Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced that state government officials would get smartwatches to track their movement during office hours. It will also serve as a tool to mark attendance, he said.
This announcement was made by the chief minister during the 'Vikas' rally in Sarmathla village of Sohna. The GPS-enabled wristwatch costs around Rs 7,000- Rs 8,000 and the government has to pay for it.
Khattar said "All government officials in the state will wear smartwatches that will track their movement during office hours as well as serve as a tool to mark attendance".
Previous biometric attendance marking system at the government offices would remain discontinued due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While GPS-enabled smartwatches will soon be introduced to track attendance, Khattar added.
