Minister for Panchayat Raj and IT K.T. Rama Rao has warned Secretariat employees against coming late to office, and said severe action will be taken against lax employees. He said biometrics will soon be introduced in the IT department which will also be extended to other departments after the Chief Minister’s approval.

He reminded the promise by employees to work overtime for Telangana’s reconstruction, and said he expected an active role by employees in fulfilling people’s hopes, a press release informed.
