"We are 75 percent digital and now we will complete the rest 25 per cent. Already admission fee was being accepted through digital means, now even library fines will be cashless. Even a rupee of fine would have to be paid through machines," Principal Fr Felix Raj, told IANS.

The same rules would apply to the new St. Xavier's University as well.

"Students would be issued rechargeable prepaid cards to pay for their on-campus activities including canteen transactions. Other options are Paytm, card swiping and net banking," he added.

The 100 percent cashless mode would officially begin in the forthcoming academic session in July.
