From Mann Ki Baat to Jan Ki Baat on demonetization:JanJanKiBaat07

Akriti Bhatia speaks to a concerned citizen of India about the two-week old policy of demonetization. Black money was a factor that had been degrading the Indian citizenry, both economically and socially. The PM’s idea to ban the higher-denomination notes bears testimony to his good intentions and thus, is a good enough reason to support him.

The PM of India, Narendra Modi, announced on the 8th of November, his government’s 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 takes into account the variety of reactions to demonetization, to understand the public mood.
