Demonetization was not the correct procedure which should have been implemented by the Modi government to eradicate black money. It was actually a very foolish step to utterly harass a mere mass of people throughout the country. And it had no positive output as such only a number of honest and innocent people who had no black money sacrificed their lives in this scam of government. It was just false hope given by the government to the public. And the ache din is still pending. Honest countrymen who pay taxes in time, they stood in long lines of ATMs and banks while the rich black money holders did not even have to get out of their houses to deal with their black money. And it was rightly stated that Narendra Modi is the 2nd Muhammad bin Tughluq.

Banning 500, 1000 notes is just changing clothes. In short, it will affect the corrupt channels but this ban is not ready to uproot corruption in long term. The Government has introduced 2000 notes which will surely revive corrupts because bundles of 2000 notes will reduce stress on their soldiers and occupy less space. We have need to be more serious about all these corrupt channels rather putting ban on currency. Banking system should be more stronger to deal with these corrupt channels. A bridge is needed to impart the gap between all departments where corrupts can invest their corruptly hard earned money which is stolen by honest tax payers. To uproot all these corrupt channel we have need to bring change in our education system. Value addition is required in our education system.

Banning 500, 1000 notes is a very great attempt made by our Indian government to curb all the black money out. But still it can not be considered as the best way to uproot the corruption as if it has compelled people to remove their black money then on the contrary, it has also wasted time by standing on long queue in bank, created lots of problems to poor people.

On the other hand the rich people again won the battle by using their contacts thereby converting their money black to white.

In between middle class people get trapped. Meanwhile, many bogus notes were also printed.

So, according to me, it can uproot the corruption but it needs much proper implementation with all the forthcoming solutions.

Hello friends.

According to me, the demonstration is a good step against black money. But like a coin, everything has positive and negative aspects. The positive aspect is that the peoples from rural areas came to known that what is banking and how it works and came to know that our country is going to be the change we have to change with them.

Atleast they come to known what is going in our country. And the negative aspect is that this demonstration didn't affect too much on rich people. Because rich people have their direct contact with bank officials they changed their currency. But the real problems were faced by normal peoples. Beacuse during demonostration period people had spent houres and houres by standing in que for changing their currency.

Thank you.

Hello Friends,

According to my point of view, Demonetization was the excellent plan to got black money back. But what will government do if the mentality of the indians are corrupted. Getting black money back is not only the government responsibility, it's ours responsibility too. It was us because of this plan failed. It was us because of which gdp decrease from 8 01% to 7.11%. During the demonetization period the rich people makes their setting with the bank employees and only suffering faced by the poor people. It was very difficult for poor people to stand in the bank line for many hours.

But demonetization has some positive effects too. Because of this, at least poor people learn to makes their account in bank and they got knowledge about bank and interest. And also After demonetisation, villagers, local vendors and farmers are slowly getting used to digital transactions. Once they get used to it, they will realize it as a mode of advancement.

I think the step of demonetisation taken by the government was big. There are pros and cons to every action but I will talk more about pros first as it is more relevant.

Demonetisation has helped to surpass the threshold of doing payments online, initially, people used to hesitate to do online transaction but after demonetisation people had no choice rather than doing the transaction, according to the survey online transaction has increased from 0 to 66.6 percentage. This also helps in keeping an eye on the black market.

The government was expecting to retrieve all the black money but it didn't happen as said by RBI officer that 99.6 percent of the old notes have been received.

I think demonetization is very good idea of Indian Government Because due to this digital payment become popular and it is necessary for each country. But ban of 500 and 1000 notes has not gotten 100% success to remove.

Black money because many rich person distribute their money to their worker as their salary as well as many bought diesel and patrol etc. As everyone felt that during demonetization only general people face lots of problem and stands for hours in line before atm but rich have direct contact with bank officers so they directly got their money from bank. So this idea couldn't show it's effectiveness so much.

Hi all,

I believe that Ban on 500, 1000 notes was just changing clothes! as it moved from common man to the ruling Govt, But also it was a good initiative with bad planning taken by the Govt of India.

