Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government are encouraging people to switch to a digital regime and go cashless to rein in corruption.
The PM has asked people to popularise the government's thrust on digital transactions as a "way of life", saying those who are aware of the exercise should be made to use it.
But the ground reality is that not many are aware of digital methods of transacting. Many have no access to internet or cannot afford smart phones.

And here's what we found out.
