The note ban done a year ago was a watershed moment in the country’s economic history that has provided the next generation with a fair and honest system to live in, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Tuesday.
On the eve of the first anniversary of the decision to invalidate 86 per cent of the currency in circulation, Mr. Jaitley said the move had met its objective of reducing cash in the economy, ending anonymity of cash, bringing in more individuals in the tax net and dealing a body blow to black money.
In a 1,843 word blog, A Year After Demonetisation, he said that November 8, 2016 “signifies the resolve of this government to cure the country from the ‘dreaded disease of black money’. November 8, 2016 would be remembered as a watershed moment in the history of Indian economy. In an overall analysis, it would not be wrong to say that country has moved on to a much cleaner, transparent and honest financial system”
Jaitley Further Stated that the Modi government is looking to do structural reforms, whereas UPA government was suffering from policy paralysis for 10 years. An ant- black money drive is an ethical drive, what is morally and ethically correct is politically correct. The loot actually happened in 2G and CWG. Congress and BJP have very different ethics, Congress primary objective is serve the Family, whereas for them it is to serve the nation.
