Catch 'em young, is an age-old technique that demonetisation devotees in the ruling dispensation seem to be well aware of.
From the next academic session, the Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE) will include 'Cashless Economy' and 'Demonetisation' in its Class 12th syllabus.
RBSE Chairman BL Choudhary said that the students will also be taught about 'mobile wallet structure' and 'cashless system'. Some experts however have said that if the theory of demonetisation is going to be included in the syllabus, it should throw light on both the merits and demerits of the process.
"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. The Rajasthan Board is also bringing about changes in its functioning meant to encourage cashless transactions. It has installed swipe machines at the Vidyarthi Sewa Kendra on the RBSE premises in Ajmer.
"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, adding that students could pay using debit or credit cards.
"Now, the board will make every transaction online through RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement, which is an electronic form of funds transfer)," Choudhary also said. As part of its reforms, the RBSE is also planning to go online with examination formalities as per the directions of the Rajasthan IT department.
