Vittiya Saksharata Abhiyan Prakash Javadekar, the Union Minister for Human Resource Development, on 1 December 2016 launched ‘Vittiya Saksharata Abhiyan’. The Abhiyan aims at making people aware about the cashless economic system.

The programme was launched in line to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal to youth in Mann Ki Baat, where Prime Minister called for making people aware about digital economy and cashless modes of transactions.

For creation of a cashless economy, Javadekar appealed to the faculty and especially young students to come forward and join Vittiya Saksharata Abhiyan. They, the youth and teachers, can help in encouraging people around them to use a digitally enabled cashless economic system for transfer of fund.

For participation of youth and faculty, HRD Minister also launched a webpage where students can register themselves. They can also provide their feedback and suggestions on the initiative as well as upload the progress of their work.

Comment: At present, India is undergoing transformational shift towards digital economy and youth can be an agent of change in this process of transformation.

Besides, the HRD Minister also appealed to higher education institutes to receive nothing in cash (fee/fines/deposits) and pay nothing in cash (wages/salaries/vendor payments). He asked these institutions to develop a cashless campus (canteens/covering shops/services).
