New Delhi: The Niti Aayog on Thursday made a presentation on the proliferation of digital payments in the country and how it is transforming the Indian economy to the parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance, which is also looking into the November demonetisation measure, official sources here said. The presentation to the Committee, headed by Congress Lok Sabha member M. Veerappa Moily, was made by the Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant, along with other senior officials.
 
The Committee, which has already taken views of Reserve Bank of India Governor Urjit Patel and senior Finance Ministry officials on the demonetisation of high-value notes, will meet again on July 27, the sources said.
 
It is expected to finalise its report on the matter by the end of August, he added.
 
On November 8 last year, the government scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes in a move designed to check black money, counterfeit currency and terror financing. The shortage of currency following the move gave a push to digital transactions in the country.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
