The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), the umbrella organisation for all retail payment systems in the country, has initiated a first-of-its-kind ‘e-Payments Literacy Workshop’ in West Bengal.
The workshop was carried out in six centres at Kolkata, Murshidabad, Jalpaiguri, Coochbehar, Burdwan and Howrah.
The event was simultaneously hosted by NPCI representatives in 28 states at 120 centres and supported by 56 Regional Rural Banks.
Participants at the workshops were familiarised with the customs of ATMs and its features such as cash withdrawal, balance enquiry, mini statement enquiry, and so on, NPCI said in a release.
Consumer redressal advice and other precautionary tips on PIN change and funds transfer were also demonstrated. Security tips such as mobile number registration, seeding Aadhaar with bank, and the LPG subsidy process were also presented.
Payments solutions through RuPay cards at PoS, e-comm, ATMs, and channels were encouraged along with NPCI customer-friendly funds transfer services.
