DEMONETIZATION: Impact of fake currency
The discontinuation of the particular
currency which is circulating in the economy and replacing it with new currency
is what demonetization means.
There were many countries where demonetization
happened. The effect of demonetization on some of the countries are i.e. in the
year 1984, the government of Nigeria introduced new currency and banned the old
notes. Therefore due to the population who were under debt and inflation in the
economy hit in the country results in no change and the economy collapsed.
In North Korea, in 2010, the
demonetization happed. This adversely affected the people as they were
suffering with no food as well as no shelter.
As in Australia, it was the first
country who released plastic notes to stop spreading fake currency in the
There were many objectives of
Demonetization to put out black money, the money which terrorists and naxalites
have, fake currency from economy and to make circulation of black money in
economy. Through the event of demonetization, this is the first step taken by
the Indian government which initiated to bring transparency in an economy. From
the day of demonetization enacted, every person of the citizen were seems to be
in a queue outside the bank in order to deposit or withdrawal of money.
DEMONETIZATION: Economic reform
On 8th November 2016 is the
date remembered to every citizen of India. Specially, the black money holder,
terrorists, and corrupted people of India. On 8th November at 8:00pm
the demonetization took place. This was a huge surprise to every citizen of
India by our Honourable Prime Minister of India Sri Narendra Damodar Das Modi.
As this circumstance took place, this became the historic event of India.
Demonetization happened in order to bring changes in the Indian economy by
eradicating huge stock of black money which was flowing in the economy and to
make that money circulate in economy in a productive and right way.
As the government of India announced the
ban on Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes, the citizen of India were under pressure to
exchange or deposit the currency which got ban.
In the Indian history, this is the first
time demonetization happened. There were the purpose behind the ban of Rs.500
and Rs 1000 currency and introduction of new notes. However, there were several
other countries have embraced it in the past. Some met the purposes, whereas
some failed miserably. There are eight countries that tried demonetization
before India, i.e., Nigeria, Ghana, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, North Korea, Soviet
Union, Australia, and Myanmar.
As the demonetization announced, the
public came in force to exchange and deposit the currency. Every people seems
to be in the queue outside the Banks and ATMs. The notes withdrawn 86% from the

fake currency was exploiting the backward and economical week people of the
country before the implication of Demonetization. As in some of the period of
time, the country was suffering inflation as well as deflation due to the
excess flow of money in the economy and due to this the lower and the middle
class people were losing the purchasing capacity in the market.

analyse and study about the fake currency, expected costs and approach to
comparing benefits and costs. Moreover, this paper helps me to analyse the

As the Prime Minister of Indian country
Narendra Modi’s decision on demonetization of high movement currency to
restraint fake currency that was circulating in the Indian economy worthy, its
implementation is not planned and expeditious, and has led to a cash crisis all
over the country, the common man getting affected negatively. Although it is
still not known about the targeted results of demonetization were achieved, the
non planned act frequently caused a huge inconvenience and several issues for
common and ordinary people by directly and indirectly to their daily life and
their livelihoods. And for this, there are many reasons for this. Most of the
common man in Indian country is dependent on cash or currency transactions for
their daily and basic needs and for economic activities. The non cash
transactions like internet banking and credit or debit card transactions are
limited as because such facilities and availabilities are mostly in the urban
or semi-urban areas and only to middle class and rich people. There were most
of the ATMs were not working due the excess shortage of cash. It was clear
that, the Prime Minister and the RBI in their so called Surgical Strike has
failed to take precautions against its negative effects on the common people.As
due to this the life of the citizen got disrupted, as the people were having
insufficient or no money to spend according to their requirements and on theirs
The government’s first step was to
create awareness among people to create their bank accounts under Jan Dhan Yojna.
They were asked to deposit their money into their accounts and also advise them
to do their payments by online or through bank payments in future. Secondly,
the government declared a deadline of 30, 2016 for the same purpose. This
method helps the government to eliminate a huge undeclared amount. However,
there were many people who still holds black money. So the government announced
the demonetization of 500 and 1000 currency notes in order to tackle that

country to become corruption-free. The people who are indulged in taking bribe
will refrain from corrupt practices as it will be hard for them to keep their
unaccounted cash. This step will also help the government to track the black
money. Those individuals who have unaccounted cash are now required to show
income and submit PAN for any valid financial transactions. The government can
get income tax return for the income on which tax has not been paid. This move
will stop the circulation of fake currency. Most of the fake currency put in
circulation is of the high value notes will eliminate the circulation of fake

people to pay income tax returns. Most of the people who have been hiding their
income are now forced to come forward to declare their income and pay tax on
the same. Even though deposits up to Rs 2.5 lakh will not come under Income Tax
scrutiny, individuals are required to submit PAN for any deposit of above Rs
50,000 in cash. This will help the income tax department to track individuals
with high denominations currency.

given a 50-day window to deposit them in banks.
