The Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday said that the facility of cashless transaction should be available at temples and other religious places.

After paying obeisance at Mata Mansa Devi Shrine complex at Panchkula, the third day of Chaitra Navratri, he advocated cashless transaction at religious places whether managed by the government or social organisations.

The system of cashless transactions is a new initiative in the country, which has been accepted by the people. It should also be at religious places too, he added.

He also performed yajna (religious offerings) amidst chanting of hymns. Later on, while interacting with the mediapersons, CM said that he offered prayers for prosperity and success of the people of the state.

Three pillars of Digital India vision that is Infrastructure as a service, e-Governance and services on demand and Empowerment of citizens have been entirely adopted and taken forward aggressively in the state. Since 2014, Haryana has taken multiple steps for using technology to increase transparency, reduce delays, decrease corruption and create a progressive state digital economy, he added.

In reply to another question concerning women empowerment, he said that the state government has been encouraging woman to be entrepreneur. Many programmes like Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao (BBBP) programme and opening of woman police stations have been implemented to empower women.
