No plastic money, e-wallets accepted at Parliament eateries

When it comes to the currency ban and consequent push towards digital payments, the BJP and the party's government at the Centre are yet to put their money where their mouth is. Even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the decision to withdraw Rs500 and Rs1,000 banknotes from midnight November 9 in a bid to fight corruption and envisioning a cashless economy for India, eateries at his own party headquarters and Parliament are transacting only in cash. Plastic money and e-wallets do not work.
A Mail Today team visited several of these eateries on Wednesday, starting from the BJP's national headquarters at 11 Ashoka Road to the Parliament canteen, and even those that serve key ministries located in Shastri Bhawan as well as Rail Bhawan that houses the railway ministry. The reporters found that the only mode of transaction at all these places was just hard cash and nothing else.
