As the first step, a seminar was conducted on the need for adopting cashless payment mechanisms and highlighting the need to popularize these among the various vendors in Technopark. The campaign was organized by Vivekananda Study Circle (VSC), charitable society working among the techies. The seminar was chaired by Technopark CEO Hrishikesh Nair and enlightened by eminent chartered accountant Ranjith Karthikeyan. Also Digital banking Ambassadors like Venkitaraman (General Manager, SBT IT), Kiran Bhasi (PayTM), Praveen Prakash (HDFC) from various banking and payment organizations also participated in the seminar.

Speakers at #CashlessTechnopark Campaign

Technopark CEO urged the vendors within Technopark to adopt cashless payment mechanisms and offered all possible help to enable them for the same. Eminent chartered account Ranjith Karithikeyan who delivered the key-note speech pointed out that we cannot continue the cash based transactions for long and it is high time that people realize this and adopt cashless means. He not only urged the techies to learn the cashless payment modes, but also to educate at least 10 others living in and around society where they live. He also requested the Technopark CEO to start a campaign to educate the small-scale vendors in various markets in Trivandrum like Palayam, Pangode, Chala etc., by making use of the brand value that techies carries. Representatives of various banks also shared the opinion that cashless transactions are the need of the hour and that the current service charges for digital transactions would come down once the number of digital transactions increase. They also raised concern that cashless payments have not picked up even in a place like Technopark where more than 50,000 IT professionals are working.  Seminar was followed by a question and answer session in which the banking and PayTM representatives answered the queries of the techies and various vendors within Technopark.

As the next step in enabling Technopark for cashless transactions, VSC is planning for a training program for the different vendors and shop employees within Technopark on how to use the various Digital payment mechanisms that are available in market like PayTM, SBI Buddy, UPI etc. in collaboration with the banking and other financial organizations. Also VSC is planning to provide training to the techies who are interested to become the ambassadors of cashless payments, for enlightening the shops in around Technopark and Kazhakoottam. VSC welcomed all the techies who are interested to be part of this cashless payment initiative and urged them to reach out to VSC volunteers.
