Hello everyone,

Thank you so much to the jury panel for providing us such a emerging topic.

I believe there are far more benifits of cashless economy as compared to its flaws.

Cash in itself carries a risk; including from the risk of theft, risk of tearing up, risk of fade out, risk of carrying, risk of loss, risk of transmiting disease, etc. The cashless economy will help us to get rid of all these risks. People don't need to carry a bundles of cash with them, they don't have to worry about theft, loss, fade out, and tearing of cash. Also in current pendamic situation, cashless economy will save us from transmiting the disease through cash. All the parties involved in transaction will get benifit from cashless economy.

Hello friends.

It is modern era and now all things are updating with a new technology which not only saves our time but also reduce our tension. A cashless economy is one of the best ideas. It has many advantages. Firstly, it saves our time now we don't need to stand up in the long queue for deposit and withdraw money. It also reduces the tension of being robbed. There is no need to carry notes with us because of ATMs, credit cards etc. Replace cash. It is safe and easy to carry. Now transactions become easy with online payment within seconds to any part of the country or world. But it requires some knowledge of using technology. In rural areas, there is often remain the problem of network. There remains the fear of being hacked if we don't follow all rules and regulations.

At last, I want to say that it has more advantages than disadvantages so the awareness should be increased so that all people take benefit of it.

Thank you.

Every coin has two sides, so first I speak about merit. It is very process like it take nearly 5sec to transfer money.

Second pointed it solve problem of chain. Like I have 500 rs note and I want to purchase 20 rs product it create problem for shopkeeper to give me chain.

Third point it help government to track money. And stop illegal activities.


Firstly, The technology is new and evolving. So there is lot of people send referral and try to steal your money on app like phone and Google pay.

Second like uneducated parent do not know it properly so they take from their children to transaction. Due to this power comes in children hand due to this some child misuse it.

* Cash requirement will become less and no bourdon of taking care of cash.


* Mainly hacking problem.

We don't need to carry so much money with us. We can do payment also using Google pay, phone pay, Paytm and mobile banking. It is really good and beneficial for us we don't have any fear of theft.

Hello everyone,

According to me, they are both side effect on the people, like merit and demerits. So, first I talk cashless economy is the best thing to growing yourself and learning new things. Like I am purchasing something from somewhere and I don't have the cash to pay so I use of payment mode like Google pay, phone pay, and mobile banking so, if I know how to use then I get benefits of the cashless economy but if I don't know about this process this system how it works and also I don't have a smartphone so I can't get this benefits.

Hello everyone.

In my opinion, going forward to a cashless economy is the right step for the future. It basically means the digitilization of cash. Like every other system out there in the world, even this has its own merits and demerits. It provides a safer method of transaction through secured banking. In the times of covid it also helps in contactless transactions. Digitalized banking opens the door at home services where an individual need not wait at long queues and spend his/her entire day in the bank. Most of the local vendor nowadays are shifting towards cashless transactions which in turn helps them to keep a legitimate, safe and a reliable method to track their incomes.

Despite its merits, there is one big problem right now which will be eventually sorted out in the future is to reach of the program. Not many people are aware or know how to run online banking websites. Many banking sites don't have a very easy user interface which makes online banking a hectic and time consuming process. Although online banking exists there are some processes which require human verification hence we can say that it isn't completley digitalized.

Hello everyone,

A cashless economy is defined as the flow of currency through electronic devices such as debit/credit cards or as the name suggests 'cashless' there is no flow of cash. The cashless economy is having own boon and bean. It is a good initiative taken by the government of India.


A cashless economy is useful for the measurement of the accurate flow of money from one bank to another bank.

It is a useful small scale business where clients can send the money within seconds. Customers need not stand in a long queue where they can pay their bills.

Paperwork has reduced and transparency in economic activities.

It will help in the growth of infrastructure and it very for developing country.

Many platforms like amazon pay, phonepe, google pay make people's life easier. People or customers can't carry valuable things with them.


Cybersecurity is the major drawback of the cashless economy. People who are lack technology with the use of mobile and technology will lead to a big problem.

In my opinion, a cashless economy is a revolution for the country. This is a great opportunity to improve our security in the digital world. Overall view on this topic is going significant change in all financial matter.

Hi everyone.

In my view, cashless economy is a most worthly thing today.

