Ghost Workers

The Hindustan Times today reported that thanks to a brand new biometric attendance system, the MCD has found out they have 22, 853 fake employees on their rolls. A probe revealed that the corporation now has 104,241 employees. The MCD employs people ranging from teachers to cleaners and gardeners in the capital city of 14 million people. The corporation spends about Rs 17 crore a month and Rs 204 crore per year to pay these fake employees. But no one is sure for how long this has been going on.

Till the biometric system beeped and gave the story away, the municipal corporation had been in denial mode about this scandal. In true sarkari sytle, an in-depth inquiry has been promised into this incident and a freeze has been ordered on fresh recruitments.

Now all we need is a system to measure the efficiency of the remaining workers who reportly come to work everyday.
