Hello, I'm Jaya.

According to me, digital payments are secure for the Indian economy because nowadays we are using them enormously it's beneficial to us.

A person should have minimum knowledge to use this unless it is somewhat insecure. We are using many types of apps for digital payments like Google pay ph pay I think these are very useful and also time reducing and sometimes we are getting rewards through these apps. If we have any problem with the transaction the money will be debited within hours.

Hello.

I am Somesh Rai and I believe that digital payments are not secure enough for the Indian Economy to go cashless as I believe during an SSL secured payment transaction made through any Gateway irrespective of the mode of transaction and automation there arises a point of manual human authorization/verification which poses a huge risk as no matter how secure you make a network it all depends on the person using it and how educated or smart he is to understand the risk of disclosing any information regarding it as it happens in Jamtara a location in Jharkhand India where a group of people targets individual transactions by accessing the confidential details of the persons by fooling them and get away after scamming people easily without any trace.

Hello friends I am Narinder.

According to me, digital payment in India is secure enough for payments until we follow all guidelines and all rules and regulations.

But firstly, people should have proper knowledge about it. People should be aware of hackers and fraud. No one can hack until we share our password and OTP. But it is found from a report that in online payment India comes number one. If all people educate and are aware of this then it will help to increase our economy and GDP growth.

Obviously, India secured 1st position in digital payment all over the world. By doing many digital transactions we can have proper proof to every payment that we made. As a result, we won't have to blame mercenaries who misappropriate the money of our government. If anyone tries to theft the money we will have all the security with proof. So don't bother to make digital payments, they are safe because it depends upon the digital proof.

Yes, in my view, digital payments are secure enough to go cashless when we follow the rules and regulations. We see that digital payments save time and during this pandemic world the digital payments help us to go contactless, also in this busy world, it helps in saving time thereby increasing of productivity in work. It is secure enough as the national payment corporation of India provides rules and regulations for these digital payment apps like phonepe, google play, Paytm etc. It also helps in the reduction of corruption and also increases of transparency in the economy. But when coming to rural areas where most are less educated fear using these apps, so it is time for educated people to create awareness about these digital payments. Thank you.

Yes:

1. If we follow the guidelines: There are a set of rules that need to be followed to keep your digital banking secure and free of phishing. If we take care of those little points which we usually ignore, it is not very difficult to stay secure with the digital payment system. People usually miss on the small but essential guidelines that maintain a secure payment system.

2. Being worked upon: Mobile banking apps, wallets, payment banks are working overtime to help improve the security level from time to time. It is essential that people upgrade their applications from time to time when a new update is available. Instead of panicking, we should try to be more alert on digital security and make other people aware too.

3. New measures: The good news is that Qualcomm is already approaching digital payment companies to help secure their payment system. Soon Qualcomm is said to be coming up with its new features in the mobile chipset that will verify user with payment gateway using unique features that will be hard to hack or bring glitch into.

No,

1. Qualcomm report: Qualcomm has reported that most banking applications in India don\'t run on hardware security. They run on Android mode and use password can be stolen. Fingerprints that some users use can also be captured and used to sneak into your account. Security is one of the biggest challenges with digital payments and wallets. If we cannot be provided with that, a cashless economy is a far dream.

2. Hackers everywhere: It is not long back when ATM fraudulence disturbed a lot of people who lost money and had to wait for quite a long time to get it refunded from banks. Over the last week, we saw that Twitter handles of prominent leaders were hacked and abusive posts were made from it. Email databases were accessed. The biggest issue in US at the moment is also on Russian hackers accessing the system of party members and their databases. This is a scary enough tale for a nation that plans on going cashless.

3. Falling into traps: If the latest reports of Norton Cyber Security Insights are to be believed Indians are the most prone to falling into tramps of phishing and hacking. We just don\'t know when to click and when to simply avoid. The ads are not always secure and we aren't supposed to clicking on things randomly but that is not known to most people who are either using digital payments or wallets for the first time or using Smartphone for the first time.

