PESHAWAR:- Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government's Millions Rs Biometric Attendance System has been functioning in several departments due to non-payment of dues to cell phone companies since last September. According to information gathered by various departments and agencies, BAS did not work in Peshawar and Biometric attendance system district's civil affairs offices, hospitals, universities, schools and branches after the government shut down the service because it did not pay dues.

The state is spending enormous amounts on BAS installation to ensure employee attendance at key offices, offices, hospitals, schools, universities and other institutions. Directorate of Information Technology was assigned to the mission in 2014 with BAS installation.

Officials told Dawn that BAS is being installed at all levels in all the local departments and departments. The government allocated Rp. 81 million in Phase 1 to install the system in major hospitals and universities' civil affairs offices, a source said.

The government has not paid dues for cytoplasm for many years.

In this project, we will provide Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) to software development, hardware installation, major departments, sub-departments and educational institutions. The department provided biometric devices to the relevant departments. An IT spokesman confirmed that BAS did not work because the cellular company paused the service. He said the department had already handed over the dues to the department before the SIM expired.

"The cellular company would have shut down the system due to nonpayment of dues," he said. Officials said they would charge 1 gigabyte to Rs270 under this agreement.

He suggested that the secretariat might stop SIM after November 2016 due to non - payment of dues. The officials similarly notified other departments and chiefs about the blockade of SIM for dues payout. "Our mission was to install the system and pay for the company in advance for a certain amount of time. After one year, the department is responsible for paying the dues for the service on a regular basis." BAS was a major initiative to prevent absences from government departments, especially schools and hospitals, in order to improve the performance of the coalition government in Tehreek-i-Insaf, Pakistan.

Its purpose was to monitor attendance in real time through an online dashboard, identify ghost staff, and ensure office productivity. Absenteeism is an important issue in public sector organizations, especially schools, hospitals and other service providers.
