Thiruvananthapuram: In a new directive, the central government has stated that the workers employed under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) will not get wages if they fail to mark digital attendance.

The Centre has directed the MGNREGS joint programme co-ordinator and state mission director to ensure the mandate is adhered to.

Earlier, the government had made it mandatory for all workers to mark attendance via a mobile application, the National Mobile Monitoring System (NMMS).

Apparently, digital attendance is captured twice a day and has to be uploaded along with the geo-tagged photos of the workers.

As per the government, the new system is aimed at ensuring transparency and accountability in workplaces.
