Launch of eHRMS 2.0 for central govt. employees

The revamped eHRMS 2.0 system looks to right the wrongs of its predecessor.


Union Minister Jitendra Singh announced the launch of the new eHRMS 2.0 toolkit for central government employees on Sunday.

E-Books on major initiatives and achievements of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions were announced as a part of the Good Governance Day celebrations in the national capital on Sunday.

An official statement said, “After inaugurating the Good Governance Week celebrations from 19-25 December 2022 with a nationwide launch of ‘Prashasan Gaon Ki Ore’ campaign on 19th December, the Good Governance Day will also commemorate the birth anniversary of our visionary former Prime Minister, Bharat Ratna, Atal Bihari Vajpayee.”

As the previous version of the eHRMS tool was limited, Singh launched the second version in the hope that employees will finally be able to avail the benefits of such a program.

The second version hopes to fix the issues faced by version one.

The first version limited users to certain functionalities and did not integrate with existing HR software well.

A statement from the government confirmed Singh’s intentions with the release of the new platform, saying, “Singh will launch the revamped e-HRMS 2.0 portal as the earlier iteration of the e-HRMS was limited in scope, where employees could avail limited services and it was not connected with other human resource applications. As a result, the employees were unable to get the full benefits of digital service deliveries and seamless connection with HR applications and initiatives of the government.”

eHRMS 2.0 provides users with new capabilities like transfers (rotation or mutual), deputation, private foreign visits, vigilance status, deputation opportunities, service books and other basic HR services like leave, tours, reimbursements among others, in digital mode.

The new portal is the first of its kind to offer end-to-end HR services in the government sector.

According to the government, the revamped eHRMS 2.0 system will save several thousands of man hours and tons of printing paper. Additionally, it will help employees feel more satisfied with their work, promote ease of HR processes and enhance productivity and transparency in administrative functioning.
