Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The HRD ministry is preparing a plan to encourage educational institutions to go for cashless transactions and also to create awareness among the public regarding ways to make payments.

Prakash Javadekar today chaired a meeting of top ministry officials and heads of Boards and Councils associated with his ministry and reviewed steps to encourage cashless transactions.



"All Institutions have been asked to encourage & ensure cashless transactions are done through debit/credit cards,online

transfers,RTGS, cheques," Javadekar said in a tweet.

In another post he added that directions have already been given to all educational institutions to encourage and ensure cashless transactions.

Yesterday, in his 'Mann ki Baat' address to the nation Prime Minister Modi had urged the youth to go to ten families and small businessmen and teach them how to use mobile technology to carry out transactions which, he said, were "safe and secure."

Such drives should be carried out in schools, colleges, NCC and NSS, Modi had said, adding that the "youths are agents of change".
