Ever since Prime Minister Modi put a sudden ban on the old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, there are a lot of stories doing rounds on the social media. In a recent one covered by ANI, they shared the story of a tea stall owner who has now started accepting online payments to help people with no hard cash.

The news agency tweeted an entire thread.
