New Delhi: Goa is set to become the first Indian state to go cashless from December 31, as people will be able to buy perishables such as fish, meat, vegetables by just click of a button on their mobile phones.
To avail this service, custmors will have to dial *99# from their mobile phone and follow the instructions to credit money to vendors who do not own swipe machines. The money on purchases will be debited to the person’s account.
In order to make this move successful, the govt is conducting a drive to create awareness among masses on how to operate the cashless transactions.
