"The decision on biometric attendance system was taken in a meeting in which Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was also present," a government official told IANS.
According to officials, Administrative Reforms Minister Somnath Bharti proposed the move to Kejriwal who agreed to it.
"To make the government functioning more effective, Bharti has proposed this. It will be implemented in a day or two. There was no such system during Congress rule," an official said.
Bharti has issued directions to all the concerned departments regarding the measure.