In some Latin American countries demonetization occurs frequently so as to route out corruption in the Govt sector, so we also should do this more often but with proper planning and not giving the cash away first to the rich and the politically influential people.

In my opinion, demonetization is the biggest leap towards the national development. Yes, the ban of 500 and 1000 Rs notes came as a shock to the Indian public, and yes, common man did face a lot of problems but we cannot ignore the fact that this decision also leads to the eradication of corruption to a very large extent if not fully. Nothing comes without a price, we had to pay the price of discomfort for a few days, but eventually good results have been seen. Now it is also true that people who are corrupted will always pave out a way for themselves, but because of this, keeping quiet and never accepting a change is not an alternative. I think a ban of currency was not a cloth changing game and even if it was, we still cannot overlook the benefits it did to the society and the corruption that it removed.

Hence we can say that it was one of the corruption freed changing decision that bjp government took on 8 nov. 2017.

Hello friends,

Banning 500, 1000 rupees notes is a great initiative taken by the government, though it gives a hard time for a while but did its work. People may face some problem regarding changing of their notes but because of it, we can say that government is active and aware of the black money. Demonetisation help government to fight against corruption. And also there are some disappointment regarding implementation. While many people who have black money may able to change it by their own way of making deals with the other people.

Hence, the conclusion is that demonetisation help to uproot the corruption at its level while it also works just changing clothes!

In my point of view, it is just one step to restrict the corruption. The government has to take numerous steps to uproot it. Its true, it took out all the black money from the society which was in the form of old 500 and 1000 notes. But in recent news, it is found that many people exchanged their old notes with the new notes with the help of bank managers and other brokers. They paid a lot for exchange. It was the only solution for some time. Again, the reality becomes the same as the previous. Even 2000 note is easy to hide in form of black money. It's a bad impact could be seen during the ban, it helped many people to earn in the wrong way. Till the current scenario, the ban of notes of 500 & 1000 is just changed its clothes.

Due to this no doubt, the black currency is almost uprooted but the fact is due to this the people suffered so much especially the women who saved money for difficult situations of upcoming life.

Hello everybody,

In my opinion, on one hand, Demonetization has partially uprooted the corruption. And as to develop any country, some decisions must be taken by the government that may not please you always but may correct the things by giving little discomfort to you. So did this "Demonetization". Up to an extent it unveiled many people's black money and still counting.

And on the other hand, in recent Lok Sabha meet when Rahul Gandhi asked Modiji about 1600 times profit made by Amit Shas"s son, Modiji was speechless. Because their own parties candidates are corrupted. So if these politicians are just doing all this for the sake of politics and their party winning the elections then it's no less than merely changing clothes.

Well, we can say that because of banning the 500 & 1000 notes there are many pros and cons both socially and personally.

If we consider socially, then I must say that the overall corruption rate have been decreased in the last two years and many people like big business tycoons who have avoided paying taxes have got their properties ceased and even their money was taken by the government.

Now let's just get into other flow, there are even many people who earned money legally and have paid their taxes in time. Buy just because of having liquid cash at their home they became helpless and could do nothing and lost all their money. But even in this case, there are some people who have political help so they got benefited. But what the point? if you want to stop corruption, it should be stopped in such a way that not even a single person who had sincerely earned should be affected, because it cost not a single life, but his family and their future.

So, I conclude by saying that although corruption rates have decreased than earlier, it isn't the way.

Demonitization It was the biggest step which Modi government took in order to reduce corruption, everything comes with the pros and cons they had tried so much but I think they didnot planned that well. Because banning of 500 and 1000 rs note leads to so many hurdles for the common peoples on the other side the corrupt peoples invested their money in other assests like gold, diamond etc so I think this step didnot work completely or it comes out just like changing clothes.

Good Evening all,

This Nishi Raju.

Demonetization was one of the biggest currency treats that our country faced. It was implemented on 8th November 2016 under the Modi government with the main aim of reducing the corruption. In my point of view it helped the government to reduce corruption but not completely stop it. This is because most of the people invested their black money in real estates and also in other assets such as gold etc. But when the 500 and 1000 Rs. Notes were stopped the day to day activities of the most common man was unmanageable. The process was a great cost to the government but a proper outcome could not be received from it. The next day after the demonetization was announced the BSE Sensex and NIFTY fell over 6%. Hence the overall idea was just another level of changing clothes and nothing more.

Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced the idea to ban 1000, 500 notes with the intention to reduce the corruption as people deposit there old notes in the bank for the newer ones and increase the GDP rate of the people. As of sudden like a flash, he put his idea of "Removal of 500, 1000 notes" into the public. There were many problems with the unavailability of the money at the beginning. People used to stand for a long time in Q's to get money. Keeping all aside, Do we really get any change out of it?

Clearly, my answer is NO. Its like, in order to the caught crocodile (People having black money) water (old notes) is cleared from the pond which leads to extinct of fish (common people) , as they might forget that Crocodile can even leave on land that is the entire hurdle is to the common man.

I think everything comes with pros and cons. Although the government tries its level best to eradicate corruption. But, I think the planning was not adequate. That's why demonetization has not a good impact. But, this is not only the responsibility of the government. This is the responsibility of all the citizen in the country. We cannot fully blame the government that demonetization is not 100% fruitful. Yes, middle-class peoples face many problems during demonetization but, there is also the good impact of demonetization like new taxpayers increases, the digital transition also increases (87 crores to 138 crores), after demonetization government cancelled the licence of more than 2.2 lakh fake companies, more than 7.5 lakh fake notes were confiscated, there is also decrease in terror funding.

In my opinion, this is the good step to bring black money. We know very well that corruption can't be removed in one or two weeks. And if all the citizen will take participation in it then becomes easy to do this.

It is a really good topic for us and for our country, If there is a positive change, there is development, It hampers very life of normal people because they do not bank account or saving money day by day whatever they earn, they expense. It hampers so many PSU and industry also, it also decline our economics, It does not measure a way to uproot corruption because who had huge money, they planned properly to save money, if it would have executed properly then Most of the corrupted person might have caught, but not executed fairly. It was an only harassing way for normal people.

They have to stand all the day to change the money. Some of old people loss their lives die to standing all the day because of lack of proper arrangements. Of course lot of corrupted people caught red-handed. It is very easy to get change the black money into white through many ways where as it is difficult only for common people. The factories also run on losses because of this demobilisation. Almost one year we faced lot of problems. It maybe success if the government took proper facilities regarding to this.

It doesn't bring out any black money from any biggest black money holders in India.

Hello everyone.

There is always two sides of a coin. None of them can be ignored similarly, this plan has also pros and cons. The main aim of this is to prevent corruption, funding of terrorist, exposure of black money. We know very well that corruption can't be uprooted in one or two weeks. Our country is so much indulging by corruption that it requires time to get overcome from this. Banned of old currency, linking your accounts with your Aadhar digital payments and so on are the stones with the help of which we can build a bridge to overcome from the specific problems and obviously it needs time. No miracle will happen in some years but yes its a good initiative.

Now, the cons. The govt should arrange proper facilities for changing currency. We all saw in news that there were huge queues in front of ATMs, some people died, some suffered from other health-related problems while standing in the queue. People who thought if they went to the bank to change their black money then obviously they got arrested so they destroyed our currency. They threw that currency in river, dustbins, on roads and so on. There was a huge loss of currency because of these things. Though it was black money they didn't contribute that money to the welfare of our country still it was a loss to our currency by destroying it in those ways.

At the time of demonetization we suffered from some problems but now we have successfully adopt that change.

So conclusively Demonetisation is like a injection to get rid of the illness of our country.

In my point of view, there is no change in Indian economy after demonitization. After announcement of demonitization I think it would be helpful for the uprooting of corruption of India and it results in economic growth of India. The idea of demonitization is very good but it is not properly implemented. After ban of 500 and 1000 the middle class people are struggled and in that struggle also they take it in a positive way because they thought that it is first step for uprooting the corruption in India.

In my opinion, demonetisation hasn't done any good, in fact, it has created many setbacks such as many of the industries were shattered, lakhs of workers lost their jobs.

