As peo­ple rushed to rail­way sta­tions to book out­sta­tion tick­ets in bulk, in a bid to ex­change old Rs500 and Rs1,000 ban­knotes, rail­ways de­vised ways to en­sure there is no mis­use.

The min­istry re­vised its re­fund pro­ce­dure for tick­ets booked over the counter from Novem­ber 9 to 11 — re­fund for can­cel­la­tions above Rs10,000, booked dur­ing these three days, will be done through cheque or elec­tronic clear­ing ser­vice (ECS), a min­istry cir­cu­lar is­sued said. Mean­while, the city’s traf­fic po­lice have de­cided to stop col­lect­ing fines in cash. “We will go com­pletely cash­less by the end of this month. No con­sta­ble will col­lect cash (fine) any­where in the city,” JCP (traf­fic) Milind Bharambe told HT. Of­fend­ers will be given an ar­ray of elec­tronic pay­ment gate­ways on the spot.

Also, to avoid spats with the public over scrapped notes, the as­so­ci­a­tion of petrol pump deal­ers will keep all pumps shut for seven hours after Fri­day mid­night.
