“Gram panchayats have already been advised to accept payments through the digital system using G-Pay, PhonePe, Paytm, BHIM, and RuPay. Swiping machines have also been given to gram panchayats so that people can pay through it,” he added.
Stating that people should emphasize digital payments with security measures, the CEO said that arrangements have already been made to have network facilities at the headquarters of 155-gram panchayats in the district.
He thanked Canara Bank for providing digital payments without any service charges and for providing digital payment resources.
