Biometric attendance for sanitation workers at Allahabad’s Magh Mela

biometric attendance for sanitationThe health department of Allahabad has decided to introduce biometric attendance for sanitation workers who will be assigned duties during the Magh Mela.

More than 10,000 sanitation workers will ensure cleanliness at the Magh Mela which will be held on January 2 next year.

To keep a tab on the location of these workers, the department will also utilise geo-sensing or RFID (radio frequency identification) devices.

” The department would set up 56 toilet complexes in and around the event’s premises and at least 150-160 toilets would be constructed in a single complex. A Mumbai-based agency would be installing the biometric attendance system, said a Magh Mela official.

For the first time, free Wi-Fi will be offered to devotees coming to take a holy dip in Sangam.

The mela advisory committee has sought suggestions and ideas from saints, professors of Allahabad University and representatives of various social/cultural and religious organisations to make Magh Mela operations smooth.

“We are making sincere efforts to improve the basic facilities for the visitors and pilgrims and after coming over previous years’ shortcomings, the magh mela would be held this year in an ideal manner,” said District magistrate Suhas L Y.
The distribution of land among social, cultural and religious organisations will begin in the last days of this month.
