Kolkata: To ensure punctuality of the employees at Calcutta Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) Kolkata, the authorities have decided to issue a show cause notice to latecomers to the hospital.

According to media reports, the authorities received repeated complaints about the late arrival of the hospital staffs which disturbed the regular functioning of the services.

To ensure that all the staff members, including doctors and nursing staffs to come on time, the chairman instructed the officials at the hospital officials to mark their biometric attendance maximum by 9:30 am. If they fail to reach on time, they will have to take half day CL. If they mark their attendance after 10:00 am, it would be marked absent.  A senior official of the hospital was not in his office when the Rogi Kalyan Samiti chairman reached the hospital.

Nirmal Maji told the millennium post, “We came to know that some people are coming late to the hospital. We found some people register biometric attendance after the scheduled time. All the staff members must enter by 9.30 am failing which action will be taken against them.”

To curb absenteeism, the state health department had earlier introduced a biometric attendance system in different medical colleges and hospitals at various district and sub-district level. The health department had received many complaints from the district and sub-divisional hospitals that doctors do not report at the hospitals on a regular basis and some do not even enter the premises on time.

    LOOK AT THE PATHETIC STATE OF AFFAIRS ? IF THE BEGINNING OF THE DAY IS SO BAD , HOW IT IS TO BE AT THE END OF THE DAY (. 3. 30 PM ). I THINK MOST GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES GO TO WORK NOT FOR THE SALARY , MAINLY TO MAKE SOME EXTRA BUCK. ( SPECIALLY WHERE THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH HUMAN BEINGS DIRECTLY ). NOTHING CAN BE BETTER EXAMPLE THAN GETTING A CASTE CERTIFICATE , THE REAL COST IS AROUND 30 RUPESS , IT\’S SOLD / GIVEN FOR THAN 500 RUPESS. IT IS ALMOST SAME TO GET ANY SHIT OF PAPER FROM THE GOVERNMENT OFFICES . EPICENTER FOR ALL UNLAWFUL ACTIVITIES. STARTING FROM P M TO CM. , CHEAP SECRETARIES OF / AT EVERY LEVEL KNOWS IT , NO BODY DARE TO BREAK THIS CORRUPT PRACTICES. I THINK THE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES GET / COLLECT MORE THAN 5 TO 10 TIMES THE PRICE OF THE ORIGINAL FEE IN ALMOST ALL THE GOVERNMENT OFFICES . Despite HAVING ADHAR , AT EACH AND EVERY PLACE / LEVEL THEY KEEP ON ASKING CASTE , DOMICILE , INCOME & MANY OTHER CERTIFICATES. I THINK IN A YEAR AT A MONTH & IT\’S INCOME ONE GAS LOSE IN OBTAINING THESE DOCUMENTS .
