In the night Donald Trump was elected the next US president, one of his fellow nationalist populist politicians chose to implement at the stroke of midnight "demonetization" intervention which affected 85% of the money in circulation in India. It was an unprecedented move, whether in India or almost anywhere else, and it is by far Modi's boldest policy intervention to date. In a surprise TV address Narendra Modi, the Indian prime minister, announced that all 500- and 1,000-rupee notes would be withdrawn immediately from circulation. At a stroke Mr Modi rendered 85% of currency worthless outside a bank branch. Old notes would have to be exchanged for limited supplies of new currency. It was justified as a move designed to fight corruption and target people who have been dodging taxes by holding stockpiles of cash, known in India as "black money". This Book gives a complete analysis for Indian Demonitisation Scheme. Many initially saw the withdrawal of banknotes as a price worth paying to eliminate graft. The short-term impact of "demonetisation" has been dramatic: the $2 trillion Indian economy will shrink.While Mr Modi campaigned to end corruption, it would have been better if the government had updated its antiquated tax system to realise such a task. This book analyze and give the road ahead for Indian economy post demonitisation. Book further reviews large surplus liquidity post demonetisation led to a significant improvement in monetary policy transmission as reflected in a significant decline in deposit and lending interest rates.