Merits of it include:

- accurate measurement of money in terms of huge amount to being measured. It helps many of us who forgets money at home when we go outside or even if we don't have money in our pocket but in our bank accounts, the cashless way will help us by the available amount in our hands at any time & anywhere. It also protects us from thieves from stealing money as it is riskier because there might be fighting between us and thieves just because of money.

A cashless economy helps the government by giving a calculation of each rupee and avoids the storage of money as like black money which avoids any malpractice related to money.

As a coin has two sides, this concept also has demerits:

Detailed information must be needed to one who has to do cashless or online mode money transaction.

One wrong key will get someone in huge loss Of money.

Deep care must be taken in order to do online transaction i.e. beneficiaries whole information is required.

Password or OTP for this process must be kept secure otherwise it may lead to loss of money.

Sometimes network issue arises in rural areas as it leads to going transactions in pending mode and we have to wait for it to clear the same.

The allover cashless economy will best initiative, troubleless effortless, but with some precautions.

My views on cashless.

In my opinion, a cashless economy is the best option for a developing country. There is less chance of stealing money from the wallet. There is no need to carry money all the time we can use online transaction for payment.

In 2014 online transaction is introducing to the nation. According to the reverse bank of India between 2014 to 2017 online transaction has been done 2000 crore. Rbi also issues the guidelines for the online transaction like do not share your pin with anyone. The cashless economy also restricted corruption and fraud but there are many demerits of the cashless economy like.

Cybercrime is one of the biggest crime problems in a cashless economy many hackers are trying to steal your money if you don't follow the guidelines according to reports some people trying to show fraud transaction to the retailer.

Hello everyone,

I am here to give my opinion on a given topic.

So, first of all cashless economy is a very good initiative taken by the government. As you all know there are always two sides to anything like coins one is positive and the other is negative. So first of all we will see the merits of a cashless economy.


It is a very easy, simple process that doesn't consume much time.
No need to carry much cash with us so there is no tension of robbery safety is achieved.
No worries about change.
Control on black money.
Proof and record of the transaction is maintained.
No need to print cash and thus time and work is saved.
We can give an exact amount to anyone.
No confusion in calculating what amount should we return or got in the market.
Sometimes in the market due to a shortage of change, we are unable to buy something but due to a cashless economy, this problem is resolved.


A strong network connection is required.
Cybercrime is the problem with a cashless economy.
Some chances of frauds are there if we are not alert all time.
In rural areas, some people still don't know how to do mobile banking and internet banking so they can't go with a cashless economy.
But the overall cashless economy is becoming fruitful to digital India.

Hello everyone.

According to my point of view, the cashless economy is the need of today's world as nowadays time is not money but more than money.

Every coin has two sides.

So, the Merits are;

* Time-saving is one of the best benefits in a cashless economy.
* If we take proper care during the transition there is safe payment can be done.
* Otherwise, if you do not take care during simple payment by giving cash there is the possibility of fake people.
* There is many ways of payment like UPI GPay, phone pay, Paytm.


* Cybercrime is happening.
* Fake advertisement.

But if we take a proper care I think it can be avoided.

Ankit said: (Mar 17, 2021)  
Hello everyone.

My name is Ankit and I am here to give my points on the given topic.

First of all, let me tell you what is cashless economy? Cashless economy means doing anything, buying anything without paying money in cash form.

This is really great initiative taken by pm Modi to make India digitalize and cashless.

There are so many advantages of cashless economy.


1. Due to cashless economy now we need not to wait in a que for any type of transaction, hence it saves a lot of or time and energy.

2. It keep us safe everywhere from robbery as we need not to carry cash with us everywhere.

3. We can easily make payments in few seconds without having cash with us with the help of Google pay, Paytm, Yono SBI etc.

4. We need not to fill form and wait for our time by standing in a queue in bank. Hence it saves our time, energy etc.

5. We can book train ticket, flight ticket and can pay from home sitting at any place.

As every coin has two sides it has some demerits too.


1. The biggest challenge is internet as every online work depends on internet, if there is not proper internet available we can not use these resources in proper way.

2. In villages and hilly areas there is a lot of networking issue so these resources doesn't work there.

3. India is a developing country As technology is increasing day by day hackers are also increasing that can hack our data. So there is security issue but our government is very strict against it.

4. In India there is a lot of problem of unemployment so there are many people who has no electric device such as smartphones to use these resources. So it is not available for every type of citizen.

