Some national newspapers carried full page advertisement from the private digital companies, congratulating Modi for his action against black money. 
 
The advertisement by Paytm, one of India’s most used digital payment service, said Modi has taken “the boldest decision in the financial history of Independent India!”
 
Freecharge, a digital wallet and payment service provider, in their advertisement asked merchants across India to join their network in order to accept digital money from their “millions of Freecharge users”. 
 
The advertisements indicate a push for a cashless economy.
