One Month Since #Demonetisation : Linkfest

11 12 2016

On December 8th, 2016, it is one month since the Demonetisation was announced. After 30 days, many columnists and commentators have written pieces to look at this rather disruptive event in Indian economic history. This topic refuses to leave the headlines, as India is struggling to get hold of cash to get on with their daily lives. The Government has gone on a overdrive to make India adopt digital payments and become a cash-less society.
