The robust digital payments ecosystem in India has changed the way we buy everyday items. From the grocery store to a street food vendor, practically every business now accepts payments online. It obliviates the need to even carry cash when we go out. Just take out your phone, scan the QR code for the payment vendor and pay any amount without any extra charges. Recently, we saw how a vegetable vending lady found the perfect ‘jugaad‘ to add the digital payment option to her venture. Wondering what she did?

The reel was shared on Instagram by the popular page Maharashtra.farmer and was originally shot by another user named Rupali Alhat. In a short span of time, the reel has received over 12.6 million views and 1.4 million likes. “Smart maushi,” was the caption to the video.
