Prasad said, ‘The credit card industry was given a boost after demonetization. I think the coronavirus epidemic is going to be bigger than demonetization. After demonetization, cash transactions were replaced by digital. If we get even 5% of that, that will be important. So, we are looking at that. The cash you spend can actually be through the card. Now if you stay at home for a long time and are not going out, you will probably want to make your home better. ‘ 

Prasad said that if people live in homes, they would like better products. He may want to get a big television, a big freeze because he is not going to eat outside and will cook at home. We are looking at this type of trend. People will feel that now our home is an office, it should be made better. In such a situation, they would like to make their home better.
