Akriti Bhatia, the co-Founder of Jan Ki Baat, spoke to a concerned citizen about the PMs recent decision to demonetize the currency of higher value. The man said that demonetization has proved fatal for those whove been hoarding money unlawfully; possessors of black money have lost their sleep. The poor, too, were suffering in their own way- hurrying to get their savings exchanged and depositing their old currency was difficult.
The PM of India, Narendra Modi, announced on the 8th of November, his governments decision to demonetize the higher-denomination currency. The old 500 and 1000 notes were banned throughout India from morning of 9th November, with the citizens being allowed to either deposit their old notes in banks or get them exchanged, until the new 500 and 2000 notes come out. Such a move intended to renew the economic market place and rid the country of the black money it had accumulated till date.
#JanJanKiBaat urges the public to speak their mind about the governments policy of demonetization, enabling them to voice their concerns.
