Cashless transactions are fast becoming a thing of the past. People are reluctant to use cashless facilities, which has made the government’s much-hyped campaign a failed episode.

The AP Government has decided to cancel the cashless system and restore cash transactions at ration shops. Causes for the failure of the cashless system include slow internet facilities, difficulties in connecting to the server, repeated failure of the iris and fingerprint recognition system, and the failure of transactions. The hassle involved has made the system non-viable for traders. In many shops, the ePose machines have already been kept aside and a majority of the sales are conducted via cash transactions.

After demonetisation, the AP government had introduced the Aadhaar-enabled Public Distri-bution System (AePDS) under which ration cards were linked to the bank accounts of ration card-holders. There are 1,38,67,107 ration card-holders across the 13 districts of AP; of these, the iris’ of 76,412 cardholders have successfully been scanned in the month of July, while the iris scans of 85,038 persons have failed. 

Similarly, the fingerprint scans of 16,03,494 cardholders have failed. Hundreds of complaints about the improper functioning of ePos machines and the failure of online transactions have been filed.
