The event saw many dignitaries such as Mr. Sunil, Director Microsoft, Roshini Kumar CEO- Efee, Mr. Jay Raj, Trustee- BMS Education Institution and Mr. Shiv Kumar, Chairman- ASSOCHAM.
Dr. C Manohar, Dean ISBR urged that all payments cannot be made through card. Sometimes cash payment is also required. He further added,” Instead of saying cashless, you say less cash. People are getting accustomed to cashless payment. In fact, education institutes are also making their campuses cashless.”
To provide the solutions for cashless transactions, Mr. Roshini Kumar, CEO Efee discussed that once the institutions become cashless, it becomes headache for parents to make payments. POS (Point of Sale) equipments are not available so some of the schools are not able to accept debit / credit card. To ease this situation, parents can make payment using Efee online. The due date of next payment is also informed so as to make future payments in time.
Director Microsoft, Mr Sunil spoke about the program developed by the Microsoft to make the educational institutions cashless from nursery to PUC.
