New Delhi: Amid the ongoing nationwide cash crunch, a tea-seller in RK Puram, Sector 9 in Delhi has started taking Paytm money for a cup of tea.

Speaking to CNN-News18, the tea-seller said,"I have been using Paytm since the past 10-15 days, and a lot of people are making their payments through it."

Initially, he faced problems in getting customers but the numbers increased with time. He now has 10-15 customers who pay him through Paytm daily.

"Paytm users are increasing. Now, I have 10 to 15 customers on a daily basis who pay me through Paytm." he said.

"The step taken by PM Modi is very good. Yes people are facing obstacles, but if they start using paytm most of their problems will be solved," he said hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his decision to demonetise Rs 500, Rs 1,000 currency notes.

At a time when ATMs are running out of money leading to serpentine queues outside banks, services of Paytm can be seen as a breather for both the customers and the local shop owners.