In conclusion I would like to say that cashless economy is time saving, energy saving, that is a golden opportunity for us but we have to take care of our security, and government should also do something good in villages by solving problem of electricity, and government should also take care of our security and should take very strict action against hackers.

Thanks a lot for reading carefully.

Hello everyone.

The Merit of a cashless economy is that it can reduce the robbery of money and easy in paying large transaction. It can also easy if we want to make a payment to the people who live in large distance by easily doing cashless transaction. It can also ease the people by helping in not going to bank for deposit their money because in cashless it directly go to the bank account it helps in giving electricity bill, gas bill and many other bill which can help the people in saving time. It also connects people digitally with technology.

Demerits of cashless money.

It may increase the cyber attack people who do not have knowledge about hacking may lose their money in a few minutes. For a cashless economy, it made the mandatory to the people to use the phone and it may also cause people to go to a bank account to getting cash because do not have the facility of using cashless transaction.

2. You don't need to stand in a long queue for paying your electricity bill and railway ticket you directly do this online.

3. In online you have many options pay your amount but in cash, only one option that is cash in online you have a debit card and credit card, google pay, Paytm, phonepe etc.


1. In online some people are scare because they thought it might be a chance of theft, fraud, fishing etc.

2. Some times there will be a technical issue that will happen.

3. One thing that I mentioned is when the payment failed and your amount has deducted from the account it takes 4 to 5 days to back, from my opinion it should be 2 to 3 days than people will be very happy.

According to my point of view, the cashless economy is very important for our country because the world is growing too fast and we need it. Cashless economy is the root of Indian economic development. Every coin has two faces good or bad so it depends upon you how to use it. We should be learnt how to use it. If we don't know how to use online transaction it's our mistakes. If we go to the shop and suddenly ATM card is not working in the ATM machine at that time we can use an online transaction. Hence we can say how much benefits of cashless economy.

A warm welcome to everyone participating in this discussion.

I am Mayank, I would like to put some light on the cashless economy which as eventually come into the trends.

So starting with some positives I would tell you that going cashless has made the process of payment fast and efficient.

It has also reduced the extra efforts made by people for the payments from big to small, from goods to services, from country to states.

Going cashless has made all of them a work of seconds.

But digging under the topic to its roots.

It has become the top most reason of frauds and scams happening in the states, has effected a lot of people who are not aware of these malicious activities and news of thefts.

So, I would conclude by saying that though the people are ready for change in terms of payment and commerce but will be requiring knowledge and basic education for going online for the capital transaction.

First, I will discuss the good side of the cashless economy. Due to cashless economy, we can save our time because you can pay in a minute by paying, phone pay, other digital apps but in my opinion, India is not ready now for the cashless economy because as we all know that the most of people in India are illiterate so they don't know how to do payments by phone or computers so I think India will be ready for the cashless economy after two or three-decade. Now I will tell you about the bad effect of the cashless economy. There is a lot of risk for cybercrime.

I don't think India is ready for a cashless economy. It is on the way of cashless economy. India needs two to three decades to become a cashless economy. Here is the reason for not becoming India into a completely cashless economy. Right now many people of India are illiterate. There is no proper banking connectivity all over India. There is also no proper connectivity of the Internet. Corruption rate in India also very high tremendous effort of the government also failing in this field. Many labourers in India are dependent on cash for their daily expenses and they are illiterate or half-educated. So to tackle all these things India need more time to be cashless.

Cashless economy means appealing and ideal. But the thing is our government is yet to perfect its the current monetary system.

1) Government should "abolish" all kinds of manhandling of currency. Currency is global dignity of a country.

2) Mishandling, making of fake currency should be heavily investigated and punished properly to an extent it simply stops.

3) Meanwhile Gov should be formulating and working efficiently towards the secure virtual system. It should join hands to the newest generations for this. And take info from cyber culprits who have done related crimes to make sure it doesn't happen.

4) The change should be slow and perfect.

The cashless economy can minimize paper wastage and reduce all sorts of cash-related crimes. But it brings a whole new set of problems in the cyber level where our country is yet to properly believe and invest in. How can a Gov that cannot yet handle ancient monetary issues cope with the newest ones? It's better to take time and start with a bang; not let hackers make use of naivety.

