Welspun Group, India’s largest textile and steel conglomerate, initiated the country’s biggest ever three-day digitization drive involving 15,000 of its workers at Anjar plant. The programme was attended by Rajesh Mandawewala, Group Managing Director – Welspun Group, SopanNath, Unit Head, along with 500 team leaders and officials from the regional office of the Textile Commissioner, Ahmedabad, India.

At a mass event, presided by Dr. Kavita Gupta, IAS, Textile Commissioner, Government of India, 500 workers downloaded and installed the RBI’s UPI application and will further be trained on using the application for online transactions in their day-to-day life. Gupta, along with the Welspun team, demonstrated the usage of the application in making purchases, transferring money, paying tuition fees and utility bills. The company will further initiate the rest of 14,500 workers to the digital application in the coming weeks.

The three-day camp saw Welspun workers being made aware of digital mode of payment systems such as Unified Payment Interface (UPI) App, Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), Prepaid Wallets, Cards, Point of Sale (PoS), Aadhar enabled payment transfer system, among others.

“We should at least make a beginning, once we start, we will move ahead with great ease. Twenty years ago, who would have thought that so many mobiles would be in our hands.  Slowly we cultivated a habit and now we can’t do without a mobile. May be a cashless society will assume a similar form. But the sooner this happens, the better it will be,” appealed the Textile Commissioner.
