We should not allow the banks to abolish cheque books.  How are we supposed to pay local tradesman.  Card readers can't work in areas with no mobile phone signal. If  locals were to keep a note of the trader's account no it would be totally insecure (especially if the customer keeps all his suppliers details on a computer).

Why is this idea important?

This is important because if implemented it would be yet another example of  things being made less convenient by technology.  In rural areas a householder could easily have 20 traders who provide him with services or goods.  How are we supposed to pay them? keep cash in the house all the time in case the window cleaner shows up – I don't think so!