In this system, the exchange of money is done digitally so there is every chance of embezzlement and also provides a secure and easy mode of payment. But on the other hand, everyone technology has some weakness and this cost very much because in this system if we don't keep or pay our money by a very secure or insured platform a large amount of money can be looted just by one click. So we also have to keep precautionary measures while using the cashless system.

Hello everyone.

I am Akash.

Cashless Economy comes under the Digital India incentive taken by the Indian government in July 2015.

It is a double-edged sword. I firmly believe it has more pros than cons. I would like to mention a few positives about it:

1. It made transactions more transparent. This will significantly reduce corruption. It will bring down the level of black money accumulated.
2. Transaction has become fast. No more worry to maintain hard cash.
3. It reduces the theft of physical cash.
4. Now it is harder for someone to evade tax as all transaction is being recorded.
5. E-ticketing of railways, cinema halls, aviation service and many more. Prior to cashless Economy people had to stand in a long queue to get their tickets.

Cashless Economy still has many flaws in it like Cyber Fraud, Inconvenience caused during transaction due to internet disruption, etc. The government needs to resolve these issues as soon as possible. It needs to aware Rural people about cashless economy. It should frame stringent laws against cyber fraud.

As we are here to discuss about the topic cashless economy.

Cashless economy means the transfer of money from one person to another with the help of internet banking. Cashless economy has its own advantages and disadvantages. In India cashless economy becomes popular at the time of demonetization. At that govt of India promotes transaction with the help of internet banking because of due to lack of physical currency. From that time cashless transaction is increasing day by day.

Cashless economy is very beneficial because from this if we want yo transfer money to another person we don't need to go to bank with the help of our smartphone we can easily transfer money. And many other advantages such as robbery also decreases as cashless transactions increasing. Hoarding of black money and corruption also reduces from cashless transactions. Because govt has all the records of money which anyone transfer to other.

In my opinion, the cashless economy is beneficial for India and any other country. We can do transaction just in one click. It saves us time. In the modern age, no one wants hard work but all want smart work. But we know every coin has two faces so it's demerits also exist. It is not useful for illiterate people. By increasing education cashless economy grow. So the government should increase education for a successful cashless economy. In a cashless economy, there is less fear of theft. But sometimes hackers are successful in hacking.

Hello Everyone.

As we know that we are the youth of modern age and we want more relaxation in our life because we don't want to do hard work. So the cashless economy is very helpful in our daily life. Many people of India are using this facility which is saving money and reducing time. But everything has two sides one is good and another is bad. Nowadays anybody can steal the data and information easily so this is the minus point of this technology. And another problem is many people in our country do not read and write so they do not know about it and poverty is also the major problem of this system they cannot buy expensive mobile phones.

Hi everyone.

We all are here to discuss the cashless economy.

We all know that the online transactions occur through net banking, phone pay, google pay e-wallets etc is known as the cashless economy.

Every technology has two aspects good or worse its totally depends on our thinking.

Good aspects of the cashless economy.

Firstly it eliminates the headache of putting money in the pocket every time. Most of the terrorist's attacks are also reduced due to a cashless economy. The problem of stealing or securing money is also sorted out.

Every department becomes corruption less or bribeless. We get easily accountability of each and every transaction, funds etc.

-Worse aspects of cashless economy.

For a country like India, there is the vast problem of connectivity and accessibility in rural area where there is no network available and also most of rural peoples are not able to operate the smartphones or in case if they will be learned at some extent the 2nd problem in front of is that they easily robbed by hackers and fraud's.

And in the online transaction, if we do by mistake a wrong transaction then we have no option to repent.

But in overall, my point of view cashless economy makes life more easy and fast.

We hope Our government must focus on education because without education nothing is good !

Hello Friends.

Today we have to go discuss the merits and demerits of cashless economy. Friends as we know that there are lots of advantages or disadvantages of cashless. Firstly we know that in the cashless economy we don't need to carry cash so this is a big advantage for us. If we carry cash we are afraid to carry physical cash. But in the cashless economy, we need not to worry about physical cash we can transact money through any online payment mode like phone pe, Gpay or paytm etc. But there is a big problem in the cashless economy is that we have to face network issue, failed transaction issue as well as If we do transaction to a wrong person we unable to take our money. So, we can say easily that if we use cashless economy with some precautions we surely find it a very good model of payment and in the physical cash economy, this is a good payment mode for the rural area because we know our economic system in a rural area there is not good network facilities. So here we know about a few merits and demerits of cashless economy.

