No demonetisation blues! India celebrates 'International Ride Day' going cashless

New Delhi [India], Nov. 22 (ANI): Commuters often face problems while making payments over lower denomination, thus making it inconvenient for commuter and driver.

With the advent of demonetisation leading to limited cash in hand and an indefinite crunch in sight, most people are rushing to cashless transactions.

Go for A Ride Day encourages you to get out into the world - hop on your bike, into your car, and go on a trip. Don't worry too much about where you're going, just enjoy the journey. On the occasion of International Ride Day, here are four apps that offer you a ride without cash.

Jugnoo: Ever since Jugnoo launched the auto rickshaw aggregation service in 2015, Jugnoo has championed the cause of 'Digital India' by promoting use of digital wallets for cashless transactions across the cities that's it operates in. Apart from digital wallets, Jugnoo also recently announced that it would be introducing UPI (Unified Payment Interface) as an initiative to uphold the cashless economy of country. Earlier this year, the company took another step in this direction via a very innovative move of empowering auto-rickshaw drivers to recharge the customers' Paytm wallet to address the issue of returning change after completing the ride. Further supporting the cause, Jugnoo is also planning to tie-up with Payment banks, a new model of banks conceptualized by the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) last year that enable transfer of money through a mobile phone.

Orahi: Orahi a car pooling application has always promoted digital wallet for transaction across the cities they operate in. Orahi realized that people, especially in India, were not comfortable with the idea of handing over cash for day to day travel, unlike in the UK and Canada. To deal with this, Orahi built its own wallet system for registered members.

Passengers and car-owners have a wallet mechanism with Orahi, either through credit card, debit card or Net banking.

Revv- With the advent of the recent government announcement on Demonetization, travelling has become quite gruesome for people. In such times, Revv comes across as a saviour for your day-to-day travel needs. With the option of payment through one's Paytm mobile wallet, it gives users the advantage of going cashless while travelling. Being the perfect companion for point-to-point travel, Revv offers the comfort and privacy of one's own car. To top it all, users have the option to pay via a trusted partner, Paytm.

Travelyaari: Travelyaari, the paradigm-changing online bus booking platform, has announced a tie-up with Paytm and Reliance Jio, for offline payment integration. The platform, which offers solutions to both travellers as well as bus operators, is bringing cash-free payments to all its customers at select inter-city offline counters. At present, 2000 operators across 10000 branches are on board at Travelyaari. Customers can pay for their tickets using either of the mobile wallets and avail of several cashback incentives. (ANI)
