Never mind the Centre's massive campaign to popularise digital money, cash operations are going on unabated in its own backyard. Officers of the Delhi Traffic appear to have completely opted out of the 'demonetisation to cashless' drive. as the force is conducting business as usual in the national capital, issuing spot challans and collecting penalties only in cash.
Watch this video in which an assistant sub-inspector of Delhi Traffic Police refuses to accept a debit card and says he will take the fine only in cash. He also says that there are two card-readers on their challan machine that were installed long ago but none of them work.
Shockingly, the officer also says that all machines in the city are like this one and nowhere are spot fines being accepted through any means other than cash.
So much for the digital push!
