Availability of PoS machines to improve in coming days: Ram Vilas Paswan
The availability of point-of-sale (PoS) machines for cash transaction will improve in the coming days, Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said on Saturday.
"There are infrastructure issues with regard to PoS machines. But the situation will definitely improve in the coming days. More PoS machines would be made available," Paswan told reporters after making a digital payment for purchase of juice at a shop outside Udhyog Bhawan.
The minister made a payment of Rs 50 for the juice using his debit card.
He is also planning to visit many shops on Sunday in his constituency Hajipur in Bihar to check if cashless transactions are happening smoothly or not.
Paswan further said the cashless transaction is a transparent process and checks evasion of tax.
"More consumers should adopt the digital mode of payment. I am sure, this will be successful," he added.
