MP power discom workers mark attendance by selfies

Amid the ongoing corona pandemic, the employees of the Madhya Pradesh electricity distribution company will now have to register their attendance with a selfie. They had been so far registering their attendance through the biometric system.

As per the official information, the Madhya Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company Limited has taken the step as a precautionary measure against the corona outbreak. The selfie-based alternative arrangement would replace the current biometric attendance system.

To register attendance at the time of their entry and exit from the company premises, the employees have to upload their selfies on their mobile phones through the company’s ‘Prayas’ app. The employees have to take the selfie at a place from where their seating or workplace is clearly visible.
