Last year’s scandalous subjects ‘demonetisation’ & ‘cashless economy’ will be included as chapters in class XII books of The Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE), from next academic session.
RBSE chairman B L Choudhary stated that, students will be taught about ‘cashless system’ and ‘mobile wallet structure’. If the theory of demonetisation is included then it should talk about merits and demerits of the process, feel experts. “It will not be good if it is lopsided. It has to be balanced and should discuss both merits and demerits of demonetisation,” said an expert. Also, the RBSE is bringing about changes in its functioning. RBSE premises in Ajmer, swipe machines have been installed at Vidhyarati Sewa Kendra.“With this, students will be able to obtain certified duplicate copies of their mark sheet and certificates from here by way of ‘cashless system’,” said Choudhary . Explaining it, Mr. Choudhary revealed that students can make the payment for the same using debit or credit cards.Payment made to examiners are already cashless. “Now, the board will make every transaction online through RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement, which is an electronic form of funds transfer),” according to Choudhary. Besides that, RBSE is planning to go online with formalities such as examinations or fee, as per the directions of the state IT department.
