    • Organized by:DCB Bank
    • Date: 4th Nov 2017
    • Venue:NASSCOM, Bangalore

    Five students from the Department of MCA, participated in the Fintech hackathon organized by DCB Bank.

    The problem statement given was,to find a solution to rural areas where online transactions are difficult. The solution provided by our students follow in their own words:

    We can make the transaction easier and smooth for a farmer by completely finishing the entire transaction process with a single action and also make it Offline. The OCP (Offline Cashless Payment) is such mechanism which helps the farmer to experience a seamless transaction. In our project, every farmer will be having a card in which, points will be added at the starting of every month based on his salary, by the employee of the bank who visits the farmer at the starting of every month. Our idea flows in this way: Farmer gives card to the merchant, Merchant enters the unique Id then checks for the fingerprint authentication of the farmer and if it matches, then the purchase amount will be deducted from the farmer’s card and the merchant receives the amount and returns the card to the farmer.


    The judges suggested us to improve upon the following areas of our idea:

    • Updating of the farmer’s card
    • Work on authentication of bank employee who visits the farmer’s on monthly basis to update his card
    • Work on voice recognition of the farmer so that the bank employee who visits the farmer at the starting of every month cannot cheat the farmer.
