In a letter to the schools, CBSE secretary Joseph Emmanuel said that the benefits of cashless transactions are enormous and the CBSE has brought e-payment facilities for collection of examination fee, affiliation and various activities including payments to its examination functionaries.
"The Board has been directing its affiliated schools to disburse salary to staff through bank transfers. Further, with a view to reduce cash transactions at school, all CBSE affiliated schools shall introduce fee collection from students only online or through non-cash mode from the next quarter commencing from January, 2017 onwards," he said.
The schools have also been asked to promote cashless transactions and motivate students to do the same by creating awareness among people about it.
