Study Circle - Bharat Bill Payment System
CashlessConsumer runs a fortnightly series of deep dive sessions on the technology powering payments, policy implications and real-world practice of digital payments. A study circle is a collaborative classroom to learn in detail about a particular topic. Unlike a presentation/seminar, while there will be anchors presenting, the idea is to learn collaboratively like a classroom setup. We will be sharing reading materials to registered atendees who are encouraged to read it prior to joining the session. Do raise your hands anytime during the session if you have a question/comment.
