Under the leadership of Suresh Kumar S B N Vijayakumar Jayanagar Sadashiva PN in the last two days we visited Bangalore Dairy KMF BMTC KSRTC BESCOM for the reality check to find out the measures these departments have initiated post Demonetisation to go cashless to help its consumers.
BMTC ; Mrs Ek Roop Kaur an efficient officer explained the measures her department has taken so far.
All the 7000 buses are now fitted with GPS for real time monitor.
More than 100 POS machines are distributed at monthly pass issuing centres. We understand more than 3 Crores have been collected through it so far
BMTC is coming out with a smart card which can be used as a Debit card and integrated with other services. Money can be topped up to the card as and when required. They expect it to be launched in January which will address the small change problems in BMTC buses.
KMF and Bangalore Dairy is ready to introduce the smart card for their end users which will reduce cash transactions greately. This apart they are in discussion with many E wallets which will be introduced shortly
BESCOM is also coming out with an app where monthly bills can be paid through debit card and RUPay cards. We also suggested them to accommodate BMTC smart card too which the MD agreed immediately
As of now 50% of the Bills are already paid through online. They want to bring 60 lakh consumers who are under ₹1,000 bill category into the online payment system. This they will achieve through the new system they are proposing to introduce.
Individual departments are moving towards cashless transactions on its own. The enthusiastic officers are taking initiatives to adopt the new technology which will help preventing pilferage and reduce cash burden too.
State Government should make mandatory for the government departments where cash transactions made to use common smart card for cashless transactions. This will ease the burden of citizens immensely.
I hope the assured measures will be in place atleast by January end. Any further delay in it the momentum lose steam and the purpose will be lost.
