Bifurcation exercise begins @ 12 lakh govt staff?
State Government employees in the secretariat are busy filling up forms of their profiles with adhar card nos etc and also nativity( place of birth etc).
The huge exercise is the only operation in almost every office of the secretariat ahead of the Christmas and new year. Finance secretary P V Ramesh today clarified that this was not a bifurcation exercise but only a digitization exercise.
However the chief secretary had gone on record only last week that all the 17 key departments in the government have been directed to give total data on the staff profile and all other assets etc. 'So far 12 lakh permanent and 4 lakh outsourcing staff are being digitized' says Ramesh.