India's growth rate has been reduced due to demonetisation. During the demonetisation period, people faced a problem because there was no management done by the government to provide new currency to the public.

People get lined up for hours for withdrawal of money from ATM. Some people lost their lives while standing to get money from the ATM.

And as we all read the news that on that time there are some cases that a large amount of cash is drowned in rivers and there are cases too that a large amount of cash is transferred to relative to whom they didn't talk from many years they get cash.

So the conclusion is as for what cause it has happened the objective is achieved for some level they are able to restrict the flow of black money.

Demonetization was one of the most brave and bold decision of Indian government. It was a move against black money, counterfeit currency and to abolish the funds for terrorism. But we cannot say that the demonetization was a success. Let us analyse it's targets one by one, starting from black money. It is a fact that India had thousands of crores of black money before demonetization and most of them might be in the form 1000 and 500 rupee notes. But most of the currencies that were circulating before demonetization have returned to RBI after demonetization. It is clear that the people who had black money with them have found their way to change it to new currency. Counterfeit currency of the new currency note also was caught from smugglers in a few weeks after demonetization. So this objective also was not achieved. Terrorism activities activities had reduced for a few weeks after demonetization, no incident was reported even in Jammu kashmir for a few weeks. But even terrorists have found their way to find the fund for their activities. So it is clear that demonetization could not achieve it's objectives. Let's check what were it's impact on the life of a common man. People had o stand in front of ATMs for hours to withdraw the new currency. Remember that all of them were standing for the money they earned, not for a money given free. Some people died paralyzing while standing in the queue. I have read news about a girl who had a kidney problem and had no money to treat it. Many good people helped her and made the money for her surgery. This money was deposited in bank before demonetization. But because of the restriction on the withdrawal of money from an account and shortage of currency they didn't get the money in time for her surgery and she died. Demonetization caused a deduction in the GDP of India. So I cannot say that demonetization was a right decision.

You should note that the government had very good intention behind demonetization. The government was aware of problems it was going to create, but still it took courage to do it. But I don't think it succeeded as much as thought.

When demonetization was announced, it was a big surprise for everyone. Most of the people welcomed this, may be because most of the people liked were on government's side. The government said this will curb the financing of terrorist activities and will eradicate black money. People had never seen this kind of thing before, and they believed it, they had really too much expectations. They thought this demonetization is going to bring miraculous changes. But today they aren't feeling much changes.

So did it fail completely? Or why it did not succeed as thought?

The demonetization did affect terrorists. They could not convert the money to new notes. So of course it the terrorist activities reduced for some time. But the terrorists are mostly funded by Pakistan or gulf countries. So after some time, they could able to receive money like before.

If we talk about corruption, the people who had made money by illegal ways or the people who had hidden their income to prevent taxes got enough time and enough ways to convert into new cash. But people who had considerably more money had no ways but to deposit it in bank. So the at least most of the money came under banking, which also provided capital. But there were large number of people who had deposited more money. One, it can't make out which money is honest one and which money was earned illegally, so the government could not make all people to ask to pay taxes. But of course it made big tax hiders make them pay. But as most people's money have come under banking, in future government can make more easily more people tax payers.

And because of demonetization people understood how corruption can be reduced by using banking and also the importance of digital payments. India saw big improvement in digital payments after demonetization.

So, the corruption can't be much controlled by demonetization, but corruption prevention wasn't the only intention behind demonetization. Demonetization will definitely bring positive impact on Indian economy. So demonetization is not big success, but not a failure.

Hi guys,

In my point of view, demonetization has a postive as well as some negative aspects.

Plus point of demonetization is that is has stopped fundings to terrorist agencies and also stopped corruption and black money to a larger extent. Its disadvantages are that enough time was given by our government To public to convert their black money into white as there was no curb on buying of gold etc. People had to suffer in long queues in front of bank and many bank employees died due to overburden.

It was a good initiative by the govt but was not completely successful.