4. Helping isn't really helpful: Recently our PM asked digitally literates to help at least 10 others who are not used to the process of online transactions and digital payment system. The problem with this is that digital banking and e-wallets are actually things that should be personal to someone. You just don't want anyone else to peek into your stuff when it comes to money matters. It is getting more and easier for someone to take undue advantage of your innocence and the next moment one can be robbed of whatever little they saved up.

5. Lack of security standards: As of now there are no security standards prescribed by RBI for e-wallets in India. The circulars only require e-wallets to have 'adequate' data security infrastructure. There have to be prescribed minimum standards for security for the e-wallet providing firms to be registered before people start putting all their faith into it.

No, we aren't completely ready to go cashless but we are on the way. There are improvements being made and as Qualcomm suggested that it will be integrating with Indian companies to make digital payments more secure, we can definitely hope for a better world where no hacking and phishing would be a glitch for India to go completely digital.

Talking about digital payments, it became an import part of our life in today's scenario. As we all aware of the pandemic condition we have seen last year and still going through that only. So by keeping that in mind and not too involved in any kind of interaction which may lead directly to our health, payment in digital mode is the best choice.

Keeping aside the pandemic, If we see another aspect like our busy life and early payments on the spot, here we definitely need an interactor that can solve our problems. For that, we have applications like paytm, google pay, phone pe etc. All these works in digital mode and saves our time to make us go to the bank and standing in a queue for hours.

Apart from this, we can save our surrounding from corruption by using the payment digitally directly to the owners without involving the spooners in between.

Hello everyone,

Digital payment is the most important factor these days for money security purpose. By digital transactions, people have no need to go in the bank and stand in queue for a long time, so here I would like to share some pros and cons of digital payments.

Pros:

1) Digital payments is the method to pay money to any person or vendor via different apps with the help of the internet.

2) Cashless economy is a dream project of the current govt, by cashless economy govt, has a record of every transaction of every citizen of India so it will be fewer chances of corruption.

4) With the help of cashless transaction no need to carry lots of money in the pocket. No worry about lots of cash no worries about looting.

5) It seems beneficial for bank workers to do work in a more proper manner.

Cons:

1) India education system is improving day by day but right now there is also lots of loop holes in education because without knowing about the cashless economy we can't aware of people about these things.

2) However there is always some fear in the mind of many persons about the security of a cashless economy.

3) In backward areas there is a proper facility of electricity, water facility so how we can imagine a beneficial cashless economy.

4) Eventually govt has to improve internet connectivity in every small village and city and also spread awareness of a cashless economy.

5) Via digital payments lots of frauds doing fraud with innocent people and poor people.

Yes, I agree with secure of digital payment in Indian economy. Were it is not only reduce the work load but it also provide safety. Not everybody can make a transaction the one who have their VPA can enter into their transaction. VPA is the proper and secure to holders. Where now airtel introduce the digital payment app named airtel safe pay with huge safety measures. The digital payment plays a vital role in the Indian economy.

I think that it is not secure for the country just like India where 60% of people are not educated. If those people are using digital payment throw any popular app anyway. There are many possibilities for happening fraud with their people. Because of third-person knew that he easily gives his banking information to him then using this information to take money from the bank during this process these people don't know about this fraud. After happening fraud, these people knew that.

Today, many famous people advertise to this type of fraud so unaware people will know and prevent it. So it is not secure for all people.

Hello everyone!

Digital payment means there is no money in our hands and everything is online. And I think the digital payment is very secure and useful for us. And it also saves our time. As you all know that it is very helpful for us in this pandemic time because of it there is very less contact of people's for money transaction. And it is also very useful when you have no cash or credit, debit card for any payment then digital payment is very useful. There are many apps for an online transaction like phonepay, Paytm, googlepay, Imobile etc. And some peoples are not aware of online payments. And there are many advantages of digital payments so I think everyone should know online payments because it is very useful.

