All of this is very kind of them but many a times this can be a big pain! Surely there is a smarter way to do this?

Paytm, has found its way to the Great Indian Weddings.

Anya and Suchit have shared the Paytm QR Code, in their wedding card, which can be scanned and the money can be transferred instantly. According to the couple,

“this digital methodology is one of the most efficient way to collect, track and safe-keep the shagun that is received in the marriages. In Indian marriages there is highest exchange of money and going digital is the way to go towards a cashless wedding!”