Cashless economy means there is no physical case, payment and transaction made through credit card and debit card, mobile banking and internet banking. After launching the program digital India, the govt of India aim to drive people into the caseless economy. This mission boost by announcing the demonization. It has both merit and demerits.


Cashless economy reduces dealing the fake and fraud money it also reduces the money getting stolen and lost. It provides us with every detail of our transaction that helps us to keep records and analyze one's expense. Many builders, businesses man and trader used the physical cash to avoid service tax but the implementation of the caseless economy they can't do that.


India is a country where 60 per cent belongs to a rural area and more than half, doesn't have a mobile phone so it is difficult to spread it. Another reason is illiteracy where people do not aware of the use of technology. Hacking and tracking is a big hurdle for the caseless economy.

As per cashless economy is concerned I think that it will be beneficial for our country.

As we know that there's a lot of work like paying bills to government and many more can be done online as we also know that our population is growing day by day so the government also need to increase there offices workers rather than that if it goes online we will be able to do stress fewer works.

As per demerits is concerned nowadays due to unemployment hacking and frauds has gone on another level which Ultimately does the loss of people I think the government should launch some skims for knowing properly use of technology.

Anu Mohanan said: (Oct 12, 2020)  
N 8th November 2016, our honourable prime minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi made an announcement that the 500 and 1000 rupee notes would be banned. With this announcement, 86% of currency notes in India were just mere pieces of paper. The main objective was to curb black money and eliminate the circulation of fake currency in the Indian economy. India is a cash-centric economy where less than 5% of all transactions happen by money. But with demonetization there resulted in a currency crunch and many people started making online payments. Thus Demonetization took an unprecedented turn of trying to make India move towards a cashless economy. Cashless transaction means using debit, credit cards, internet banking, e-wallets for making payments instead of paying in hard cash. The cashless economy has its own pros and cons.

Merits of cashless economy:

People to boost their customer base even in far of geographic locations and hence will result in enhanced business.

The real estate prices will come down because of the curb on black money, as most of the black money is invested in Real estates.

Electronic payments will improve transparency and accountability. Most of the cashless societies are corrupt-free as all the transactions are being traced, are visible and are transparent.

Making online payments are handy and it will lead to slim wallets as people need not carry cash.

Majority of election funding is done through Black money. Cashless transactions will make it impossible for political parties to spend thousands of crores of unaccounted money on elections. Buying votes by giving cash will also come to an end. True democracy will come into the picture.

Amount of tax collected will also increase, and it can be spent for the betterment of poor and underprivileged people.

Generation of counterfeit currency will be reduced and hence terrorism can be prevented.

It will reduce pickpocketing and robbery of cash in crowded locations.

Through online payment, one can view the history of their expenses and plan their budget in a smart way.

Printing costs of notes and maintenance itself is accounting to 27 billion; this can be removed by electronic payments as there would be no need of paper currency.

De-merits of Cashless economy:.

Many of the rural people and even some urbanites still do not have a functional bank account in order to make online payments.

A majority of India's population is in rural locations, and there are no proper internet facilities available to make online payments.

People in rural areas are not educated about the digital mode of payments.

There are still some places which take cash and do not accept cards. Making a purchase at such locations with card becomes difficult. Small retailers in India still deal only in cash as they cannot afford to invest in digital infrastructure.

Cash is not under your control, you will try to spend excessively.

If you lose your debit/credit card, it takes some time to get a new one.

Hacking and cyber theft are challenging problems which can be caused by online transactions. Cyber Security measures have to be brought in place to prevent money from going into wrong hands.

Even in big cities, sometimes online transactions cannot be made because of poor internet facilities.

In a country like India where cash is more pervasive, it requires some time for India to take a transition towards Cashless economy. Meanwhile, the government of India has to address many challenges to meet the objectives of the cashless economy. The government has to provide internet facilities and financial literacy to all its people. While a cashless economy is still not here, the move towards less cash economy is on the move.

Hello everyone,

The Cashless economy means an economy or market without cash or cash flow in the market. And use some alternative methods for transaction of money. So it means to use an online platform like a Paytm, phonepe and google pay etc. To transaction of money. It have both pros and cons.