Thank you.

1. Digital payments made easy our life to go without cashless. Imagine, you went to a holiday trip with your friends and all the spending is made by you without knowingly and suddenly all of a sudden the money you have bought for the trip is over and you did not carry your debit/credit card or you have forgotten you pin number. Then in that situation it feels very difficult to anyone to ask money from others but we also have an alternate option that is digital transfer, nowadays digital transfer made easy even with our finger lock so we don't need to remember the pin. And it even more helpful for senior citizens because they might forgot their pin at any time but once if the finger lock gets opened then they can happily enjoy their trip easily. So, in my point of view, digital transfer is easy and trustworthy based upon the choice we choose.

Digital payments are secure enough for the boost up of cashless Indian economy reason being India is the 5th largest economy by nominal GDP in the world and have had progressed a lot in IT sector. Keeping in view the large educated population it is the best way for getting hassle free banking services at yours finger tips. It is also helpful in controlling physical movement of money and can save you from theft of hardly earned money. It could be a best way for curtailing corruption from the society. The country like India is not progressing due to large spread of corruption, but due to digital payment transparency will increase. Although security is the major concern in digital payments but now the banks and other digital payment gateways are providing latest updated software under the supervision of RBI and also guiding the public through various modes like newspapers, TV etc. General public is also getting aware of it and using digital payment with precautions. I think its a habit and once you habitual of it, it becomes so easy to handle digital payments. Fast with 24 hrs availability is the beauty of digital payment which the public are cherishing.

1st of all, good morning everyone.

Today's topic is very interesting and important.

As we know that every coin has two face +ve & -ve. But depending on which one is more.

In my opinion, if we have proper knowledge about the digital currency it is best for us. But we don't have knowledge about it then there is too much problem. By digital currency, we can do any payment in a few seconds. By this, we save our time & there is no way of any corruption. So it is better than paper currency.

I think digital payment is good for our country because in this covid period if we use money hand to hand then it cahnces of corona virus infection so we have learn it and increse the awareness in the urban and specially in the rural sector beacuse everyone have android phone but they don't want to use and they have a fear of loss money and also not a good network in rural I know because I born in village I know everything related to that so cashless is good but with this network, knowledge and awareness is also important thing, so I think it is good and slowly slowly time is changing and it takes time to develop our country it helps people to save time and it is a faster way to send money from one account to another account in a faster, smarter and better way only use android apps and mobile phone so when are fully aware about it so it helpfull for them, safe and secure.

Gargi said: (Nov 18, 2020)  
Hello everyone,

I am Gargi, in my opinion, In India, it is not the right time to go for a cashless economy. There is some strong reason behind this.

First of all, there are many online websites where they save personal information about the customer like location, contact info, card details. And most of its customer is not aware of that. There is always a data breaches news in media. Recently, that happen with Bigbasket, an online grocery shop. Secondly, In Indian, Aged people and are not that much friendly with digital interference, most of the time they need support from other family members to use a smartphone or make a call. In a case like, if an aged person lives alone in the house, it will be difficult for him/her. In a low-income group, their life depends on daily wages, so, it will be a problem to pay a small amount of money to someone.

Most of the rural areas have an uneven internet connection, so, there is a possibility of being failed in a money transaction. Also, in tribal areas, most of the family have no bank account. And, in the COVID pandemic, there is too much cybercrime related to digital payment or others.

So, in my conclusion, I want to say that there is a need of proper infrastructure and security for implementing the economy cashless.

And Thank you to all of you to drop my opinion. Thank you.

According to my opinion, this is the most amazing idea also one of the greatest methods to develop our country.

Although, 1/4th of the people in our country is uneducated and unaware of using digital payment. But we can make an app which is having animated symbols or characters that guide them to go for digital payment.

Initially, it should be an optional method like now but after some days it should be a compulsory method.

Hi everyone.

