Giving a fresh push to digital transactions in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday gave the motto of ‘yes to digital payment, no to cash”.

Addressing the nation from the Red Fort, Modi said, “We should encourage digital payment. Today also when we go to villages, there are boards at shops saying “Today Cash, Tomorrow Debt”.
