    The Delhi government has asked all its departments to make electronic payments to suppliers, contractors, and institutions if the order value exceeds Rs 5,000.

    In the memorandum, the department has asked that payments should be made to contractors, suppliers and institutions through Real-Time Gross Settlement Systems (RTGS), National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) and Electronic Clearing Service (ECS).

    "It has been decided to implement the instructions (of the Union Finance Ministry)...in the departments, autonomous institutions, public sector undertakings and Corporations of Government of NCT of Delhi.

    "Accordingly, all payments to the suppliers, contractors, grantee/loanee institutions etc. above Rs 5,000 may be made through electronic mode i.e RTGS, NEFT and ECS with immediate effect," the Finance Department said in the memorandum.

    The city administration's move comes in line with the Centre's decision to promote digitisation of payments following the announcement of demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes on November 8.

    Earlier this month, the Centre had lowered the threshold for making such payments from Rs 10,000 to Rs 5,000, a move that was aimed at attaining the goal of complete digitisation of government payments. Read Also: Pay Digital And Get Cashback From Dec 25