Dear all,

Demonetisation of Rs.500 and Rs.1000 was announced by prime minister Narendra Modi on 8th Nov 2016, . It was a shock to the Indian public. The intention of implementation as said by the govt was 1. To curb financing of terrorist activities, 2. To stop the circulation of counter fiet currency and 3. To eradicate black money.

It was a welcome move, and was successful in curbing circulation of counter fiet currency and affected funding of terrorist activities, to some extent. It has also succeeded in reducing cash transaction and encouraged digital transactions.

But, the most affected were low and middle-class people, who suffered a lot standing in huge ques, some of them died standing in crowds and some died not withstanding the shock.

In my opinion, demonetisation has nothing to do with corruption, many of the black money holders had found their ways to exchange currency and govt did not take any stringent actions against them. As said by one of our friend above it is the intention of public having more and more and most of the times corruption is due to offerings by people, the anxiety of getting their work done at any cost. This can only be changed through a change in mindset of the public.

Ban of 500, 1000 notes is like a test case for black money holders. They just learned how to solve this case when the face and not only this they also learn how to store, exchange and transfer black money whenever they may these. So, what I would like to conclude is 'Ban of notes' made nothing of uprooting the corruption instead it learnt them how to face that situations and overcome them.

In order for any plan to be successful, it is 1% idea and 99% execution and the same applies here. Banning 500, 1000 notes was a good initiative by the government but was not executed well. It helped rich people in converting white money into black money. Middle class people were the affected ones as they stood in front of banks in queues for hours and the rich people got their money changed into white. The only positive is that people started using online payment applications like paytm, bheem etc. For rich people it was just change of clothes, but still it left footprint in their mind that government can bring some other initiative to uproot corruption.

Yeah! The statement can be true. But there is not only negative effects like conversion of black money to white of big business man or some corrupt leaders. While most of the money has come in the eye of bank after demonetization and this reason is more powerful.

And if we say about the impact on poor people or middle class people was also there but all this was done for good for people. Because of demonetization many people forced to use online mode of payment which is also more valid reason than suffering in queue of ATM. And also rich people use their debit cards for online transaction that's why they didn't come in notice of people who are in queue.

This is a step in eradicating courption but in different manner than people usually think.

Hello everyone. We are in the society that is surrounded by full of corruption. Demonetisation has a major impact only in poor and middle-class people. There is no eradication of corruption after implementation. Many rich people and other corruptionist have invested their money in Share market, gold and real estate. Only middle class and below poverty people are affected but it's just changing clothes for rich and other corrupted people. Thus demonetisation neither reduce nor eradicate corruption.

According to me, everything comes with some pros and cons. Although the government tried it's level best to eradicate corruption from its base. But, I think the planning procedure was not adequate. More stringent measures should have been taken. Despite of all the efforts, it's not only the sole responsibility of the government alone, we the citizens should also contribute to this matter. And it is only possible if we remain self content with whatever we have. The desire to have more is the main reason behind this corruption problem. So, I think this action could have been better if we ourselves try to put some efforts into changing our mindset.

Dear All,

Yes, it is a good step, the government has been taken for demonetization.

But this time, it was not succeeded as it only affects the poor or middle-class family. Neither any minister nor any businessman is in the queue at ATM for Exchanging money. The Government has done this just to make India corruption free but it was affecting only poor people whose family is standing in a queue outside of ATM as a daily routine it affects poor people daily income source. Hence, Demonetization is just changing clothes I would like to say that Government are doing good in the field of developing India but they should be taken care of middle class or poor family first.

The intention behind banning notes is noble, but corrupt people always find ways to escape such traps. As a result, a number of corrupt people managed to exchange the old notes to the new one by joining hands with bank officials. Though it was strategically planned to announce just before midnight, some people still managed to get rid off black money by acquiring some wealth. Banning notes resulted in common people standing in front of banks in queues for hours while corrupt people had already new cash. Some amount of success could be found due to this drastic decision but it was a disaster to many middle-class men and women. It should have been planned properly. Truth to be told it is a mix of changing clothes as well as uprooting corruption.

