KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission (IARCSC) has begun registration biometric data of all civil employees, a process which would be completed and help better human resource planning, according to a statement on Sunday.

“Registration and storing accurate information of civil service officers in a central information system helps better human resources planning and employment anticipation,” the source said.

The system also registers email address, phone number, educationinfo-icon level, education field and information about the job.

The statement said an officer’s fingerprint, retinal ID and photo would be also registered in the HRIMS.

Based on this system, name, nickname, father’s name and bank account number would be added to the officer’s bank card and that information would be synched with payment system of the Ministry of Finance, the source said.

It said only eligible civil service workers would be able to receive their salaries and ghost sources of money receivers would be stopped.

Ahmad Nader Naderi, IARCSC head, said, “We needed comprehensive and effective systems for better planning, economic and social development in the country as well as provide stable procedure for information system,”

He said the problems civil service officers faced in traditional systems would not resolved with the new information system.

Creation of HRIMS is a significant development in Afghanistan’s civil and state administration that makes the country standardized in this specific area, he said.
