Bhubaneswar: In a bid to further streamline the HR management in Government offices, the Odisha General Administrative (GA) Department has developed an online leave management module for regular employees that will come to effect from January 1 next year.
As part of the initiative, state Government employees will have to apply for leaves online and records will no longer be maintained manually. The employees can submit their leave applications by logging on to the official website of Human Resources Management System (HRMS). Concerned officials can also approve the applications through HRMS, an application software to carry out personnel transaction of Government employees.
Once accepted, details of employees’ leaves will be updated in the HRMS and shown in the e-service book and payroll . After January 1, no leave application will be accepted on offline mode, said an official.
Moreover, the state Government has decided to pay the full amount of pension money to employees on the day of their retirement. This will be executed after March 31, 2020 and online pension module has been prepared to keep all records regarding employees’ information. All departments have been directed to prepare e-service book and manual service book of their respective establishment employees by December 31, 2019 for the same.
