“As per Prime Minister’s instruction Goa has taken lead in it. Yesterday we had a meeting with the bank officials. We have decided to train everyone including a common man about the cashless concept so that by December 30, people will be taught how to use the technology,” he said.

“There will be advertisements released and people will be educated about this concept,” he said, adding Goa will be a model state in the cashless society concept.