According to my point of view, the decision of banning on 500, 1000 notes are just changing clothes. IT is correct that demonetization is an important step which is taken by government but it is not implemented correctly. Demonetization is just affect the poor or middle class people, small business etc but if we noticed then we saw that none of rich person was standing in front of bank for changing the notes, it's just because they already find a way through which they convert their black money into white money. Corruption could not be stop completely by Demonetization, it can be stop by secretly investigation on each officer, minister or other person which get high power as the perspective of their duty or there job etc. When each and every rule will be apply on everybody equally as these are applied on common people then corruption will not only reduce but it can be completely disappear from our country.

Ban on 500 and 1000 rupee not is very courageous decision in recent years. It's aim to get India corruption free in financial means. Banks played an important role to perform that cumbersome task and it also perform well even in very inverse situations they perform their duties with full dedication and integrity. But the other government debt related to this decision doesn't do well like income tax debt we are expecting that they can verify the account holder who deposited much cash during demonetisation. Unless that all debt does not perform their duties how it is possible to make demonetisation successful up to some extent they only change their money. Govt can also instruct their concern dept to do their duties in their time frame almost 2 years going to happen no any outcome are there so very little corruption is uprooted I hope government may do some extraordinarily work to make demonetisation successful.

Every black money holder had taken his/her own steps. They made their life, money safe but what about an individual. Government has received only 30 percent of the money what about the rest.

Even the people who are the holders of black money can even link up with the bank employees by offering them bribe. So, the rest of the money what government is expecting is not back. Further improvement is essential in Demonetisation.

Hello friends.

Here, I will say that demonization of 500, 1000 notes is not just changing clothes. Yes, I agree on both major points that the idea of demonization was good and the implementation was not proper. But after demonetization govt has done a good job.

Let us take one example that you have one bucket which has some holes and one cannot see it by naked eyes after filling the water you realize that the bucket has some holes and then you can fix that holes. But you have to find that holes fast otherwise the water will drain.

Here also same theory takes place that the govt has made the policy which they think that it will work but after implementation, they realize that it is not working as they needed, it has some loopholes so then the govt tried to fill that loopholes by introducing new schemes for marriages and student etc. But the govt has taken much time than needed in implementing the schemes and that goes against the government.

Yes, at some instinct the demonization has done good work in decreasing corruption but not in the way that govt needed too.

If you have 500 or 1000 notes then frame it. It depicts an end of an era. The sudden, surprising and bold move by the government to ban the denominations of 500 and 1000 notes. It left all in panic. As we that every change /revolution need a bit of screifice.

A huge and costly dent on black money.

1) The prominent effect on that people who has the money in the form of currency. This will hit the unaccounted money more effectively because most black money is hidden in the form of 500or 1000. The ban will render the 500 and 1000 notes useless.

2) this move will enormously effect the terrorist org. And arm buyers so they can never be able to legalize the possesing money.

3) they can also be able to remove chunk of counterfeit from circulation.

4) the income tax dept. And bank also keep their eye on the big amount of deposit or tranfer to other account. The black money increases the inflation as the cash transation is most prevalent in India. This will tighten the noose on illegal and benami assets.

5) if someone want to return black money the can give and it will benefit the nation itself.

6) the new 500 and 2000 notes are more secure and difficult to fake.

Corruption just changing clothes.

1) this cannot be uprooted completely because it is human tendency and nature we can control it by just ourselves.

2) the only it affects the citizens and the small time corrupt people. The big fish escapes from small brushes.

3) most of the corrupt and imposter person are hide their black money in the form of gold, jewellery, precious stones etc.

4) The people will get another chance to make unaccounted money.

5) more black money than in India is stored in the tax havens and it nearly impossible to get that unaccounted wealth from outside.

It is a start. There is no panacea for the human tendency towards greed and corruption. It is not a victory but it is a victory nonetheless.

In my opinion, demonetization is mostly kind of changing clothes more than tackle with corruption, Exploring black money.

