The rest is online or by using the card.

She spends most of her day on travel meetings.

She uses an app to book a taxi and uses her e-paymentwallet.

The meeting place is mainly a coffee shop or restaurant where she uses a credit card.

Most of her other transactions, such as mobile, broadband, satellite TV, credit cards, groceries, off-site travel and shopping, are done online.

She pays cash for her family.

Best of all: he has given up queuing up to pay utilities as before.

Earlier, he would pay with his home computer.

Now he has downloaded the bank\'s app on his smartphone and used it to pay the bill.

When his boss is away, he will also be addicted to buying online on the office computer.

Going to the mall on weekends and going to the premium restaurants is paid by credit card.

On his way back to his home in Mehrauli, south of Delhi, from his office in Connaught, central Delhi, he remembers that the next day was his wedding anniversary.

He made a detour to the south extension market and bought earrings, which his wife had pointed out to him when they were shopping in the market earlier.

Again, his trust card saved him for paying the bill.

His last stop in the evening was his neighbor\'s mother\'s dairy farm, where he purchased a daily milk quota and paid with the card recently issued by the dairy farm owner.

Overall, he hardly uses any cash during the day, except for snacks or tea he occasionally eats in the office canteen.

For him, life became almost cashless.