The cashless economy provides us more viable and flexible system of money transaction. Now we don't need to stand in long lines in banks, so it saves both time and energy of a person. By using online methods all the things can be done by using mobile, so now we don't need to carry cash with us always. Now just by one click, we can complete all our essential task at any palace. It also decreases the corruption in our country, because now any many government schemes, people are getting their money directly in their account, rather than to take less money from middle people in the system. Digital platform make peoples life more flexible and easier.

Every good thing has some default, so here are also some issue to implement this scheme in our country where most of the people live in rural areas. And people are not aware of the digital or online transaction. We need to aware those people about frauds making by some unsocial people. And there is also the chance of hacking in the online system. So we need to ensure our security system more robust and viable to use these online platforms.

So in the final, I would like to say that it is good to adopt cashless economy for our country, so that we can complete our all task without any difficulty and with save of time and energy. What we need is just some efforts to aware people about the cashless economy and governments effort towards the security of its citizen's account.

Hello everyone,

Today's topic is very much interesting and relevant to the economy of India. A cashless economy means we are doing a transaction of money with the help of the internet or different type of platforms. As we all know that every coin has 2 sides, so a cashless economy also has some merits and demerits accordingly. So, I am going to talk about both things.


1) With the help of a cashless economy, we have no need to carry money in our pockets. Because sometimes carry a big amount of money can be harmful to us.

2) A cashless economy gives you a facility of transparent and reliable, payment of hotel bills, restaurant bills, etc.

3) You have no need to go in the long queue of banks, with the help of Paytm, google pay, phone pay you can do any type of transaction of money which is a very easy and helpful thing.

4) "Time is the most prestigious thing in everyone's life' so a cashless economy saves our time and energy.

5) Our honourable PM Mr. Modi always exclaimed on Digitalization and cashless economy because by this we can stop the black money and corrupted people who have lots of black money in their accounts.


1) Cashless is a good technique for us to save time, energy, and efforts, but on the other side India right now is a list of developing countries, a lot of people in India don't have a smartphone, the best internet facility even electricity also. So they can believe in his technology.

2) With the development in technology simultaneously no. Of hackers and thieves also increases day by day, they can hack your bank account in a single second if you are not aware of the precautions.

3) After the 73 years of freedom in India, Village citizens believe only in cash because they aren't aware of the cashless economy. They have no bank account, So it is the duty of govt that they have to arrange campaigns in the remote and backward areas of India.

So, although there are lots of merits and demerits of the cashless economy, eventually I strongly believe in a cashless economy because by this I am utilizing my save time in different activities.

Thank you!

Nowadays everyone is going for online payments, even a small grocery shop has services, by which customer can pay them online which have many benefits but one important benefit is that people don't have to carry cash with them. And also there are many more merits of cashless payments like you get extra coupons or cash backs when you do a payment online. But again everything has its merits and demerits, the biggest demerit is the network availability/internet connection, your payment can get stuck and sometimes withdraw has been done from your account but the amount does not reach the other person account. Which actually makes us more worried about it. Second important thing is that online payments are not for larger transactions, there's a fixed limit for your daily transactions. But I personally do prefer cashless payments, which makes me less worried about my cash as I don't have to carry much with me. And sometimes cash backs make us happy, right?

Well, there are merits as well as Demerits to every change which is brought about.

An interesting and possible "merit" here is that the "demerits" of Cashless economy, which are low-quality internet and electricity and less awareness among the people, IF attempted to rectify, can fast forward the development of this country. People living in rural areas will be forced out of their nutshells and seeking good education and facilities will become more important for them. This could lead the government to prioritise their needs, collaterally igniting sparks of innovation and creativity in a lot of individuals, thereby plummeting the overall potential of this country to extremely high levels. This innovation can take a different and greater form even after these issues have been sorted.

However, there are some environmental concerns regarding radio waves and their impact on nature. Some studies have stated that an out of control presence of radio waves can affect human life and make them highly susceptible to diseases like cancer.

A simultaneous preparation to control this situation and not let it get out of hand could take not just this country, but the whole mankind to an environment-friendly, at the same time technologically advanced, sustenance.

According to my point of view, it is safe and secure for all transactions. But as every coin have two sides, so most of the rural people were not having more awareness about the cashless economy so the government should take a step to give some awareness.

Good evening everyone.

Today we are going to discuss on the topic "cashless economy" which is a very fascinating topic which we have to discuss upon.

So Let's start.

Cashless economy means where the economy is digitalized. It is especially coined by our prime minister ahead with its plan to Demonetize the currency note of rupee 500 and 1000.

