During the meeting, it was observed that ‘Administrative Management System’ is ‘one- stop solution’ for addressing issues relating to service records of all Government employees and shall be implemented in a phased manner by all departments. Initially, the online module shall be implemented by the General Administration Department and Health and Medical Education Department. However, in order to implement the system, it is essential to have a clean and error free digital library of all the service records, which can be uploaded on the online AMS portal.
