inr 500 and 1000 banned

As Narendra Modi promised about getting back black money during 2014 election, he started working on this project secretly. Without any information in ministers he suddenly announced that INR 500 and INR 1000 has been banned from Wednesday midnight.

Why INR 500 and INR 1000 notes banned in India

This is really tough decision for country but helpful in recovering black money, note duplicity, decreasing terror attack in the country and much more, so let me focus on some important areas where this step will help a lot.

“Our one or two weeks of inconvenience will helps in betterment of our future”

#1- Helpful in recovering black money:

The main objective of this decision was to getting black money back to the country. You might thinking about, how INR 500 and INR 1000 notes banning will help in recovering black money. This is the general question comes in every normal minds but let me clear the whole things easily.

First of all I would like to tell what black money exactly is? Wait, if you are thinking that I am writing some tough economics definition then you are wrong. Because I am an engineer and it’s really a tough for us to memorise any exact economics definition without understanding.

In easy and simple language, black money are that amount on which no control of government or the amount on which no income tax are paid or in more simple language the money which is earned from illegal source like scams and smuggling.

If you have notes of INR 500 and INR 1000 then you can exchange it to bank or post office before 30th December 2016 but if you still want to submit these older banned notes after 31st December then you can submit it to Reserve bank offices before 31st march.

It will be really bad news for black money holders because either they have to submit it to bank and pay income tax with all declaration else burn it J . So this step will help in recovering black money back.

#2- Removing Note Duplicity:

Duplicate notes was on peak from few years back but after this government has been released new notes of INR 500 and INR 1000 so it will help in reducing trends of duplicate not for at least few years. This will also help in increasing value of rupees in international market.

#3- Reducing terror attack:

Narendra Modi has taken this great step against terrorism because they will no longer funded by black money. Now all those amount which were funded will have a bank record which help in reducing terror attack.

So these are three major areas where this step will helps but still there are many benefits of this tough decision. No doubt, public might face some issue for few days but we should support our country and Prime Minister for such great decision.
