Becoming a cashless society painlessly is an ideal situation. Fewer cash transactions in an economy can help bring down transaction costs, instances of economic offences and street crimes.
It needs some disincentives for withdrawing cash beyond a certain limit as well as incentives to encourage those who switched to digital payments systems to stay with that mode. Above all, governments — both State and Central— need to ensure that digital trails exposed by this transition are assiduously tracked to maximize revenue gains. The campaign #CashlessbanoIndia was aimed at establishing this belief of going paper-free and adopting the cashless techniques of money transaction and remittance.
Aim: Create visibility and buzz in the market about MasterCard and build-up to the main activity day Pre buzz activity to have an Inflatable Structure which will be placed outside HDFC bank / Shops.

For the final day of each campaign, prerequisites were taken into consideration and the Nukkad Artists prepared themselves and rehearsed. Video clips, sound bites and presentations were downloaded and prepared by the production team and were incorporated in the van setup.
