Rs 1000 note

A Rs 1000 note.
It has been around a month that the Indian government banned the old Rs 1000 & Rs 500 denomination notes, in an effort to bring down the circulation of fake notes as well as black money. This notice came all of a sudden, putting much of the nation in panic. The government failed to put forward to the people it’s intensions and the procedure in a proper manner which has caused much tension and despair amongst most people. Though many effort have been taken to make this procedure as smooth as possible like the introduction of Rs 2000 and new Rs 500 notes, the various deaths surrounding this procedure, the still long bank queues, empty ATMs and the building frustration of the people of the country tell a different story. Did this plan and action taken by the current government work the way they intended it to have, only time will tell.
