed to appear with their college identity cards for feeding of their data in this system.

While giving a briefing in this connection to the Administrator Karachi Rauf Akhtar Farooqui, the administrative officers of KMDC informed that ghost or absconding employees would be identified and all details regarding their attending to their duty made available.

Administrator Rauf Akhtar Farooqui said KMDC has been regarded as a well standard medical institution in the country that is why the KMC has begun the reform process from here to save this noble institution from any indiscipline or non-punctuality of staff members.

He said how could a department maintain its reputation if its officers and lower staff was not attending to their duty. It was very unfortunate that some of the doctors were serving in foreign countries without obtaining the leaves or informing the administration about this. These were also getting their salary from KMC which was quite unjust to the citizens. He said the biometric system was installed to check all such irregularities with the help of latest technology.

This system will be implemented in Abbasi Shaheed Hospital also from January for which work already underway and then this will be gradually implemented in all the KMC departments with its control would be with the central command and control system, Information Technology department or the payroll section. Only those employees would be eligible to receive their salary who would attend their duty punctually.

Administrator KMC said without getting into the debate of what happened in past, all the officers and lower staff of KMC must now observe punctuality in office hours because the city needs their attention, the KMC staff should therefore pay full attention on resolving the problems of citizens.
