Demonetization: A small step to against black money


Demonetization: A small step to against black money

The CEO and Founder of Jan Ki Baat, Pradip Bhandari, attempts to find out the public opinion on demonetization. Bhandari spoke to Shyamveerji, who is an Ola cab driver by profession. Mr Shyaamveer claimed that the decision to demonetize the 1000 and 500 currency is a right one. The problems that have cropped up post-demonetization are just like any other reaction to a new practice, meaning that everything will normalize soon.

Demonetization came as a surprise to many when PM Modi declared his, and his government’s intention to clean the nation, on 8th November 2016. Getting rid of black money formed major chunk of Modi and BJP’s 2014 manifesto. Withdrawal of the legal tender of ?1000 and ?500 met with staunch resistance by some groups and was questioned by many. Though demonization was lauded for its noble goal, it was simultaneously critiqued for the loopholes it contained.

#JanJanKiBaat hopes to capture the pulse of the common man and subsequently, understand the direction in which public perception is heading, regarding demonetization.”,
