IPER UG – CSR Community organized an awareness lecture on 9th January 2017 under the Vittiya Saksharta Abhiyaan for students to become familiar with digital banking and cashless transactions.

Student coordinators Ms. Aakansha Rajput and Mr. Abhay Saxena, BBA VI welcomed the guest Mr. Gaurav Agrawal, Cluster Manager, DCB Bank Ltd., Bhopal on behalf of the CSR Community and all IPER UG Students. Floral Welcome of the guest was done by Ms. Rajveer Kaur, BBA IV.

Thereafter Mr. Gaurav was called upon to take over the dais for addressing the students.

Mr. Gaurav in his speech for around an hour spoke on details of the advantages of cash less transactions through various modes of digital banking like e-banking, e-wallets, IMPS, RTGS, NEFT, Credit and Debit Cards, pre-paid cards. He also deliberated on the “VISAKA” program by Ministry of HRD, GOI. He said that through this program, “every market, small shopkeepers, Kiosks and consumers can make payment to the seller without handling cash, this system will not only account each and every transaction, but will also reduce the Black Money circulation from the system”. Students are the best platform to start this abhiyaan and can make it successful if everyone adopts cash less modes of payments, he said. Mr Gaurav informed that it is not necessary for anyone to have smart-mobile phone or internet connection to effect cash less transaction, USSD from a normal mobile phone can effect such payments by sending SMS to the Bank which will them complete the process within real time.
