Lucknow's KGMU to soon introduce cashless transactions!

King George Medical University in Lucknow will soon roll out the facility of cashless transactions in a bid to streamline its payment system. As per reports, a single deposit card will be issued for all patients, which will save them from the hassle of making multiple payments at different counters. The card will instantly be generated after the payment has been made and once the treatment is complete, any unused amount will duly be returned to the cardholder.

"If the cashless system is implemented, payments will not have to be made at every counter. Instead, a one-time payment will be done on the patient's ID. After that money will be deducted from this and then it will not bother the attendants", said Dr. Sudhir Singh KGMU spokesperson.
