As a gesture of supporting Shri Narendra Modi’s venture against black money we sent out the following petition to PM Cell on 13th November 2016.

Dear Team,
Our Hon’ble PM has brought a best measure to weed out black money by abolishing 500/1000 rupee notes. However at least in Chennai the following are majorly thriving black money hubs.
  1. Merchants refusing cashless transactions by charging at least 3.5% over and above the bill price. They want everything in cash. And some merchants charge extra for giving receipt too.
  2. Builders force people to pay a percentage in cash and a percentage by cheque (some play here by asking to write a cheque to a different name too).
  3. Auto wallahs are another big source of black money mafia. The Government run complaints helpline is a catastrophic failure and autos continue to fleece passengers with their skyrocketing prices. And incidentally it is said that autos are owned by powerful people and hence a good collection of auto operational revenues reach them.
  4. IRCTC, Government run Bus Booking Services like APSRTC, KSRTC, TNSTC, Electricity Payment Services by TANGEDCO charge higher premium charges for cashless transactions which is a discouraging trend.

Can you kindly look into these too?