As we all know every initiative have it's own pons and cons so as the cashless economy has.

Now, I am discussing the merits of it.

1) Now don't have to stand in queue for a long time in banks for small transactions.
2) Now we don't have to walk with a lot of money to purchase something.
3) You can also pay your electricity bill or water bill or any bill through online you do not need to go anywhere.
4) It also helps on our GDP. Which is more important?
5) Black money is totally obsolete because no involvement of the third person is there.

Now comes for demerits.

1) Most of the small cities and villages oblivion of the country.
2) remote areas don't have proper knowledge on how to handle online transactions.
3) Most of the rural areas don't access the internet because of network problems.
4) Most of the people worried about security for cashing transactions.
5) Refunding the money also takes much time.

From my point of view, the cashless economy has both merits and demerit. But I am with merits because they are in the majority and also very helpful. Because it saves time. And time is so important nowadays.

Cashless economy is the major and important topic in today's era. As it is really beneficial for all of us to discuss it.

It has many merits and demerits.

- As during the pandemic time, it really helpful as the exchange of currency notes can also increase the risk of disease transfer.

- Cashless also helps the easy transfer of money from one place to another.

It has lots of merits but has demerits also.

As it requires proper knowledge of using technology, as it is difficult for poor or illiterate people to use. Even in the remote areas, it is difficult to use due to improper internet connection and also leads to an increase in digital crime rate.

According to me, the cashless economy is one of the major steps for India to become a developed country.


Going cashless makes customer to make payment in a flexible way, the technology is so advanced that people started using payments online for many purposes like education, and education is also completely digitalized every person is able to access the education through payment online and it has become a root of many dreams.


Especially in villages, people not having any idea about technology can face problems in this which can also lead to robbery or theft sometimes.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for giving me this opportunity to share my opinion. Cashless economy is one of the important tools for every developing country.

It reduces time and makes transactions safe. It decreases theft. It makes the world into digitalization.

Still, some rural people are not aware of digitalization. The data may theft by hackers.

In my opinion, cashless economy will be really very good step for India. There are so many benefits of this like, it takes less time, transparency is there, it make the life easy of those people who know this things well.

But we should also not forget this point that there are so many places and people in India who don't get electricity properly, specially in village parts and small towns etc. If those are not getting proper electricity, how can we supposed that those people will use digital gazets to pay or receive money.

So, I think we need to first work on this direction otherwise there will be good come out of it.

Cashless economy is an economy in which digital transactions are included. It has mobile banking, useof debit card or credit card. It focuses on the digital transactions.

Merits of cashless economy:

1. If we are using digital transactions for our payments then we will not carry cash in our pocket. Thus, it will reduce theft.

2. The digital transactions has increased the flow of money in the market and therefore it has increased the market efficiency.

3. Cashless transactions are transparent in nature and we can keep record of all the transactions.

4. People can pay their bills online and there is no need to go bank so, there will be no wastage of time.

Disadvantages of cashless economy:

1. Digital transactions are attacked by hackers and data thefs. They can hack your transactions and thus, we can loose our money.

2. India is a vast country and there are so many rural people who are not aware of these digital payments and transactions. So, it is hard to reach every person. Most people are not able to use different online websites and applications.

3. Cashless economy needs good internet connection which is not there in the every part of the country. Strong internet connections which can reach to a larger number of people at different urban and rural areas will reduce this problem.

Merits :

1. No need to go for current bill offices, dish bill office .. Etc we can pay from the place where we are within seconds. So, there will be no wastage of time like going and standing in queues.

2. Transparency in transaction prevents blank money.
3. Most services like e-ticket booking for buses and other transport services, booking for hotels. Etc all these makes it very flexible for people and convenient too.


1. These are helpful for educated people and it causes difficulties for uneducated people because they don't any to use smartphones.

2. These make it difficult for people who do not have smartphone-like village people.

We cannot make all or completely online or cash less economy.

Hi everyone,

Our today's topic is "Merits and Demerits of Cashless Economy" which is very broad term in itself.

So, in my point of view, pros & cons totally depend on us, if we have a better/complete knowledge of cashless economy then there will be no cons right!

Do you think around 50%-60% population which is educated, they use smartphones and they know how to use the internet, all they aware of cybercrime or digital robbery?

Before discussing merits and demerits I think awareness is a must.

