Nagpur: University Grants Commission (UGC) has been making every effort to make all the universities in country to become cashless. But Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) students have not yet gone cashless as long queues are seen at the cash counter of the university on Amravati road for paying admission fees or, examination fees. The financial dealings of the students are still in cash. But this is not the case with teaching staff or non teaching staff. They have become cashless.
UGC had given instructions to the varsities to use the bhim app for their financial dealings. Even Nagpur University has received the instructions. And as per the instructions RTMNU has gone cashless and so the salaries are directly deposited in the accounts of the teaching staff, non-teaching staff and officials.
It may be mentioned that even before the instruction came from UGC the RTMNU had already been depositing the salaries of the staff in their bank accounts.
It is only problem with the students who are yet to go cashless as they are not paying their fees online. About this problem Vice-Chancellor Dr Siddarth Vinayak Kane said that Nagpur University has become 100 per cent cashless in its financial dealings. There are some students who are not using the app for online payment of fees and can be seen at the cash counter to pay their fees. The students cannot be sent back. But slowly we are encouraging them to become cashless.
