The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) organised a workshop on cashless transactions at the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya hospital on Sunday.
Mayor Shyam Sharma, who inaugurated the workshop, said:”Such transactions are secure, safe and easy. One may transfer money with the help of the new system within no time. I request the officials and employees of the hospital to adopt technology for such transactions.” He also instructed the hospital to put in place the infrastructure for cashless transactions.
The hospital staffers were educated about the use of six means of cashless transactions — debit cards, credit cards, prepaid cards, Unified Payment Interface (UPI), Aadhar-enabled payment systems, and electronic wallets.
Several doubts regarding the security of cashless transactions were clarified. “We were told about the government’s vision of cashless economy. The professionals trained us in different modes of money transaction. It is very necessary for government hospitals to have an effective system for cashless transactions,” said Ravi Kumar, who attended the workshop.
Besides, a set of short films on the technology related to cashless transactions was also screened at the workshop, where Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari was present as well.
Now, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) is planning to organise a workshop to educate the members of all departments regarding e-services.
Senior NDMC official Vijay Prakash Pandey said:”In order to eliminate corruption from public services and to infuse efficiency, as has been envisioned by the Prime Minister, cashless administration should be the goal of all departments.”
The officials and staffers would be given presentation on the cashless system of payment with the coordination of the IT Department, bankers and the Finance Department.
