According to attendance.gov.in portal that publishes attendance statistics of over 500 offices under various departments and ministries in the capital, about 88,900 employees had marked their presence as of 5 pm. About 3,540 employees had reached office by 8am. The odd-even rule remains in force between 8am and 8pm. The attendance rose to 20,317 by nine before crossing the 80,000-mark around 10.30am. The presence graph showed sharp falls after 5pm dropping below 70,000-mark by 5.30 pm.
The number was slightly higher than attendance numbers reported on previous Monday, when 78,900 employees marked attendance. However, it was less than Friday, when only cars with odd numbered registration plates were allowed on road.
While the attendance number stayed around the 75,000-mark between December 29 and 31, it had shot up to 94,105 on January 1. Business Standard summed up the previous week's data from the line graphs on the portal that gave separate numbers reported through tablet based devices and PC-based devices. For example, on January 1, tablet-based attendance was 77,542 and PC-based attendance was 16,563 adding up to 94,105.