It definites that it was a powerful, bold step taken by our honourable PM Shri Narendra Modi but unfortunately it is not becoming a success. According to me, it is most kind of changing clothes because whatever the circulation of the money was 99 percent of that has been coming back to RBI. Therefore there is no cracking of black money. Many corrupt people were able to change there high-value denomination 500 and 1000 rupee note very easily by shaking hands with bank managers. In case of corruption high-value currency is very useful as it is easily carriable and of course high value due to which they could keep the huge value of money in a single file, therefore it was good to demonetize to crack that corrupt money. But again a high value of currency note 2000 rupee has been coming which has high value than before, therefore this will again lead to corruption. That is why I want to say this is mostly changing cloth. It has a very little significant crackdown on black money which is more than the cost that has been spending in demonetization. Not only that most middle class and poor people were suffered more.

But its not work in proper way because of this most of the middle and lower class family suffer so much. Thet have to stand in long queue to change their note and the other side for rich people its just like to change a cloth from the shop.

As we can saw easily that intially this step is welcomed by almost everyone even by middle class and poor people in a hope of helping government and discarding black money and ofcourse corruption from society though they are the part of society which have to face a lot of problem during this phase. People have to stand in lengthy queue for exchanging notes, they even couldn't have sufficient money to buy their daily use products.

Also, as claimed by some news reports, rich people had information about this demonetsation before its actual announcement so they smartly converted their illicit money and don't have to face a lot of problems as faced by lower class. Societies. In addition to this as reported by some politicians and economist most of the illegal money is in the form of jewellery, properties so this banning has no such good effect on discarding black money from society.

As reported on august 2017 that 99% of banned currency was deposited well in banks leading to only Rs 14000 crore of total denominised money had been discarded leading to total failure of highy preplanned stratergy.

A Decision on Ban of 500/1000 notes was beneficial because of following reasons:

2) after long run (5-10 year) peoples will attract towards digital payment system (it will create transparency).

3) the number of the taxpayer was increased.

However, the decision to note ban was not pre-planned. Hence, Indian peoples face lots of difficulties like standing in the queue for an hour/shortage of cash in bank / many industrialists suffer losses / our GDP went down etc.

Everyone knows that the implementation was not done in a right way. In my opinion, the implementation could have been done in a right way, if 2000 rs had not been introduced, instead, 500 and 1000 rs were introduced. This 2000 RS serves as a medium for collecting black money.

Secondly, Rising of black money could have been avoided by decentralized or blockchain technology.

Hello everyone,

As per my opinion, banning 500, 1000 notes is just changing clothes I would like to explain my thoughts which are self-explanatory for the favor of my point.

No doubt it was a good initiative by our honourable PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji on 8th November 2016 in order to stop corruption in the form of black money and help the overall economic growth of country although this decision was taken by very suddenly and hence no adverse effect on rich people.

Secondly, middle-class people suffered a lot by this decision because there was no new currency in the bank for being a replacement of old 500 and 1000 rupee note and there was large queue of people at that time for replacement of currency hence people suffered a lot.

Thirdly, by banning 500 and 1000 rupee notes the share market was drastically down in the next consecutive 2 months from the date of demonetization and significant fall were observed in %GDP of India by our economist.

In favor of my point I would like to enlighten the fact during a decrease in the % GDP of India many people unemployed due to lack of jobs in the market and most importantly as per RBI report 99% money was recovered so this decision does not give any help to make a full stop of black money.

In the end, I would like to conclude my point that banning 500 and 1000 rupee notes were just changing clothes nothing else.

Thank You.

Hi all, This is sunil, According to me the step taken by the Indian gov. to eradicate black-money through banning 500 and 1000 Rs. notes. Middle class people and poor people suffered a lot . Even roadside shops, small-scale business and daily wage labours were suffered a lot due to the following.

1) Unavailability of new 500 and 2000 rs cash.
2) Long queue at the ATM.
3) Many of the ATM's were closed.
4) Unable to pay to the daily wage labours.

At the same time, so many bank managers got arrested for exchanging old notes with new notes for the commission. There were rich people who exchanged old notes with new notes in the underground without anyone's notice. We can clearly say that this is completely a failure because its evident that GDP has been decreased after this ban. But in long run maybe after 5- 10 years there will be a good result due the following:
1) Introduction of Digital payments.
2) Taxpayers are increased.
3) Gov can have each and every citizen account in their notice.
4) Addhar and PAN attachment in all the bank accounts.

