NEW DELHI: A month after Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes were demonetised, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today announced a slew of measures to promote the use of digital payments.
The Finance Minister announced a 0.75 per cent discount for those who pay for petrol and diesel using digital mode.
People buying monthly seasonal tickets in suburban railway networks through digital payment mode will get a 0.5 per cent discount, Jaitley said.
This measure, he said, will be effective from January 1 next year, starting with the Mumbai suburban railways.
