Telangana State Police is gearing up to fully automate its human resource management system (HRM). By adopting technology, the Department, which has a strength of about 80,000 personnel, hopes to achieve a higher level of efficiency.
The automated HRMS will efficiently manage all aspects, including recruitment, employee data (service register), time and attendance, absence and leave, performance and rewards, training, learning and development, administration, user analytics as well as personnel grievances.
This is a significant step towards modernisation of the department, considering its huge employee strength and resulting complexities in administration.
The compilation of employee data for the HRMS had begun almost two years back.
It is not just the Telangana Police that is giving serious thought to digitisation. Western Railway recently introduced the e-pass facility as part of its first module of digital HRMS. It is the paperless version of the privilege pass or privilege ticket order that is given to employees of the Indian Railways and their families. All employees are required to download the HRMS app, and log in using the id and password issued to them by the Railways. The e-pass that gets generated thus can be downloaded by the employees whenever they want to, using which they can book their tickets online at any time.
The employees will not have to visit their office to get the e-pass issued and no paper work will be required henceforth. This is a major step towards the Digital India movement.
Recently, the Centre has issued a directive to all ministries and departments to stop the practice of printing of calendars, diaries, schedulers and so on. It has asked them to publish these online in the digital form.
