India’s Minister of Textiles Smriti Irani and another minister Jitendra Singh launched Monday the United Payments Interface (UPI) cashless payments at Purbashree stall at Dilli Haat, INA in Delhi.

After the inauguration, Jitendra Singh said that he is happy to inaugurate the cashless sale facility at Purbashree stalls.

He informed that e-vending system has been introduced for the first time at North-East stalls (Purbashree Stall) in Dilli Haat, INA and it will be taken up by other stalls also. He also said that this New Year, the theme at the Dilli Haat, INA will be based on North East.

Jitendra Singh said that he is thankful to Smriti Irani who had advised to beautify the stalls and to showcase the ethnicity of all North East states to attract the customers. This will help the people outside North East realise the ethnicity and culture of North east.

The cashless sales facility introduced at Purbashree stall is in line with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign for cashless transactions following demonetization, he said.

Following Modi’s demonetization decision taken on November 8, there is an acute shortage of currency notes in India. So, cashless transactions are being promoted in the country.

Modi had removed currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 from circulation, saying that the step has been taken to check corruption and stop the flow of black money.

Jitendra Singh said that the facility at Dilli Haat will be helpful for the small traders and their trade will be promoted.

In the UPI mode, customers will be able use their bank gateway apps and pay directly against purchases to the accounts of Purbashree from their mobiles.
