Students told benefits of cashless transactions

Haridwar, March 20

A workshop on financial awareness and benefits of cashless transactions was organised at Shravan Nath Muth Jawaharlal Nehru College here today.

Rajneesh Saini, delegate of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), apprised students about various modes of digital transaction and also investment. Urging students to prefer digital transactions, Saini said it would lessen dependency on currency notes and would pave the way for financial transparency and accountability.

Sunil Kumar Batra, in-charge of the commerce section of the college, said post demonetisation, the government as well as people have realised the significance of electronic mode of payment and also benefits of cashless transactions. “Though there can’t be fully cashless society, yet we can make it less-cash society. Printing currency notes also put a burden on country’s budget. Besides, through digital transactions, the possibility of black money transactions getting unnoticed or unaccounted is very dim. For a stronger economy and curbing black money, we all need to opt for these digital payment modes,” Batra said.

Coordinator Sanjay Maheswari, Manmohan Gupta, Saraswati Pathak, Birampal Singh Chauhan, Mohan Chandra Pandey, Lata Sharma, Priyanka, Gaurav Jyoti, Ritu Chaudhari, Rinkal Goyal, Vivek Mittal, Punit Sharma, Vineet Saxena, Padmawati Taneja and Poornima Sundriyal also put forth their views. — TNS