Overall this is not helpful for the Middle class and poor people. Anyways rich people will not suffer due to this ban, its evident by seeing So many old notes were thrown on the road.
The government should implement this kind of ban by keeping wellness of middle-class people and poor people in their mind.

Yeah, demonitisation is really an important thing to discuss in India nowadays. It can be said good or bad for the economy based on the situation whwn it is done. 500, 1000 rupee notes carry 80% weightage of Indian currency, so without a long term planning if it is done then none but the stupids will support this. And if the issue is black money then I will say India is a country of 121 crore people, so there will be many ways to do the corruption, in India 70% rupees are in the account of 1% people, and after demonitisation, no such names are published so it is proved they found an alternate process to black the money, and governments also couldn't solve the issue till now, so from the government point of view, this is such a stupid thing for that time.

Hello friends,

Demonetization of 500 and 1000 notes was a good initiative but not a pre-planned process. Banning high currency notes created currency shortage for every citizen around the country. Making the entire population to stand in front of the banks, if it is a planned activity then measures will be taken in advance to handle the problem. The people sufferings which were published in the news articles, social media and others prove it is completely an unplanned measure taken by the government. Neither of the black money holders name published yet, though they got a list of names from Swiz bank.

The main reason behind according to government is to curb black money, money laundering activity and terror funding. But in actual through these initiatives by the government lead to downward growth in GDP and took a long time to restrain its position. Through this process the only advantage is taxpayers increased, digital payment is perceptible. It's up to the decision makers from the above points it's uprooted or changing clothes.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

I am Sakshi. In my opinion, demonetization was a powerful step taken by honourable prime minister Narendra Modi on 8 November 2016.

It's was very good step by the government to take out of black money but their result was bad.

As we know many peoples have to face a problem there were around thousands of people standing outside of the bank and ATM in a long queue and we saw only that people standing who don't have a black money no one saw the rich people stand in a long queue.

People suffered a lot of problem in that time. There was a shortage of new note of 500 and 2000 in the bank. The ATM was also empty in that time. The net server was also down in that time but what was the result how many people were found out who have a black money.

So in my opinion, demonetization is just changing clothes.

Thank you.

I am Prakash.

Today topic is digital payment secure or not. So I Think This idea good for growth our the country. We can do it an easy online transaction and save the time.

And also black money cannot be hidden in digital banking.

Most of the person standing in a queue outside of the bank so apply this idea after that easily solve the problem.

But some demerits Most of hacker hake website so before apply this idea make A secure side.

And Rural people don't aware of digital payment so First of all, the government provides education in rural areas after that, all these things are possible.

According to me, demonetization is good but we have to look after both the faces of a coin. Demonetization is good but everything has its own prons and cons we couldn't neglect it. Demonetization is a good step to take out black money but here is the problem start thousand of people standing in the queue for so many hours outside the bank and there is too much shortage of rs500 and 2000 notes and even ATMs were also empty when ATM got filled there were no of people gathered outside the bank in a long queue so demonetization is good but implementation is not available.

Hello, everyone.

Our topic is related to demonetization. I had gone through all of your comments. Every one is saying that implementation is not good. My opinion is quite different I think implementation was also very good. First, you are going to ban money and don't want to make it public before a proper time, because of you make it public then everyone will dilute their money anywhere so your main intention will be ruined. Another thing is that if you think deeply that gov bring an scheme of Jan dhan khata so that everyone has their own account and they can submit there money their. So it was the first step implementation by the government in the way of demonization since it was a very confidential issue so gov have to announce it suddenly so that the corruption doesn't have much time to take any action. Everyone is talking about rich people in our banking system anybody can submit money in anybody's account. So if a person is rich then they will send their servant to submit money that's why you can not see the rich in the queue. After demonization, one year the GDP decreased but after that it is in very good condition and the revenue generation by tax is also increased. One very important thing is that 500 and 1000 is our major currencies for global trading. And if something written on notes is not acceptable and the amount of such notes was very much so new currency removed this problem too.
