Orissa makes history

Orissa became the first state in the country to start e-payment facility for government employees.With the introduction of this system, salaries and pensions would be credited to their bank accounts without use of cheques and other procedures involved so far. This was facilitated through electronic payment portal of Reserve Bank of India. 
"Though we have been insisting on e-payment by all state governments, Orissa was the first state to do it,” said V Ramchandra Rao, regional director RBI.
