Great initiation by Government: PM Modi Announces Ban on Rs 500 & Rs 1000 note
On 8th November 2016, our honorable PM Mr.Narendra Modi announced that currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denomination will not be legal anymore. This law comes to an effect by 8th Nov midnight with the motive of pulling out black money. The whole nation was surprised when Prime Minister addressed the citizens last evening and announced the new initiative aimed at controlling the negative effect of fake currency, black money, corruption and terrorism on the nation’s economy.
Note: For the convenience of the citizens, he also declared that Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes can be deposited post offices and banks without any charge till December 30.
In order to implement this law successfully, banks would be closed for public business on November 9, So that they will get time to tackle the rush of people who might come to deposit or exchange their notes. Moreover, cashless fund transfer either via cheque, draft or electronic transfer will remain unaffected.
In his speech addressing the whole nation last evening, he added: “Your money is yours; you will not lose your money”. He appealed the citizens to do little sacrifice for the benefit of the nation. He also stated that the existing notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 will be accepted in rail counters, air ticket counters, Hospitals, government buses, fuel stations, chemist shops.
Time will tell whether this step taken by PM Modi helps the government to demolish black money circulation across the country.
