Demonetisation, note ban anniversary: Today is the first anniversary of demonetisation i.e. note ban. In a historic decision, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on November 8 last year announced the demonetisation of old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes in a bid to combat corruption, black money, terrorism and fake currency. Now, on the first anniversary of note ban, Narendra Modi government on Wednesday released a 7.12-min video film citing the benefits of demonetisation and how India won the war against black money, corruption, terrorism, naxalism, shell companies, tax frauds to name a few. The video shows how PM Narendra Modi took the historic decision that no one took in the history of Independent India. The video shows that note ban was ‘FOR POOR and WITH THE SUPPORT OF HONEST PEOPLE’. The video lists out a number of benefits which a common man availed just because of demonetisation.
Watch: Here is the video:-