Hello everyone. Today Our topic is "merits and Demerits of the cashless economy". I completely believe we got to the situation now like we can't separate ourselves from gadgets around us. Just with them, we are completely restricting ourselves to the most comfort zone. One of the best advantages of them is online payments. It has reduced human effort drastically just by clicking mobile phone from where ever we are. Earlier it was very hectic to stand in large queues just to pay some bills like ticket booking, home debits etc. Which is not just but a wastage of time. People now are preferring online transactions over offline payments. It saves a lot of time. Not only payments but these digital life has also given employment to a number of people directly or indirectly. The government also taking initiative to this cashless economy by conducting some digital campaigns, taking decisions like demonetisation, encouraging it by starting programs like digital India. Like a coin has two sides. It also has some demerits. Most of the people including literates are becoming the cyberthreat victims as they were not fully aware of this problem. Hackers are just attracting people by sending some spam msgs. Unknowingly people losing their money just with one click. Most of the illiterate people disclosing their important bank details. This is one of the biggest disadvantages. And we all can't afford to have internet connection all the times. So the government has to take some measurements towards these problems and promote people to use cashless transactions.

Hi Everyone!

We have a great topic to debate "Merits and Demerits of Cashless Economy".

Well, I strongly support cashless Indian economy knowing that a large no. Of people are against of it and they're right and they have the valid points too like in India where 6.7% population is below poverty than how can they afford smartphones and net recharge; India where 26% people are not educated then how can they use the online platform, India where only 55% population is using the internet; Cybersecurity risk is also high, most of the literate population also don't know the cyber threats and many more still I'm supporting this campaign because this is not the single-day campaign. Government is not converting a cash-based economy to a cashless economy in one day. It will take years so just relax but Yes now India is not ready to go for complete cashless Economy.

Undoubtedly government is working over it and has taken various measures towards it like Digital India campaign, Demonetisation, promoting digital payment, providing a license to payment banks, etc.

1: It will save time and money in today's world time is more important than money.
2: There will be transparency in the transactions so better will be the monitoring.
3: No need to stand in a long queue for the bill payments or tickets booking etc.

I want to say that India is a developing country. There every type of people live. Some of them who better know how to use a smartphone and how to secure to your account. But most of the people who live in rural areas and they don't know how to use a smartphone and how to secure your account. Because they have no idea about hacking. They have less access to the Internet. So, I have partially support to a cashless economy.

Major benefits of cashless economy are following.

1. Make transactions efficient and transparent.
2. One can transfer money from anywhere and anytime.
3. Facilitates online shopping and online education.
4. Helps to remove black money from the Indian economy.
5. Removes the middleman and help to deposit money directly into construction workers and farmer account.

Besides benefits, the cashless economy has some demerits.

1. Hackings are increasing nowadays causing threats to money and personal information of people.

2. People who do not have internet access ability are excluded from benefits offered by cashless economy.

3. A large segment of Indian people doesn't have knowledge of the digital transaction.

Cashless economy help for the development of the country. But the government should first educate rural people on how to do the digital transaction. Otherwise, they don't get benefits offered by digital economy.

1. The biggest advantage of cashless economy is "it makes our economic lives simple and fast. At the time when we don't have smartphones, people have to go to the banks, stand in a queue, fill a form, only to deposit some money. Now we can perform these works in minutes.

2. You can get Bank transaction records more frequently.

3. We can not withdraw amounts (e.g- 330,450,211) from ATMs, but it is possible with an online transaction.


1. Most peoples of India are illiterate, or unable to handle a smartphone. That is why they are unable to get the benefits of a cashless system.

2. Chances of cybercrimes increases.

Those peoples can be easily trapped by the cybercriminals, who don't know much about the world of smartphones.

In this digital world, everything is available in the form of the online, economy so the cashless economy has many merits and demerits too.


1) one can transfer money any time from anywhere.

2) No chances that anyone could hold black money.

3) In a cashless economy all the money stored either in the bank or invested in stock, so it always gives some amount of returns.


1) As India is a developing country and most of the people live in a rural area, everyone doesn't have access to the internet and can't be offered any device.

2) Most people don't know how to operate mobile or computer, so there will always be a security concern.

3) Hacker are at the pick nowadays, and they can steal money from people who don't have much idea about security.

Lastly, Not now but in future India have to go with a cashless economy, building strong security, providing people computer awareness.
