A “muster roll” is essentially a labour attendance register, pertaining to a particular worksite and a particular period (e.g. two weeks). It is also used as a receipt, to claim funds from the Programme Officer for the
payment of wages. Typically, the completion of a particular work would involve several muster rolls. For instance, in Rajasthan each muster roll covers a period of two weeks (called a “pakhwada”) and has space for up to 20 labourers.
Thus, if a worksite has 50 labourers and lasts six weeks, 9 muster rolls would be involved.
Similarly at Cetking we have student muster card to track the number of hours studied on daily basis and record the mock scores.
