On November 10,2016, the prime minister of India announced that 500 and 1000 rupee notes will not be valid from here after and new 2000 and 500 rupee notes will be issued in some days. This was done to fight back corruption. During this process of demonetization, new apps were introduced like Paytm etc which can pay money online through mobile. Paytm has the feature of scanning a QR code through which payment can be done to a taxi or in shops. Public started liking this way of payment because it was far more better than standing in long queues of Atm in order to get the new 500 and 2000 rupee notes.
