    it is really a bold step by Mr.Modi PM of India, to tackle the issue of black money. now govt. to have a close moneter the currency movement, and ensure that their should not be any black money in future and our currency is not printed in Pakistan or Bangladesh

  2. Bipan Kumar says:

    Yes, I like the step taken by our Hon`ble PM.

  3. Khaja Anwar Mohiuddin says:

    1. Yes black money exists in India-traders avoid paying taxes.
    2. Yes evil of corruption and black money to be fought – a) all employees and officers of Government, Private Sector, Politicians, Elected representatives etc to submit their statement of assets and liabilities every year as on 31st March failing which their salaries/remunerations withheld.
    3. The Govt. action of demonetization is good but implemented in haste. The general public to be allowed time to change their old currency notes by depositing in their accounts for at-least six months to avoid rush at the Banks .etc. If large amounts of cash is deposited by bank customers, cash to be received by banks and the notice to be sent to furnish ITR returns for last two years and matter reported to IT Department.
    4. PMs efforts is good but needs to be understood by the opposition/public.
    5. There will not be much impact. Govt, to introduce new 1000 notes also. Now the Govt, to release new 500 rupee notes to ease the inconvenience to general public. 00 rupee new notes to be given for transactions through bank accounts only.
    6. The demonetization of old 500/1000 rupee notes will have effect in the long run and all transaction above 20000 to be made online.
    7. . Demonetization will not bring any effect on real estate, higher education, healthcare in the common man’s reach.
    8. the inconvenience faced ( by common man) in our fight to curb corruption, black money, terrorism and counterfeiting of currency- YES
    9. Do you believe some anti-corruption activists are now actually fighting in support of black money, corruption & terrorism? YES. The Govt. Officials particularly from Revenue/Police/Excise/Income Tax to identify small and big traders who hide their income/falsify their accounts with the convenience of chartered accountants, on war footing and raid their premises to bring out the hidden black money. The Premises and offices of the Chartered Accountants to be raided first yo bring out black money held with them.
    10. Similar action as taken for demonetization be taken to recover bank debts from the large borrowers, who are evading payment of debts but live in lavish style at the cost of poor tax payer. If this is successful, the evil of black money, corruption, bank dues and over dues will be eradicated but this should have the same strong will as of demonitisation.

    DEAR PM,
    DEMONITISATION IS NOT THE SOLUTION BECAUSE WHAT IS THE GUARANTEE THAT 2000 NOTES WILL NOT BE MADE DUPLICATE. OBJECT IS GOOD BUT MODUS OPERANDI IS VERY POOR .I THINK P.M HAS NOT TAKEN ADVISE OF SOME ECONOMIST DUE TO WHICH THE POOR ARE SUFFERING IN QUEUE. NO NETA ,ABHINETA OR INDUSTRIALIST IS STANDING IN Q. INDIA LIVES IN VILLAGES WHERE ONLY 5% PEOPLE ARE USING DEBIT CARD AND ATM ARE 10 KM FAR .BEFORE IMPLEMENTING ALL THESE FACTORS TO BE KEPT IN MIND. WHAT ABOUT BLACK MONEY LYING IN FOREIGN COUNTRY.WHY YOU HAVE ALLOWED VIJAY MALYA TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY…. SO MANY QUESTIONS ARE THERE BUT THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF BEAUROCRACY OR HITLARVAD.

  7. Ashok Kumar Baranwal says:

    A very honest decision of Sri Narendra Modi for demonetisation of Rs500/- & Rs1000/- notes but very poor management by Sri Arun Jetley & RBI Governor. They should first release RS 500/- new notes in stead of Rs2000/- new notes. Till date Rs500 new notes are not available in 90% banks in Jharkhand. What one do with new 2000/- notes when smaller notes are not available.