Digital payments are very helpful to us. But it isn't always safe always. There are many cases in which the money gets deducted during fraud/spam transactions. This mainly occurs due to loss of knowledge about the same. Firstly the government should start some campaigns for the people who don't know about the topic mainly in a rural area. For me, it's a boon and bane both.

Digital payments are indeed the best way to pay your bills as you don't have to go anywhere and with just a click your bill will be paid. But as everything has its pros and cons we should not forget how risky these transactions can be sometimes. The account can be hacked or the transaction from fraud sites may empty your account balance. So while doing transactions you should have adequate knowledge of the particular site. In India Digitization has recently been introduced so many of the people have inadequate knowledge. But as every new thing takes time to grow. We want our country to grow but at the same time, we don't want to adopt new changes.

Digital payment is a type of payment in which cash is transferred to another account digitally. It has its own advantages and disadvantages. It saves people time and it is quick and easy in nature. In India, internet connection is not available everywhere and without it digital payment is not possible. In rural areas, people are still aware of this payment process. In digital or online payment, there are cases of fraud and hacking which makes people scared to use this mode of payment but this happens in very rare cases. People should be aware of the digital payment like they should never share their OTP, pin or password with anyone. Security issues by online payments applications should be increased.

Secondly, there are many businesses or small shops which today also depends on cash so changing to cashless will impact to their business and middle-class and poor people can hit by this.

Hello to everyone,

According to me, India is still not ready to go 100% cashless. If we talk about cashless transaction then first we should have a look upon the literacy rate of India, which is only approx 74%. With this literacy rate are we even supposed to talk ar discuss in this topic. But there is a catch, we can still make digital payment cashless by making an app that's united all over India just like an Aadhar card which is mandatory in each and every phone for cashless payment which can be made fully protected. The app should contain visual symbols so that even an illiterate can understand or we can give tutorials to the older generation via youtube or anything.

Hello everyone, my name is Mandy.

We are using digital payments for a variety of things like paying electric bills, paying EMI's, purchasing from online sites. If we make payments in big platforms like Amazon, Paytm, airtel, then we don't have to worry because those sites and interfaces are very secure and there is customer support available if anything bad happens during a transaction. But small sites are not that secure. The older generation lacks knowledge of making secure transactions. For example when the younger generation wants to book tickets then they will go to sites like Paytm, or Redbus, but when the older generation try to book the tickets they will type bus operators in the google and they will go into any random site which may compromise the data.

From my point of view, I think India is presently not ready to deal with digital payment and make the country cashless. Still, most of the people have strongly believed in a cash transaction. For example, if we want to pay any amount in metropolitan and cosmopolitan cities like Delhi, Chennai etc in India through digital payment that is acceptable I mean we can easily pay through digital mode. But on the other hand, if we go to the rural area in north and south states than we will face the problem. Especially if I am taking the example of a rural area in Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh. There are no changes in their thinking towards digital payment it may be because of lack of awareness, lack of infrastructure, digital communication and other digitalization. If we are talking with respect to economy dan the main reason is -most of the people depend upon primary economy i.e. Agriculture and they have strong faith upon cash payment because lack of education they don't know how to operate the digital mode.

And technology is still developing to make it more secure that's why I think digital payments are secure to go Indian economy cashless.

Hi guys. I am Soubhagyamayee.

Thanks for finding this type of opportunity to express some point regarding this topic.

1st of all we know what is the digital payment? digital payment is based upon network system totally. Without a network connection, we can't do it easily. For digital payment, we must have an A/C with any bank.

Now we all are using digital payment through Google pay, phonepe and paytm also. In this process. People have no need to go bank n stand in a queue and wait for a long time. For a small transaction. And to waste valuable time.

In this process, people can easily transfer money from one A/C to others. From any place and at any time. There is no fraud because we have a proof of transaction. And our money is fully saved. In our A/C but every pros have positive & negative side also. Am not against. But it is difficult for old people. Because they have no idea about all this and for this, we must have a smartphone but it is not available among all. This is a big problem nothing else. So for digital payment. Govt should take responsibility to teach people about this. And also the use of it. Basically, who have no idea. Nothing else.

