Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on November 8 announced the decision to demonetiose currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000, leaving all Indians surprised. While many saw it as Modi’s masterstroke against black money and corruption, other thought it was a big blunder by the government. The move was aimed at curbing black money, check circulation of fake currency and terror funding. Following the announcements, long queues have been seen outside banks for exchanging and depositing the old currency.
