Dibrugarh University adopts cashless transactions in every financial and business conduct. Now the students of the University can pay their fees online through an e-payment gateway available on the Dibrugarh University Online Services Portal (https://dibru.online). Through this online portal the students can also keep track of their payment history and find notifications on time regarding their dues. Now it easy for the Finance and Accounts Branch of the University to easily prepare fee payment report and detect any payment defaulter within a minute with the single click of a mouse. The University is also making provision for other stakeholders to make online payment through the same portal. In fact, from the academic session 2016-2017, the University has been using online Application Submission System for Admission, Convocation and Research Admission Test(DURAT) where payment gateway is integrated to enable online payment. Now, no candidate has to come to the University campus and stand in Bank or department’s queue while applying for admission. This process has reduced a lot of paper work on the part of the University and made the system more efficient, accurate and transparent. The most important and unique feature of the Online Payment System adopted by Dibrugarh University is that neither the stakeholder nor the University has to pay any transaction charge while paying through online modes like credit card, debit card, Internet Banking etc. As a result of an agreement between the Payment Gateway Provider, the Bank and Dibrugarh University, the transaction charges fixed by RBI for online transactions have been totally waived off for Dibrugarh University and all its stakeholders.
Dibrugarh University has also hired a few Point of Sale (POS) terminals from Punjab National Bank and State Bank of India to accept payment through cards at selected locations. Thus with the implementation of Online Portal and POS terminals, the university is aiming for 100% cashless transactions in its financial and business conducts within a few days.