Thank you all.

HI Friends. , I am Divya.

In my point of view, Digital payments are a secure and time-saving process. Nowadays we are spreading the virus through cash by hand (COVID19). So through the online transaction, we can decrease the virus. Banks have a time limit to do a transaction, but by a digital transaction have no time limit, we can transfer and receive money at any time and from any place. In some rural areas are facing problems of digital payment, But we should know bout one thing no one has knowledge by Born. So, life is a journey of learning. If we learn, we can move otherwise we can't go through the world. Educated people have to demonstrate about the digital transaction in rural areas. Thank you.

In my opinion, digital payments are not secure enough. In support of my opinion there were many frauds, robberies happened, when people have been using it. People are victims in the case, as intelligent cyber criminals are playing it safe and ease.

As it is very much productive by saving our time and energy, going cashless is always helpful.

Digital payment apps are playing a key role as we can do money transfer within minutes from anyplace if we have internet connectivity. The another feature is that we can keep track of our bank account i.e, we can check balance amount, block the atm card if it was lost.

In my view, digital payments are the most useful for doing transactions as it saves our time and the crowd in the banks.

For doing international transactions it is the best way for businesses, for local vendors we are using options as phonepe and paytm, and as technology is growing it's quite easy for us to secure it.

We have seen very few cases where the transactions are failing and it is not secure, still we have right to complain and ask about our money.

As people are getting more wise in going cashless it's benefiting India.

And technology is still developing to make it more secure that's why I think digital payments are secure to go Indian economy cashless.

It is not just about illiterate people but many literate people also do not show interest in digital payments as they are not confident about it. They are unable to trust digital payment apps as they have heard about so many scams and frauds. So firstly, the government should sensitize people at the ground level to make them confident about digital payments.

In my opinion, digital payments to go cashless is a very good thing to use. In our society, every man or woman earn money with hardwork so mainly the rural people are mathematically run their lifestyles so they won't be able to spend money easily, for example, they go by auto to somewhere they have 20 rupees but charge is 15 rupees they didn't have change and auto driver also didn't have change so here the excess money credit to auto driver but debit to the common people. For those illiterate or common people or rural people must want this digital payment then they save money easily.

Hello Everyone!

In my opinion, India is heading towards digital payments. The use of digital payments have increased in India in the last two and three years.

But the most important point is "are digital payments secure enough for the Indian economy" I think still there are many things to do in order to make digital payments secure enough to go for a cashless economy. Although, there are many security features in place while doing digital transactions. However, in recent times we came across many breaches, thefts, and frauds. So it can be said the use of digital payments/platforms does not secure enough so far.

In India, most of the population lives in rural areas and they are not confident enough to lose their hard-earned money to waste. There is no doubt about it that internet connectivity has reached every corner of the nation but there are lots of elderly and illiterate citizens of the country who are not aware of the functionality of digital payment modes. The lack of awareness is due to two main reasons.

1. Lack of awareness.
2. Highly secured digital platforms.

I think the above two reasons contribute a lot. These are restricting to the Indian economy going fully cashless. In cities, peoples' literacy is too good to understand the benefit and need for digital transactions. On a daily basis, we see a lot of Apps are providing a very good offer for doing online transactions that encourage people to be part of digital payments.

So, in conclusion, we can say India is not ready to go for the cashless economy at present.

India is one of biggest user of mobile phones in spite of this most of people are using it only for communicating with each other or use it in very light manner but when we talk about cashless it means everythings i.e. money hence before going cashless government should aware people about how to do secure transaction or how one can secure ones smart phones and more things.

Advantage- digital payment is secure and easy for the transaction. We say that time is money so during payment no time is required. You can not take large amount of money with you but through digital payment, it happens. We can also save money from thief. Digital payment is more secured through OTP (one-time-password) and biometric. It also reduces corruption.

