President Pranab Mukherjee on
Parliamentarians over the
continued logjam in both
Houses and said "For God's
sake, do your job."
Ever since the winter session of Parliament began on
November 16, both the Lok
Sabha and the Rajya Sabha
have been repeatedly adjourned, as both ruling and
opposition MPs have squabbled over PM Narendra
Modi's November 8 decision
to scrap high value currency
The President is having
none of it.
"For God's sake, do your
job. You are meant to transact
business in Parliament. Disruption of Parliament is not
acceptable at all," Pranab
Mukherjee said.
Delivering the Defence
Estate Day Lecture 2016 on
"Reforms for a stronger Democracy", the President said
people send their representatives to Parliament to work
for the country and not to
agitate.He said he was concerned that disruption of
parliamentary work has become a "practice".
"Dharnas can be organised
anywhere else," he said, and
urged MPs to debate and dis-
cuss issues of public importance in Parliament.
Just yesterday, BJP stalwart LK Advani, too,
criticised MPs for holding up
Pariamentary proceedings.
Proceedings in the Lok
Sabha were disrupted for the
15th consecutive day today as
the Opposition continued to
engage in sloganeering demanding a debate on
demonetisation under a rule
that entails voting.
As soon as the House assembled, the leader of the
Congress in the Lok Sabha
Mallikarjun Kharge wanted to
raise an issue but Speaker
Sumitra Mahajan did not allow him to and started
Question Hour.
This prompted members
belonging to the Congress,
Trinamool Congress and
theLeft parties to rush into the
Well demanding a discussion
on the scrapping of Rs 1,000
and Rs 500 notes.
As Mahajan refused to
concede to the demand, Opposition members raised
slogans. As the din refused to
die down, an upset Speaker
warned the protesting MPs to
not disturb the entire House
through their protests. Members belonging to Samajwadi
Party and the NCP extended
their support to their opposition counterparts by standing
in the aisles along their seats.
"What is this? I am warning you. Please, please, I am
repeatedly telling you if you
want to debate, debate. But
don't disturb the whole
House," she said.
Amid the continued din,
the Speaker took up five
questions before adjourning
the House for nearly 20 minutes till noon.
With both the Lok Sabha
and the Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day without
transacting any significant
business, the logjam therefore
On the other hand, Lok
Sabha and Rajya Sabha will
have a four-day break from
Saturday with both Houses
on Thursday giving their nod
to recommendations made by
their respective Business Advisory Committees (BAC) to
declare December 12 a holiday. After one working day
on Friday, Parliament will
now meet on December 14,
as December 13 has been
declared a holiday on account
of Eid-e-Milad-un Nabi.
Leaders of some major parties had raised the issue, as in
some southern States the day
was observed on Monday.
Speaker Sumitra Mahajan
sought the approval of the
House in this regard during
the Zero Hour and members
supported it.

NEW DELHI, Dec 8 : Petrol,
railway tickets and insurance
policies of PSU companies will
cost less if bought through
debit/credit cards or other
digital modes, government said
today while announcing a slew
of measures to incentivise
cashless payments.
It also waived service tax
for payments up to Rs 2,000
made through cards and decided to do away with
transaction fee for payment to
central government departments and PSUs.
Finance Minister Arun
Jaitley announced that a discount of 0.75 per cent will be
offered on purchase of petrol
and diesel through either
credit/debit cards, e-wallets
and mobile wallets. This
would translate into a discount of 49 paise per litre of
petrol that is currently sold at
Rs 66.10 in Delhi. Similarly
on diesel, it would mean a
saving of 41 paise on every
litre bought at Rs 54.57.
Similarly, 10 per cent and
8 per cent discount will be
offered in case of general and
life insurance for buying new
policy or paying premium
online via PSUs websites.
Announcing 11 decisions
to promote digital transactions, he said that monthly
and seasonal suburban railway
through digital mode will get
0.5 per cent discount from
January 1.
Online booking of railway
tickets will get up to Rs 10
lakh of free accidental insurance cover. Those using
digital mode to pay for railway catering, accommodation,
retiring room will be entitled
to discount of 5 per cent.
The minister further said
10 per cent discount will be
available on use of digital
mode for paying for RFID or
fast-tags for highway toll.
The cost of these discounts, Jaitley said, "will be
borne by each of the organisation because most of these
discounts are offered by the
bodies which are run by central government or are PSU
The move follows a month
after government demonetised
Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes to
check black money, leading
to a severe cash crunch in the

Nearly 80 lakh passengers
use seasonal or monthly tickets on suburban railways,
largely in cash, spending
worth nearly Rs 2,000 crore a
As more and more passengers will shift to digital means
the cash requirement may get
reduced by Rs 1,000 crore per
year in near future, Jaitley
As much as Rs 1,800 crore
worth of petrol and diesel is
bought every day by nearly
4.5 crore customers and just
20 per cent of it is through
cards, he said, adding that in
last one month the percentage
of digital mode of payment
has doubled to 40 per cent.
The government, he said,
is targeting at least 70 per
cent of the daily sales to be
through cards or e-wallets/
mobile wallets to reduce cash
exchange at petrol pumps by
nearly Rs 2 lakh crore annually.
Also, public sector banks
have been advised that merchants should not be required
to pay more than Rs 100 as
monthly rental for PoS terminals/Micro ATMs/mobile
POS so as to bring small
merchants on board the digital payment ecosystem.
The move will benefit
about 6.5 lakh machines supplied by public sector banks
to merchants. With lower
rentals, more merchants will
install such machines and promote digital transactions.
In order to expand digital
payment infrastructure in rural areas, Jaitley said, the
NABARD will extend financial support to eligible banks
for deployment of 2 POS
ers to enable them to make
digital transactions at POS
Jaitley said 58 per cent out
of the nearly 14 lakh railway
tickets purchased everyday
are bought online. The discount offered now is expected
to add another 20 per cent
passengers to digital payment
"Hence nearly 11 lakh passengers per day will be
covered under the accidental
insurance scheme," he said.
Additionally, 5 pc discount on payment through
digital means would be given
on paid services like catering,
accommodation and retiring
rooms. Public sector insurance companies will provide
incentive, by way of discount
or credit, up to 10 pc of the
premium in general insurance
policies and 8 pc in new life
policies of LIC sold through
the customer portals, in case
payment is made through digital means.

ensure that the economy becomes less dependent on cash
"As of November 8, excessive amount of cash and a
very very limited amount of
digital transaction. There is a
cost of transacting in cash and
that cost of transacting in cash
has to be borne by the
economy, it is also be to
borne by the political system.
"These are costs which are
visible, there are cost which
are invisible. Excessive cash
can also lead a lot of malpractices and therefore in the long
run we are using this also as
an opportunity to move towards digitisation," he said.
On government exempting
card transactions below Rs
2,000 from service tax, he
said, there will be a revenue
implication as 70 per cent of
the transaction currently are
of less than that threshold.
The feedback from the industry is that the movement
to the digital economy is
"quite rapid," he said, adding
"this will certainly make India
into a less cash economy."
On whether the discounts
will be provided by the private sector, Jaitley said, "it is
PSUs which have taken this
decision, the private sector
has to decide in the world of
competition. They are free to
sell costlier petrol and face
the consequences of the market."
