Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said if India cannot achieve the goal of a cashless economy as whole then it should at least try to become ‘a less-cash economy’ to ensure transparency. “Some may say that our country can never become a cashless economy. Even if we don’t become a cashless economy, then our country can at least become a less-cash economy,” Singh said.

He was speaking at the inauguration of the 2nd India International Science Festival, backed by the government’s Ministry of Science & Technology and RSS-linked Vijnan Bharati.

Appealing to the youths to take the message of cashless transactions to people, Singh said the e-payments, e-wallets, mobile phone banking and various other modes of cashless transactions will not only lead to less-cash transactions but also help realise a corruption-free society.