Disadvantages -our most of population are depended on agriculture in fact 65% so they are not aware of this system n they are not educated. In fact, they think that it's not trustworthy, so they go to the bank and deposit or withdraw their money. As the report, the most phishing attack is performed in India. There are various apps are used for payment, paytm is one of them, everyone is aware of this app, the app is made by China. A/c to economic parameter world war 3 would happen then they can withdraw all amount through the app, so India becomes helpless's.

Hey, everyone, this is Swati Jha.

According to my opinion, digital India launched with a vision of digitally empower each and every citizen of our country. The foremost challenge is to increase digital literacy in the country. I just want to say that India has already progressed enough digitally but we can't say this is 100% secure because every thing comes with some pros & cons.

Cons are it's difficult to access everything online for those persons who are not aware of internet and technology that much n also for those who live in rural areas and thought that these are totally insured. But if we follow the set of rules & guidelines that need to be followed to stay secure with online transaction then I must say this is not that much difficult to tackle, and also awareness plays an important role when it comes to the online transaction it's our responsibility to being more alert n also aware others. It is also essential dt people upgrade their application from time to time when a new update is available it also help to improve security level. If we do this then I think the Indian economy is ready to go cashless.

Thank you so much.

In my point of view, India is not ready to go 100% cashless because of the undeniable facts like poverty in some part of our country and also uneducated people lack awareness among them. They actually don't know how to use the servies and their terms and conditions. According to the report of the Qualcomm which is one of the American chip maker company, there is no Indian e-wallet company is providing hardware lever security which is a key factor of cyber theft. There is also a network and bank server issue in some region of our country. Although as we see from 2005 to 2019 there is tremendous increase in digitalization digital payment is nowadays is easy and fastest mode of transaction it kept all the end to end information of data whatever is send is received or not but we can't deny the fact that it is mostly applicable in urban areas where people are educated and aware not for the people who struggle hard to survive their daily life.

In my point of view, considering Indian geographic condition, India should not go with 100% cashless without educating the people about cashless payment. India is an agriculture based economy, where most of the people live in a rural area. In a rural area, they don't believe in online mode payment. There are two reasons either they don't know online mode payment or don't believe in the security of payment. India has a large population, as well as some area like UP, Bihar, Odisha and northeast state, have not a good network. I am not saying that cashless mode is wrong, it is very fast, less time consuming and provide 24-hour service as well as we should also keep in mind its side effect.

It also provided the solution by revealing that it is working on its chip in which many new modifications will be made to ensure the prevention of such attacks.

2. RBI, which is the leading operator of Indian economy has still not provided mandatory guidelines for the e-wallet companies.

We can not say it is 100% secure as we can not see how it is happening digitally like magic so keep on transacting online as there are cyber crimes happening I have heard of. We need to consider and support online transactions with security precaution and care. In fact renowned banks like SBI, Axis, BOI are having a partner company naming cpp India for the security of the credit and debit cards of their costumer on insurance.

Hello good afternoon everyone.

I am in favour of the topic. Digital payment is very secure and easy for the transaction of money.

It saves ous time.

It is also a step of digitalization for our country.

We also can save our money from the theft.

And we are able to check the bank balance at any time and anywhere just with the help of our mobile phones it is really making our life easy because the transaction of money is important for everyone life.

We should accept the system of digitalization.

It also resolves the problem of change because when we are going to any shop there is a lack of changes should the shopkeeper forcefully give some other thing in the exchange of money.

As we all know that we have to change something in the system like awareness the people who are not educated how they got to know to use of digitalization. Supporting to us what are the main things should have to be changed.

There are some basic suggestion for me to changing the system of the things which make us easier to all the people for transaction money as digitalised.

First of all the app developers design the easiest pattern for the transaction also give the facility of language like in Hindi or maybe audio by which uneducated person also can understand how we can transaction the money with the help of our mobile phone.

