Dr Senthil Nathan, Director of the College, said: “We are excited about this new initiative. Not only will students have 'anywhere anytime' access to academic information, they will be able to use their phones to make payments on campus.

The electronic wallet is the result of collaboration between HCT and C-Scam, a leader in the mobile payments sector.
