Citing the rise in the flow of black money in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, had initiated the demonetisation policy, following which there had been a ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. There had been a chaotic situation within the country since the implementation of the note-ban policy, with people trying to replace their scrapped currency notes with usable cash from banks and ATMs. And even after two weeks of implementation, several people are still seen standing in ‘never-ending’ queues. waiting for hours, outside banks and ATMs, to cash out usable currency notes for their basic needs.