My second opinion is that the government should do some door to door campaign and advertisement in the television audio advertisement in radio also by the help of newspaper articles drawings for how to transaction is easy. Because we all know that we the Indian people are very attracted to the things of television send you the product because of their advertisement in the television So, As the same process utilisation payment transaction should be used by the all people.

So, I conclude my points we should take the step of awareness by the help of television advertisement for the transaction and make our India economy to go cashless and one thing also I want to share everything has their pons and cons. I listen to someone says it is not secure because of the hackers so as the same if you take your money in the wallet also be not secure by the theft.

We cannot just load all the cash digitally and move to a remote place and buy goods there it is difficult without some cash in our hand for example- paying for street foods, in small puncture shops as they don't know what digital payments are they need money cash on their hand.

From my point of view, I think India is presently not ready to deal with digital payment and make the country cashless. Still, most of the people have strongly believed in a cash transaction. For example, if we want to pay any amount in metropolitan and cosmopolitan cities like Delhi, Chennai etc in India through digital payment that is acceptable I mean we can easily pay through digital mode. But on the other hand, if we go to the rural area in north and south states than we will face the problem. Especially if I am taking the example of a rural area in Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh. There is no changes in their thinking towards digital payment it may be because of lack of awareness, lack of infrastructure, digital communication and other digitalization. If we are talking with respect to economy dan the main reason is -most of the people depend upon primary economy i.e. Agriculture and them have strong faith upon cash payment because lack of education they don't know how to operate the digital mode. Ok, I m giving my experience, two months ago I was in Bangalore and everywhere I paid through online transaction bt, just two weeks ago in my home town Asansol I went to repair my mobile and at last I wanted to pay through online but not accepted by the shopkeeper the reason behind this because of security they did not believe in digital transaction or, we can say lack of awareness. So, it is my perception because of that I think at present India is not ready to adopt cashlessly. The best solution is to aware the people, educated them at least up to a certain level on which then can think about the benefits of digital payment.

In order to move forward, we need to switch to digitalization as it serves a lot of purposes. Making digital payments online, would eliminate the need of carrying money personally, which in turn would reduce the petty crimes that happen on a daily basis like theft of wallet and etc. , thus reducing crimes also. Digital payments saves time also as we don't have to stand in long queues waiting for our turn.

Good evening friends,

Now the given topic is: "Are the digital payments secure enough for the Indian economy to go cashless". These days every thing is going in digital form, we may get a situation to pay money. At once what we can do, nobody will help you, particularly in financial aspects. Hence there is no need of carrying money in all the situations like a smart phone. Nowadays every individual is having a smartphone so if you are carrying a smartphone, it could mean you are carrying all the belongings related to you. Where ever you are? Whatever you are doing is not necessary. You can comfortably pay the bill or transfer money easily with secure payment through online banking and net banking.

As this method is completely based upon our profile. We should not share our personals with anyone that is the main drawback for these online payments and net banking. Cashless payments provide high security for the users. If we follow the right way then we can make our India as a "Digital India" & also it is the time-saving process, we no need to count the money. Every coin is important because we are earning it so it is responsible to know how to spend the money. For suppose if we are paying the amount by cash, We may not have the chance of getting the remaining amount but if you go through the online payment method where we can get the remaining amount back.

Every form of payment systems has some form of risk associated with it.

Take for Eg. Payment by cash, it has a risk of theft, robbery, damage of currency notes, use of fraud currency but regardless of all of that we use it as a medium of exchange due to the huge benefit of money being easy to carry, widely acceptable and availability in different denominations.

Likewise, cashless payments have a huge risk like cloning of cards by fraud machines, hacking of bank accounts, stolen card details and OTP. However, all these risks though very grave can be avoided by awareness of cyber crimes and by being careful.

Therefore, in conclusion, I would say that though cashless transaction has some risks associated with it due to the huge benefits, we must work towards a cashless society as well as continuously work towards making cashless payments more secured to the growing skills of fraudsters and hackers.

