Amritsar: A workshop on Integrated Payment System (IPS) was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in the auditorium of Shri Ram Ashram Public School. Dr Dharamvir Singh, president, Sahodaya; Dr Anita Bhalla, secretary of Sahodaya; Rajiv Sharma, advisor of Amritsar Sahodaya; and other Principals and teachers of over 100 CBSE schools of the city attended the workshop. SRA Principal Dr Vinodita Sankhyan was the resource person. The IPS was introduced by the CBSE for payment-related digital governance in the post-pandemic world. She said the CBSE was setting an IPS for the management and disbursement of various payments to reduce time consumption and false transactions. She said the introduction of normative payment system through IPS would allow automatic calculations which will eradicate the need for human intervention.
