The National Medical Commission (NMC) has issued a Circular on transfer of Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) attendance ID. This notice was issued on 6th March, 2023.
It may be recalled that on 19th October, 2022, the NMC had notified guidelines on the Implementation of Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) in all medical colleges/standalone PG institutions regulated by NMC.
NMC has been receiving several complaints regarding the non-transfer of AEBAS attendance IDs in cases of transfer/ appointment of employee from one Medical College (MC)/ institute to another. This is leading to difficulties in marking attendance of such employees and other issues.
The NMC urges the relevant stakeholders to strictly comply with the provisions relating to blocking and transfer AEBAS IDs and avoid undue delays in complying therewith.
If any MC/ institute is found to be not transferring AEBAS IDs of employees/ faculty who have joined another MC/ institute by way of resignation or transfer, strict action will be taken against the erring institute which may include de-recognition, denial in increase of UG/PG seats, and the like.
