Payworld has tied up with the State Bank of India to operate the scheme, it said.
The retailer will use the Payworld App installed on the smartphone by attaching the card reader to the phone.

“All he has to do is to swipe the walk in the customer’s Debit card, and on authorisation by the bank pay out the cash,” Payworld said.

Any person with a debit card can take out a maximum of Rs.2,000 in cash from this cash out facility of Payworld, which only provides technology and hardware to its retailers who opt for this service.
