A 20-year-old girl from Maharashtra's Latur has won Rs one crore under the 'Lucky Grahak Yojana' scheme, which aims at promoting cashless transactions.
Under the 'lucky draw' scheme, Shraddha Mohan Mengshette, a second year student of Electrical Engineering from Latur, emerged as the winner of the reward.
She was felicitated by Prime Minister Modi in Nagpur.
"I was informed two days ago that I have won a Rs one crore cash prize and would be felicitated for the same by the Prime Minister during his visit to Nagpur on Friday. I don't know where to spend the money that I will receive. Never thought of I would win such a huge amount. I will not spend the money for some time as I want to finish my studies first," Shraddha said.
Her father, Mohan Mengshette, owns a small grocery shop, while her mother is a housewife.
The two incentive schemes, 'Lucky Grahak Yojana' and 'DigiDhan Vyapar Yojana' ended after a 100-day information, education and communication campaign led by NITI Aayog to make digital payments a mass movement in India.
