Prime Minister Modi and Government of India have initiated numerous steps to speed-up the development in the country, and one of them is last month’s decision of demonetization to combat the corruption and Black Money.

Demonetization is going to be the milestone in Indian political history, hence there is chaos in oppositions who are opposing the demonetization and they have also blocked the parliamentary proceedings in this session so far, but that is what opposition do and that’s why we are the best democracy in the world.

I support demonetization and by judging the reports on different news channels, most of the citizens have agreed with government’s decision and they are supporting demonetization even when they are facing many difficulties in their daily life because of the unavailability of cash.

Incentive, Cashback, Lucky Draw etc. are the familiar methods to promote and encourage people to adopt the changes, but we have seen such offers only from the private companies; what if the government will give you the incentive that also as much as ₹ 1 crore to go cashless?

The government of India has launched the schemes for both consumers and merchants in order to incentivise digital payments and its called ‘Lucky Grahak Yojana’ and ‘Digi Dhan Vyapar Yojana’. According to the CEO of NITI Aayog, both of the schemes will cover small transactions between Rs 50 and Rs 3,000 to encourage every section of the consumers and merchants to move to digital payments.