2. No Awareness for an uneducated people.

Even though there is SSL certified site which blind hackers eyes but still there is a possibility to hack our details. There is no 100% guarantee for the secure online transaction!

Secondly, there is no awareness for using this online transaction. Hacker cheats people by saying they are talking from particular bank as manager and ask their ATM card number by saying its lock like that and also cheating by sending OTP as their security code and stolen more than thousands of rupees from poor people in one day.

But now a days due to digital payment all the student are getting their scholarship. So we can say that it reduces corruption. On the other hand, it has encouraged cybercrime. Nowadays it is very common for getting a call and being asked for atm card no. And atm pin no. To which people who are not aware of such frauds become a victim.

So, I would like to say that the digital economy is good for those who are educated and aware enough and follow precautions. They can go for digital payments as there is no such good time to go cashless. But for the people who are not aware and educated enough should go through cash. So instead of cashless, I would like to suggest less cash society. In fact, all the people should have a little cash in their hand since network cannot remain good in all the area for all the time.

If you are aware of the types online threat lurking in cyberspace, you can guard yourself against most financial frauds. Here, only awareness is the key. Follow all the safety norms and you are good to go. There's no such good time for going cashless. Threats are present today, they'll be present tomorrow. Need is to keep yourself updated and know what to expect. Here's a Pro-tip: Maintain a secondary account with just the amount you need to carry out online transactions. This way you keep your primary account beyond reach, in the event you're a victim of online fraud.

Digital payments save time, energy as well as paper. There is no need to carry liquid cash to everywhere which reduces the tension of theft. No need to waste our time in banks as we can do all transactions within a minute all by ourselves. There may be a problem of hacking which is to be overcome by providing advanced cybersecurity. Special departments and laws should be set up to reduce cyber crimes. As per current statistics, only 33. 2% of the population comes under Urban category what about the poor people they don't have the education or good network to get used to digital payments. Proper education should be provided and all fears and doubts on digital transactions are to be cleared in rural areas. The government, students, banks and, media all should come together to bring a change.

Yes. I agree that digital transactions are secure and there are so many benefits attached to it but instead of cashless economy, I would rather suggest for less cash economy. We can't ensure that everybody in the country will get used to digital payment. So small denomination currencies should always be in circulation so that people in the rural areas and older people can transact easily.

I think the digital transactions s necessary for our country. it reduces the time and also we can do transactions at any place and time, all those UPI banking apps are encouraging by providing cashback offers through OTP so that we can have extreme protection for our transactions. but this is only suitable for educated people. some anti-Indians are made use of this illiterate peoples and get their bank details and cheat them. so the government and banks should give proper awareness to peoples on online transactions.

Yes, they are secure enough and even more security is provided to it using the OTP concept that until we don't put the OPT the transaction is not completed so even if a hacker tries to do it that won't be possible without the OTP. Coming to the rural areas they need education for it and government should lauch such programs to spread awarness about the digital payments or sessions should be conducted on it and training should be given to performing the digital payments.

According to me, the digital payments are not secure enough for the Indian economy to go cashless. As it needs proper technology, awareness, knowledge, connectivity and in the country like ours connectivity is very poor although jio has reached to a great extent still all the rural area has not developed yet and also digital transaction can be failed, can lead to money loss to that person who is in urgent need of it and his cash is faltered.

So, prior to digitalisation, India needs development of rural area so that they can also use it properly and also it needs a good amount of trust. i.e the transaction can be cashless if it is not faltered between.

The Cashless Indian economy, rather quoting cashless I would rather say less cash economy. 31.16% is the urban population of India, the urban population rapidly get used to e-wallets, netbanking and other digital payments but what about rural areas.

Coming to the safety, the actual online transaction is 128 bit which is the second most secure with compared to 256 bit. Initial the use of digital payments was so low because of the fear of hackers hacking our bank details. But as the time change, the present generation is rapidly getting used to it. Eg: Paytm which had come out with an idea of online banks.
