When digital transaction turns extra while recharging in Delhi Metro

Ever since the note ban, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been on the overdrive wanting the citizens to take to cashless economy and going digital. But  to the nightmare on the ground the reality is different .

A passenger on the daily Delhi metro route paid Rs 500 with his card for recharge and to his agony found that he has been charged Rs 14 extra for the same. And he took to twitter to explain his plight.


It may be recalled  and widely believed that with the implementation of  digital system it was expected that the prices would reduce but what  happened was just the opposite. Interestingly,  the Delhi Metro ( DMRC) comes under the central government,  so the digital dream it seems is falling flat and raising doubts about the future. It thus appears that  Prime Minister Narendra Modi's fervent plea to the citizens  to make digital economy a way of life  may not be a smooth one. The talk of  easy transition is fine  but it comes with a pain too.
