On November 8 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government decided to demonetise high-value currency notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500. The PM, in a speech, had said that the move was to curb corruption, the flow of fake currency in the economy and terrorist activities in the country. The move, however, led to long queues in front of banks and cash-strapped ATMs. Just like how people take to the social media to take a stand and join discussions, the past one year also saw many people taking to the Internet, especially Twitter, to speak on the government’s demonetisation policy. Yes, jokes were made too and really funny ones at that. So, on the first anniversary of demonetisation, here is looking back at the funniest tweets on note-ban that had got people cracking up, while more keep coming in.

"Bhaisaab, deposit karna hai ki withdraw?"
"Line mein kyun khade ho?"
"Main desh ke liye kuch karna chahta hoon."
