9 steps to tell PM Modi what you think about demonetisation
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is asking citizens for their views of the currently ongoing demonetisation drive.
On November 9, PM Modi said that currency in Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will be illegal tender after December 30, 2016. These two total to around Rs 14 lakh crore, or 86% of the total currency in circulation in India. Since then, banks and ATMs continue to see huge queues as people rush to withdraw, change and deposit money.
On November 21, 2016, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said that between November 10 to November 18, Rs 5.44 lakh crore was deposited in banks with over Rs 1 lakh crore withdrawals.
