As GAZETTED OFFICERS, you are legally "On-Duty" for 24 hours a day.
Gazetted Officers SHOULD NOT /MUST not have any specific duty hours.
ASK you officer to specify your duty hours, officially, in writing, in the form of CIRCULAR. If he is not a fool he can not legally put it in writing.

There would be a office manual, which says the normal working hours of the office. In case there is no such office manual, the Class 1 officer is within his right, to ask people to mark attendance, whether gazetted or not, as there is another rule which states that minimum working hours in a week is say 35 or 40 hours. That needs to be monitored. The notion of being 24 hours on duty is correct, but that is on call basis in emergent circumstance...Gazetted officers have the responsibility of maintaining high standards of probity and normally attendance is also one of them.

There is no circular issued by DOP&T for marking attendance by Gazetted officers. However, However, if the senior officers has directed to mark attendance daily, there must be some reason. Thus instructions can be given for a short period, but not as a regular practice. Govt. instructions on related subjects may be seen/read on dtf.in.

There is no such a type of order issued by the dopt or central govt till date. many higher officials purposefully enforcing attendance sign to show their powers to maintain punctuality in the office. this kind of action of higher authority may lead to non co-operation after working hours.

That is the reason why people crave for Govt jobs,they do not like to mark attendance,they do not like to observe punctuality,they do not like to o any work,they love to shirk work yet want to enjoy maximum salary with maximum facilities and perks.
