The Human Resourse Ministry has appealed to various higher educational institutes in the country to develop cashless campuses in order to support the government’s digital initiative.
Stressing on digital literacy at the launch of Vittiya Saksharata Abhiyan (VISAKA), Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar urged faculties of the institutes to encourage people to use online platforms for transferring funds.
He also urged the higher educational institutes not to receive fees or make any payments in cash.
“The huge digital transformation that India is undergoing at the moment will bring greater transparency, in eradication of black money and corruption. You will work hard but someone tomorrow may get a job through corruption,” the minister said.
The VISAKA campaign will involve institutions like the IITs, NITs, IIITs, and central universities and colleges to promote cashless economy.
