Union Home Secretary A K Bhalla on Friday said the electronic-human resource management system (e-HRMS) will become a good and effective tool for all ministries in times to come. Releasing a progress report of the system, he said that the application of artificial intelligence tools will greatly help in policymaking and in the handling of matters related to personnel. Bhalla said that there is a need to popularise the system in other ministries for its use in a comprehensive manner, a statement issued by the Personnel Ministry said.
