Subject: – Regulations governing calculation of Biometric (AEBAS) Attendance of CITS trainees of session 2022-23

1. For NSTIs/ Govt. ITOTs (Rohtak, Bhopal, Davangere, Malavalli, Lucknow and Talchar)/ Pvt. ITOTS – All those CITS trainees of session 2022-23 having Biometric attendance 60% and above would be eligible for appearing in AITT (CITS) to be held in July-August 2023. The number of working days, after deduction of standard holidays, is fixed at 213 days. Therefore, the trainees should have minimum 128 days (60% of 213) of Biometric attendance for them to be eligible for AITT. This is applicable for all trainees, including late admitted ones also, assuming that extra classes must have been conducted for these late admitted trainees on Saturdays.

2. For newly formed Govt. ITOTs in session 2022-23 (list attached at Annexure 1) – As a one-time relaxation, the criteria for eligibility of CITS trainees of session 2022-23 admitted to newly formed Govt. ITOTs as regards biometric attendance is as follows:- 80% offline attendance counted up to 14th July 2023, starting from 31st October 2022 or date of admission of the trainee, whichever is earlier AND Minimum 80 days of Biometric attendance on AEBAS portal

3. On-the-job-training (OJT) If the trainees have attended OJT in some organization/industry, physical attendance marked for the number of days present for OJT will be considered to the extent of maximum 26 working days for calculating the attendance eligibility of the trainees. However, the same should be supported by relevant documents of tie up with Industry for OJT, such as MoU.

4. If, on some occasions, Biometric attendance cannot be marked for any reason such as poor or no internet connectivity, machine out of order, etc., for reasons beyond control of the Institute, it is expected that the Institutes must have maintained offline records of trainees’ attendance on such days. This offline attendance can be considered, only to an extent of 10 working days for the trainees who have attended on these days. The Principal/HoO of the Institute may validate such physical attendance records.

5. Few trainees have not been able to mark biometric attendance for a certain period due to some issues such as skin problem, Aadhar update in progress, etc. For such trainees, the Principal/HoO of the Institute may validate their physical attendance in the said period in which it was impossible for the trainee to mark biometric attendance in spite of being physically present, after due verification of genuineness of every such case. The same may be forwarded to the respective RDSDE for further scrutiny. If found alright, the RDSDE, while forwarding the list of eligible trainees, may include the names of these trainees as well.

6. In spite of all the above, if some trainees are having biometric attendance below the prescribed applicable criteria, they may be allowed to appear in the next examination along with the Supplementary exam trainees. These trainees would have to attend remedial classes.

7. Role of RDSDES – All NSTIs/Govt. and Pvt. IToTs are required to send the final eligibility status of their trainees to the respective RDSDES, who would then verify the same before forwarding it to this Division for further needful action.
