New Delhi: Imagine of getting attendance without being present on duty, hard to digest but the workers of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) are practising this habit.

Interestingly, their attendances are being marked in the installed biometric machine while they were absent from their duty. The higher authority remains a mute spectator. The matter has now been taken up at the meeting of the Standing Committee chaired by Yogendra Chandolia.

According to the sources, most of the Municipal Corporation staff has given their fake thumb impressions to their colleagues who mark their attendance in their absence. Some workers raised the issue before the higher authorities but all the efforts went in vain.

Vice-chairman of the committee, Parkash Pandey said that the biometric system has been installed in the department to improve the workflow of the system.
