Digital transactions have gained momentum after the 8 November demonetisation of high-value currency notes, as the government actively promotes cashless transactions to reach its target of 25 billion digital transactions in 2017-18, data from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) shows.

The rapid adoption of Unified Payments Interface(UPI), a payment system which facilitates instant fund transfer between two bank accounts on a mobile platform, has helped these efforts.
