Two Years after Demonetization- Where is Indian Economy Standing?

Is the effect of demonetization over? No. The result was the deficiency of money due to demonetization affected the economy in general with an enduring impact till date.

Two Years after Demonetization- Where is Indian Economy Standing?

Demonetisation resembles an awful dream scratched in our recollections. Weddings were delayed and medicinal treatment was reduced for absence of cash. Long lines framed outside banks. Independent ventures shut because of lack of working capital and their specialists came back to their towns. Indians who never created dark cash were the most exceedingly bad influence. However, the account that demonetization would decimate the abundance of the degenerate was broadly acknowledged.

This was a direct result of the misperception that 'dark means money.' If money were crushed out, the dark economy would vanish at one stroke – equity being distributed to the immoral. The Prime Minister said that for long-haul increase one needed to shoulder here and now torment. He compared it to 'ahuti' in a 'yagya.' On the off chance that the agony does not end in 50 days, Modi stated, general society could give him any discipline, and he would acknowledge it.

After two years, the agony endures yet the legislature just keeps on legitimizing its mistake. It has declined to admit to the long haul harm to the economy, particularly to underestimated Indians in the sloppy divisions. Instead, information from the composed segment is utilized to guarantee that the economy has recouped to a 7-8% rate of development. This is treated as proof that the torment was transitory.

Two years back Prime Minister Narendra Modi had declared the prohibition on that month. On the night of eighth November 2016, he stunned the nation and the world by saying that the notes of 500 and 1,000 rupees available for use would be invalid from 12 o'clock in the night. This declaration of the PM has made a great deal of disarray on each side. Be that as it may, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) acquired new note flow of Rs 500. However 1,000 rupees were entirely revoked, and new notes of Rs 2,000 were gotten. In these two years of note binding, there have been different dialogs and are occurring because of its prosperity and disappointment. 99.3% old note back.


In the yearly report of the money related the year 2016-17, the RBI said that 15.31 lakh crore of illicit announced Rs 15.44 lakh crore have come back to managing an accounting framework. That is, 99.3% of the pronounced unlawful revelations were stored in the banks, while just 0.7% of the notes worth Rs 10,720 crore were not known.

At the point when the boycott was reported on November 8, 2016, around then there were 1,716.5 million notes for 500 rupees, and 6,858 million notes of 1,000 rupees were available for use. The aggregate estimation of the two was Rs 15.44 lakh crore.

As per the RBI, 8.9 million notes of 1,000 rupees, i.e., 1.3 percent of the notes don't come back to the saving money framework.

1. After spending Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 after the note-taking, the RBI contributed Rs 7,965 crore on the printing of new notes. A year ago, not exactly 50% of the Rs 3,421 crore was spent on printing the notes. In the financial year 2017-18, Rs 4,912 crore was spent on the printing of notes.

2. Because of the expansion in distribution and different costs, the effect on the profit given to the legislature by the RBI. The national bank said that its profit diminished by 23.56 percent in the budgetary year 2016-17, while the consumption expanded dramatically increased by 107.84 percent.

3. The financial year 2017-18 lost 27,700 million old notes of 500 and 1,000 rupees. It was 1,200 crores a year ago.

The legislature did not review the sloppy parts to discover what was going on there. The fundamental presumption is that the stun to the economy did not require an adjustment in the old philosophy for figuring development. In that system, the composed division is pretty much the intermediary for the chaotic part. In any case, the stun to the economy changed the proportion between the sorted out and the disorderly areas. In this way, the portion utilized preceding November 7, 2016, was not any more substantial after November 8, 2016.

Information from private overviews demonstrated that the sloppy division was hit hard. Studies were led by Punjab Haryana Delhi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI), All India Manufacturers Organization (AIMO), State Bank of India (SBI) and numerous others including NGOs. The RBI review discharged in March 2017 demonstrated a sharp decrease in demand for buyer durables et cetera.

Farming confronted an emergency because of lack of notes. Create couldn't be sold, the sowing of products was deferred and the interest for the perishables like vegetables crumbled. Costs fell sharply, in this way affecting salaries of agriculturists. Keeping money additionally went into an emergency since ordinary managing an account tasks ceased for a considerable length of time. With industry, exchange, and farming confronting a crisis, the issue of NPAs just expanded.

As indicated by the Center for Monitoring of Indian Economy (CMIE), speculation fell strongly amid that quarter. As a result, yield, work, and thinking declined, sending the economy into a spiral from which it has not yet recouped. The effect of the merchandise and ventures assessed (GST) from June-July 2017 again affected the disorderly segments and developed the emergency. In this way, now the twin effect of demonetization and GST is being felt in the economy. If the strategy for estimating the quarterly development of the economy is adjusted to consider the decrease in the disorderly segment (about 45% of GDP), the rate of growth will end up being under 1% – what an emergency in an economy that was running admirably till October 2016.

Installment framework arranged by the National Payment Council of India (NPCI) in 2012.


Ten years prior, there were just 14 million charge cards, which have now achieved 1 billion. Fundamentally, NPCI has its own different installment mode known as UPI. In the long stretch of August, an exchange of 5 billion 42 million 10 lakh rupees was made utilizing this installment mode 31 million two million times. That is, its prevalence is developing at a quick pace.
