Starting this year, that is, 2021, all health details of the employees of Delhi government will be submitted on a portal. All government departments have been officially directed to upload the database of their about four lakh strong workforce to the portal in the prescribed format. Henceforth, employees will have to fill in performance review forms online, which their reporting managers will review and forward within a newly-developed digital system.
This is just a small step towards implementing a paperless governance policy. While the intention was there earlier too, the whole transformation was accelerated following the challenges faced during the pandemic.
SPARROW, that is, smart performance appraisal report recording online window, is the portal which the Delhi government will be using from now on. The same was implemented by the Central government two years ago. The heads of departments have been given a briefing about the entire process.
Employees are mandated to fill in their health details in the review form starting this year. That means, they will have to provide all details related to treatments, surgeries and annual health checkups. The manual process of yearly performance review of employees will cease to exist, and the entire process will move to the digital format. The system will cover all Delhi government departments including, power, health, finance, transport, home, administration, social welfare, public works, food, art & culture, revenue, education, planning and so on.
