Demonetisation will make India shine like gold: PM Modi

In a bid to make India a cashless economy, Prime Minister on Monday directed his senior ministers to enlighten the people about merits of using and other digital payment methods.

The renewed push to make India less reliant on hard currencies came a day after the prime minister exhorted the people to use debit cards and other digital payments while purchasing essential items.

According to government sources, the prime minister asked his ministers to start the promotion of cashless economy with their own staffs followed by their Ministry and then constituency to appeal to larger masses.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley also spoke to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar amongst the others to form a sub-committee to give impetus to a cashless economy.

In the 26th edition of Mann Ki Baat programme, Prime Minister Modi said, "I know cashless economy is different. Why not move towards a cashless society? Need your physical support in this. I took this decision for the country's poor, farmer, labour, deprived and for those who are suffering. I reiterate that I need your support; I am positive that you will help me in this; take a pledge that you will be a part of this cashless economy."

The prime minister also stated that there has been 300 per cent increase in the use of Rupay card since the poor people started using it.
