Chandigarh, July 4 (IANS) The Haryana government has issued instructions to all heads of departments to take requisite steps, including provision of incentives, to ensure that all receipts and payments in departments are made digitally.

“In the wake of demonetisation, the state government had initiated a rigorous campaign to achieve the objective of transforming the state into a digital and less-cash economy,” an official spokesman said here on Tuesday.

The measures taken in this direction include deputing senior secretaries in various districts to sensitise field officers and stakeholders such as bankers, traders, merchants and general public to the benefits of digital transactions, he said.

Training programmes are being organised for government employees and PoS (point of sale) devices have been installed in various state government offices across the state in collaboration with the State Bank of India to enable the public to pay fee, challan and fines through debit and credit cards, he added.
