To encouraging cashless transactions and to make Indian Railways truly digital, Indian Railway has started cashless delivery of meals on train. This would help check overcharging on food items to the passengers, claim the officials. The catering staff members would be given PoS (point of sale) terminal machines and stringent action would be taken against the staff members if they fail to produce the bills against the food purchased, the officers warn.
The Indian railways on Tuesday reported a rise of over 12 per cent in its cashless revenue stream generated from the reserved segment of e-tickets till August, 2017 from the period of 2016-17.
Giving a fillip to digital India push, three stations of Nagpur Division of Central Railway have started cashless transactions.
Bharat Petroleum on Monday said cashless transactions at its outlets have jumped to 26% after November 8 when high value notes were banned, from 10% time before and expects at least half of all transactions to turn cashless by March.
