    Though demonitization created number of problems for people viz. X, Y Z But at the same time it aimed at bla bla... Moreover India has inspired other countries to act on black money For eg. Aus. I am quite hopeful that it will serve its purpose.

    when a nationa goes to war its people have to suffer hardships,as our PM said its a war against black money and funding of terrorism,so some hardhip was unavoidable.concerns can be raised regarding proper execution,but we also need to consider that surprise elemnt was necessary and had large scale preparations been done before hand for example installing new software in atms then there would have been chances of leakge defeating the purpose.
    we can give auxiilliary benefits such as case study of amul dairy farmers who benefitted from this move and had their accounts opened. B)

    Food Inflation, which hurts the poor the most, has been settled down. Though economists are skeptic about the price realisation of the farmer, but demonetisation has helped us in acknowleding that much needs to be done and can be done on the hoarding of food grains front. And if enough stand is taken on hoarding, lower prices of cereal crops would be a win win for all. especially farmers.
  • One follow up question can be.. what steps have been taken by govt. to ensure that crictical cash supply is not disrupted to the people in general and farmers to be specific?
  • And apart from demonetisation which other policy measures can help in formalising economy and thereby making it cashlesser!!
