A while back, Prime Minister Modi announced the demonetization of the higher denomination currency notes – Rs.500 and 1000. He discontinued theses currency notes out of the blue after an announcement. This created a nationwide panic as everyone was money starved. All the cash they had was nothing but a piece of paper; banks and ATMs were closed. PayTM came to the rescue in the need of the hour.
This resulted in a sudden upsurge in the use of e-wallets like PayTM because they allowed users to make payments without having the physical notes. This helped the people in the time of need. However, there are still many people who have not been able to use it.
