Even though the cash crunch has almost come to an end, the after effects of demonetization have restrained us from using much cash. While most of us don’t appreciate the idea of standing in long queues to withdraw money, there are those who feel that carrying cash is not a safe thing. In both the cases, using a second method of payment is more preferred. People choose to pay by card than by cash.
