BHUBANESWAR: East Coast Railway (ECoR) and State Bank of India (SBI) on Monday conducted an awareness drive at the Bhubaneswar railway station to sensitize the passengers about the benefit of cashless transaction.
The SBI officials educated the train passengers and rail users about mobile wallet app 'State Bank Buddy' through which a user can shop online, book movie tickets and hotels and send money instantly to anyone on his mobile phone book.
The app can be downloaded from Google play store or Apple play store and install it on smart phone. The user
has to add money from his/her bank account to the mobile wallet before using it, said an officer.
SBI has opened a stall at the station through which common people can get knowledge about cashless transaction. It was inaugurated by ECoR general manager Umesh Singh in the presence of B V G Reddy, chief general manager, SBI, Bhubaneswar.
Reddy said there is a need to popularize State Bank Buddy and other such mobile wallet schemes which are now being used by small merchants and even by street vendors. More such awareness drives will be taken up in near future at important places all over the state to promote less-cash society, he added.
"Bhubaneswar station has wi-fi facility and a lot of public are using it. This was found to be an excellent platform for launching awareness drive," said a railway officer, adding, "Railways will extend all cooperation to open such stalls at wi-fi enabled Cuttack, Puri and Visakhapatnam station."
The passengers can ask questions to the bank representatives at the stalls about use of mobile wallet and online transactions.
ECoR general manager said this is a public welfare and social awareness project where ECoR has taken the lead and offered full cooperation to SBI keeping in mind the government's policy to move towards a less-cash society.
