Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) is trying to organise next month’s ODI match between India and England limiting cash transactions and encouraging digital mode of payment.
The state cricket body will also provide viewers with an option to buy tickets using debit/credit cards at the counters and expects to sell 25 per cent of the tickets online.
“Although we cannot go completely cashless, an attempt will be made to use less cash. Payment through online, cheques, drafts and through e-wallets will be encouraged by the Association,” OCA Secretary Asirbad Behera said on Sunday.
He said that while spectators can get tickets by paying cash up to Rs 2,000, digital transactions would be made above Rs 2,000.
The OCA would make available card-swipe machines at the ticket counters for the benefit of the people. Besides, ticket purchase can be done through e-wallet payment, he added.
