With a view to promote cashless transactions in the State, the Haryana Government has decided to open committed bank accounts of all government schools in the nearest bank branch for payment of fees.
Additional Chief Secretary, School Education Department, P.K. Das said that nodal teacher in each school would download the e-wallet of the bank concerned. Parents or guardians of the students would be motivated to utilise the e-wallet of the same bank to pay the fees. With a view to prevent misuse, provision would be made so that cash could not be withdrawn from this account.
Das said that about 6.5 lakh students of classes IX to X plus two in government schools would be imparted training for carrying out cashless transactions through smartphones and ordinary phones. He said that Assistant Manager of clusters comprising about eight schools would impart training to teachers for downloading digital payment applications and carrying out cashless transactions. These teachers would further impart training to students of classes IX to X plus two who would further teach their family members and neighbours, he added.
