The PM’s address on demonetisation, first in Hindi and then in English, ended past 9 pm on 08 November. I was deeply impressed with paytm’s decision to flash cover jacket advertisements with Modi’s photograph in national dailies on 09 November morning. The advertisement promptly and imaginatively attempted to cash on the Prime Minister’s request for switching to cashless transactions.

The swift action taken by the client and his ad agency, which worked at such electrifying speed to book space with the dailies and design the copy and advertisement material, was electrifying! It was a significant opportunity for such e-payment companies to showcase the benefits to boost the number of cashless transactions. How wonderfully paytm cashed on this! There is as yet no widespread charge of leakage!
