The objective is to bring in transparency and turn the entire process paperless.
The West Bengal government has introduced e-HRMS in all the departments of the state government. The manual process practiced in various offices of the state government will now be replaced by a web-based online system.
From July 1, all payments such as travel allowance, general provident fund and loans of employees will be managed through the online system. The new system will also enable an employee to access details about his salary and leaves online.
The state government is stressing on making the system online for fast execution of work. In fact, it has also set up a separate e-governance department.
The state finance department had earlier issued a notification directing all the departments to “complete the mapping of stakeholders’ sub module” of the e-HRMS by May 22. But following request of different departments, the time has been extended till June 30.
The objective is to bring transparency to the system and turn the entire process paperless. This will not only help in maintaining proper records but also make the task faster, helping the employees to get their benefits without any delay.
The state government has also organized a three-day training program for 90 police officers and ministerial staff. The trainees will be undergoing both theoretical and practical training on how to implement the e-HRMS properly.
