The Delhi Police is trying to do its bit to promote a “cashless economy” by teaching its officers how to use e-wallets. On Tuesday, about 100 police officers in New Delhi district attended an hour-long session, where they were taught how to use the State Bank of India’s Buddy e-wallet.

A senior police officer said the session was held as e-wallets have not really caught on in the police community. “We decided to make them familiar with the use of e-wallet. A special session was held, for which 20 police personnel from each police station in New Delhi district were called,” the officer said.
