Mahida, who had shot in to the limelight after proposing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name for Vadodara seat in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, has decided to go cashless at his tea stall. Customers can sip the tea at Kiran Mahida's stall opposite Khanderao Market and pay with debit card or e-wallet.
"I decided to get a swipe machine so that my customers are able to pay even if they don't have cash. I have been accepting cash all these years but after the demonetization, I decided to go for a card swipe machine. As a responsible citizen, I thought it is better if I do all the transactions through the bank," he said.
"Modiji made a roadside tea vendor like me and royal family member Shubhanginiraje Gaekwad proposer for his candidature. Now through demonetization, he has again given equality to the rich and the poor. It is a very good step to bring out the black money," said Mahida.
“We have to follow the rule of law. Also filing IT returns will help me get loans if I ever need," Mahida added.
He has already opened a current account in the Bank of Baroda's Khanderao Market branch and they will help him to get a GPRS-enabled swipe machine. He has also downloaded Paytm, the e wallet to accept payments from the customers.
