Entertainment & Fun  

Even as maximum Amdavadis are blessed with a nearly inborn business acumen, nobody can deny the reality that the enterprise savvy minds of Amdavadis may be inspired by means of meals and paisa-vasool purchasing alternatives. in spite of everything who would not like to bask in a few pocket-friendly shopping moments and ingesting out? After November eight, 2016's DeMo, agencies at each scale and at each level took successfully. With 'going cashless' being the need of the hour, the average Amdavadi has started using diverse modes of electronic payments. but, the question here is that during this moment of coins no longer without difficulty being available are safe keepers surely using e-wallets and are open to e-bills? We find out extra:

Mixed Bag:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been urging Indians to head cashless and choose virtual modes of a price. Surprisingly in his home kingdom, there are many street store-food laari owners who are dealing best in cash. "We only receive cash payments and haven't switched to other modes of e-payments yet. the main motive is even after the complete demonetization situation, maximum clients nonetheless favor to pay with cash," says Ja Bhai, a material dealer at regulation garden adding, "first of all we did attempt the usage of electronic modes, but there have been times when because of connectivity problems, the apps could paintings gradual or completely close down. And while the price receives delayed we lost on other clients just to get proper the e-payments."
but, the heartening information is that a lot of lerries are open to numerous modes of electronic payments. Rahul Vyas who owns food laari stocks, "We keep both alternatives open. also, put up DeMo, most customers are keen on paying their bills thru e-payments. In a case of coins transactions, getting the trade for brand new notes is hard for us."

considered one of the most important motives why many store keepers are still stuck to receiving payments in coins is due to the fact lots of them do no longer have proper financial institution money owed. The money in these e-wallets apps are normally transferred both through debit playing cards or are linked to 1's financial institution account.

Mira Bhai Bhutiya stocks, "We nevertheless haven't any right financial institution bills so how can someone count on us to have e-wallets? additionally, we were dealing in coins payments for years and want to stick to this method."

Customers' take on e-payments:

Although the situation has improved a lot since November 8, 2016 (post DeMo) there are many who do not want to spend their cash on small trivial things and are now saving cash for contingencies. Monica Shingala, a city based professional admits, "Now when we come for shopping, we come with limited cash. Also, the number of places that accept e-payments has increased.

There are high-end food stalls at various places in the city that accept e-payments. While it is a little slow, soon even street shopping will become cashless."

And in the midst of all this, it is difficult to ignore the trend of online shopping. With every website offering varied discounts and sales, many prefer to shop online only, asserts Meghna Vyas, a content writer. "I used to do street shopping quite regularly. But since DeMo, I have gone slow on street shopping and prefer online as online payments are user-friendly.

I did try shopping on street with e-wallets, but most of the shopkeepers either do not have an access to the apps or do not have bank accounts or there's always some kind of network issues which leads to delay in the payment process."
Well, even though talks of digital India and cashless economy gather momentum. the process will take its own sweet time to realise.
