Pims decides to restart biometric attendance from today


The Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) has decided to restart the biometric attendance system for its employees from Wednesday.

The biometric attendance system was suspended in the first week of March in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.

However, the employees have expressed concerns over the decision saying it can become a reason for the spread of the virus. But the hospital management is of the view that time has come to move towards normalisation.

According to a circular issued on Aug 4, doctors, postgraduates, house officers, nurses, paramedics and other staff have been asked to mark their attendance through the biometric attendance machine from Aug 5 (today).
