Even one of the greatest captains of all time decides enough is enough … Well done @msdhoni on an incredible leadership term .. #Dhoni

I think @msdhoni will go down as one of India’s most successful captains. He is a great man and still has a lot to offer Indian cricket.

— Michael Clarke (@MClarke23) January 4, 2017


“If he had quit as a player, then I would have the been the first one outside his house, having a dharna asking him to make a comeback. As a player, he is still a destroyer. He change fortunes of the game in a single over. India needs him as a player very very badly. I am happy that he has decided to stay on as a player,”

-Sunil Gavaskar


I congratulate @msdhoni on an illustrious career as Capt who led #TeamIndia to memorable victories in T20WorldCup 2007 & 2011 @ICC WorldCup!

First Cashless State “Goa”- Support to Modiji’s dream!

Goa will be the first state in India to go cashless from December 31.

Goa is probably going to be the First Cashless State in India to from December 31 2016, people can purchase any day to day life necessary things like vegetables, meat  or whatever else at one click on mobile.

“One thing we decided is that whenever India becomes a cashless society, Goa will become the first. We have to support the prime minister’s dream,” Defence minister Manohar Parrikar



Time to say bye-bye for the ‘Pickpocketing’!!!!!! 🙂 Now need to carry the wallet, purse or cash in your bag as everything will be one click far from you!

“The money on purchases will be debited to the person’s bank account,” chief secretary R K Srivastava

Steps to complete the transaction –

  1. You just have to enter *99# on your mobile phone ( any mobile phone, it’s not necessary, it should be smartphone).

2. Follow the instructions.

3. Every shopkeeper who has registered in bank would be given an MMID (Mobile Money Identifier)  code. Using that complete the transaction.

It will just take few seconds to transfer money from custom’er account to vendor’ account.


It’s big relief to the small shop-keepers who can’t buy ATM swipe machine. 🙂  If there is ATM swap machine then you can use that or you can use your credit cards too!

Awareness drive ‘how to operate the cashless transaction for vendors and small shops’ will be conducted on Monday in Punji ( in Goa ).


Cash transactions are not totally banned but this is first move to cashless India. There will be no limit to cashless transfer.

No fees will be charged for any of these transactions over the mobile.

Chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar

Defence minister Manohar Parrikar said that our mobile will become our bank. Once you’ll link your mobile number to our bank account then you can do any transactions.

Why ‘Goa’ as First Cashless State?




Goa is small state with 15 lakh population and about 17 lakh mobile users. There are 22 lakh bank accounts. It indicates, one person has more than one bank accounts. Most of the people are using debit/credit card for shopping so it’s easy to achieve the aim of cashless state.

Let’s Contribute to Dream of cashless India!
