SHOPIAN AUGUST 03: The District Development Commissioner Shopian, Owais Ahmed, convened a meeting with bankers and line departments to review the implementation of the digidhan mission here today.
Chief Planning Officer Shopian, Managers of all J&K Bank units in Shopian, Manager SBI Shopian and other officers of the line department were present on the occasion.
The mission is aimed at promoting a less cash economy and to provide the facility of seamless digital payment to people in a convenient manner.
On the occasion, the DDC said that the digidhan mission will not only work on spreading literacy about online payments but will also undertake promotion of best practices, processes, adoption and on-boarding systems across the ecosystem for a wide and quick uptake.
He said that with this move, the beneficiaries now need not move to the offices for payment and department will directly transfer payment to their already linked bank accounts.
“This step will not only ease out the whole process of disbursing payment to the beneficiaries but also remove the hurdles and makes it paperless besides eliminating delays in payment,” he added.
The DDC said that the measure will usher in much-needed transparency and funds will reach to the real beneficiaries on the ground.
