Students who are participating in the Prime Minister's movement for a cashless economy will be rewarded with extra credits. The directive was from the Union HRD minister and the University Grants Commission has sent a circular to the higher educational institutions for encouraging the faculty members to educate the students regarding the different modes of digital payments and motivate them to join the initiative.

HRD ministry's Vittiya Saksharta Abhiyan will convince households to go digital. Students of NSS and NCC have been directed to identify the marketplaces and mandis that can be converted into digital marketplaces.

Fr Abraham, pro vice-chancellor, Christ University, said: "Students are capable of taking forward such technological advances. They know this better than us, and can perhaps even teach us the same. It's a good move."

Naveen K Rao, a student of Jain University, said: "This is really good. I think we have been trained enough to use different kinds of gateways for digital payment. To take this to everyone out there is a great move."

Akriti More, a student of Christ University, said: "I'm excited about it. We haven't been given any formal instruction yet, but if this is to happen, then I'm all for it."
