Beltangady, Jan 10: Taking a firm step towards realization of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's plans to make India a cashless society, students of SDM College, Ujire here descended on the streets to create awareness on Digital India and transaction through cashless means.

The awareness campaign, taken up by the students of commerce and business management of the college, saw students visiting a number of shopkeepers and business establishments to explain to them the concept of cashless transactions and urged them to install card payment machines for customers.

The campaign was held with the blessing of Shree Kshetra Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari Dr Veerandra Heggade and with guidance from Harshendra Kumar.

As many as 76 trained students, 700 volunteers and 21 lecturers participated in the campaign.

Nearly 2,000 citizens and business establishments were approached. The pro-people campaign, emphasizing convenience to citizens in doing business, and urging participation of common man in the development of the country, received much appreciation from the public.

    First the students community should practice cashless culture before convincing others because this ewareness otherwise may become a ritual campaign without any substance.

    The students of SDM college Ujjire are doing right thing. Hats off to them. For every cash transactions, customers should demand a proper receipt with sales tax identification number mentioned on it not just a slip on the paper. This ensures that the tax collected from you will be sent to tax department and the income is taxed by IT department. It is your money and you should make should it is paid to the government.

    For major cash purchase, one can send a copy of their receipt to tax authorities to make sure the tax is collected properly.

    To make i India transparent and number one in the world, it is the duty of every citizen to do the right thing and make sure others are also doing the right thing.

    Modi has started a movement which no one else could do in the past. This is our opportunity to support him and make India great in the world.

    Good Idea! However, whether the BANKS PROTECTS THE CUSTOMERS and safeguard online frauds? if yes, How long it will take to get back the money? How many times customers have to go up & down to the bank to recover the online frauds due to the BANK SYSTEM... The fact is Bank always trys their level best to escape from losses.

    What's wrong with Cashless Transaction?
    think that a 100 rupee note is circulated 1,00,000 times it will have the same value and no body get any commission.
    But, if it is circulated through cashless mode, each transaction fetches 2.5% commission that means 1,00,000 times 2.5% = 2500%, i.e. Rs. 2,50,000 (Rs. Two lakhs fifty thousand rupees) to service providers like "Paytm" or "Jio Money" etc. just for hundred rupees. So, it's a perpetual golden egg laying goose gifted to the gang. That's why this is the Mother of All Scams"*
    Very important statistic please read & understand, no politics in this.

    Do you know that:
    1) Debit Cards charge between 0.5% to 1% to the retailer Or money receiver for every transaction.
    2) Credit Cards charge between 1.5%-2.5% to the retailer of the money receiver for every transaction
    3) PayTM/Freecharge/Jio Money and other E-wallets charge 2.5% -3.5% when you want to transfer your e-wallet money into your bank A/c.

    RBI data shows every month around 2.25 lakh crore (anually Rs 25 -30 lakh crore) is withdrawn from ATM's across India. And it is estimated that along with bank withdrawals a total of Rs 75 lakh crore is withdrawn (both banks and ATMs) on a yearly basis. All this is accounted/tax paid money which is withdrawn from banks...Currently just 3% of transactions are in electronic mode.

    If this 75 lakh crore is converted to a cashless economy look at how much the companies will earn...(75 lakh crore * 2% average) i.e. Rs 1.5 lakh crore per year .. NO KIDDING!

    This is the biggest Open Scam. Direct Benefit for Corporates like Reliance, PayTM, Banks etc. of Rs 1.5 lakh crore per year.

    Which makes me wonder was Demonetization done to end black money or was it done to benefit Corporates?

    By paying electronically assures that the proper tax is paid to the government. This is better than increasing the sales/other taxes where only honest merchant will collect and pay it to the government. Sure companies like Paytm will make money, but you are most welcome to buy their shares and make profit for yourself. Consumers will benefit by increased tax collection which will be used for developments. Merchants will benefit by having all white money that they can invest without any fear from IT.

    Dear students, If your parents have the similar small shops, do you suggest the same to your parents.

    It is easy to preach. The practicality is big zero to small vendors except might be for big malls/ big super market / or for franchise.

    Even in UAE, which is much advanced and majority of them use in e card, small grocery shops, small traders, most the small restaurants are dealing only cash.

    For basic facilities, you and everyone has to pay the taxes promptly.

    Going cashless means every income is recorded and people are bound to pay the taxes.

    This exercise is just to fulfill your wish.

    Shame on BJP/Modi government supporters for using innocent school students to justify their failed Demonetisation decision by propagating cashless digital economy for a nation which is at least a decade or more away from being digitally ready.

    Going digital in India requires a lot of preparation infrastucture wise, making the masses digitally literate and enhancing cyber security to the highest standards to protect the hard earned money of citizens and ensuring unscrupulous people cannot dupe illiterate citizens of their savings.

    Well said KT. Let the government first setup the basic necessities like electricity, water and good roads for transportation. I would add that providing good education for all, would go a long way, in having the knowledge to go cashless. Nothing wrong in educating the masses about going cashless, since this will take years to understand and deploy.The masses have to have the belief, that the revenue collected, will be utilized for developing the nation, and not for personal gain of the so called politicians, who were elected by the masses. We are proud of our country as Indians, and we have to make sure, non-indians are proud of our country and citizens when they speak about us. Jai Hind.

    Also explain poor traders that they loose 1.5% to 3.5% as charges service tax from their receipts if they go digital.

    Tell these students to tell their government remove transaction charges & service tax first on digital payments.

    By looking at the appearance of shops and its humble owners faces, I don't think the average value in these shops are big enough to go for cash less transactions.

    Such campaign may be more effective near or at Bar & restaurants, hotels etc.,

    My intuition says that these students in a way innocents.., just a propaganda to hide the sufferings, agony & tears of poor..,

    Bhakt's are all on high or in some kind of hysteria mode...,

    The tears of the poor women & children will never go un punished...., mankind may not deliver it but no one can escape from eternal justice....,
