COAI Thanks Government for allowing Users to Continue top-up
Payments with Old Rs 500 notes
New Delhi, Delhi (NewsVoir) 1st December, 2016 The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) thanks the Hon ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Government s decision to permit the use of old Rs500 notes for prepaid mobile recharges. This will allow customers to use mobile services without disruption and ease their anxiety, allowing them continuous communication, telephony being an essential service.
Commenting on the positive move, COAI Director General Rajan Mathews said: We are delighted that the Government acceded to our request prioritising consumer interest, so that citizens can continue to top-up and use mobile phones, which are an essential service. COAI thanks the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for leading an extremely responsive and sensitive government and congratulates the Prime Minister on this historic move. Despite initial teething problems, demonetisation will immensely benefit the nation by driving increased digital transactions, promoting transparency, boosting tax collection and ensuring social equity. COAI remains committed towards working closely with the government in furthering the government s vision of a digitally connected and fully empowered India
