Due to employees’ tardiness, the Allahabad High Court have ordered the installation of a biometric system in the office of the Chief Standing Counsel.

In order to ensure that CSC personnel get at work on time, the Allahabad High Court ordered the State government to implement the biometric system in the office of the Chief Standing Counsel (CSC) within two weeks [Nar Singh & Ors v State].

Single-judge Justice Rohit Ranjan Agarwal was forced to issue the directive after seeing that employees’ failure to arrive at the CSC office promptly was causing a delay in the timely delivery of documents from the CSC office to the Court.

The instruction was given in response to a request for adjournment made by a State’s attorney in a case on the grounds that the case file did not originate from the CSC’s office.
