By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : : If Prime minister does attack black money holder alone it can be called as surgical strike .But he is suspecting every citizen of India as black money holder and ask them to prove that they do not have black money is not surgical strike it is strike on the every faithful citizen and it is murder faith of people .It unethical war on its own citizens . If someone uses knife to kill someone you can punish the culprit but Government have no right to ban the knife itself. If someone has black money you punish such individuals and not all good citizens. And this has come as a surprise to everybody. The citizens, the nation and even within most of the government!”.Ultimately this fails to combat corruption and black money as it just exchange and re-print the same money. The most important fact, however, is that the share of large-value notes has only been increasing over the years. While some of this is no doubt due to the natural growth expansion of our economy, On the other hand, what needs to be noted is that there's no good estimate for how much of India's black money is in forms other than currency/physical notes such as gold, jewellery, land or any other form of wealth. Therefore, while banning Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes will tackle the black money that is in the form of hard cold cash, it won't affect other forms of black money. On similar lines, this move will, obviously, have little effect on black money stashed away in foreign tax havens. Government wants to eliminate black money by scrapping the currency notes and but by re-printing them it is not gaining anything .As reportedly people have smart accountants in India who have expertise to guide citizens to get the black money in white and white inblack legally .Reportedly one accountant made 1000 fake company and they invested in real company of several thousand crore and made that single company have real white money and it is reportedly headed by a big politician and then question of getting black money out remains a big question. This, however, brings us to the larger question: Why do we need a Rs 2,000 note and a new Rs 500 note if the move is to abolish combat corruption and black money as these large-value notes were being used to finance corruption and fund terrorism and move towards a cashless society?
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 rupee banknotes would be withdrawn from circulation at midnight to crack down on rampant corruption and counterfeit currency. From November 10 till December 30 you can deposit the old notes at your nearest bank or post office accounts without any limit. RBI will issue new currency notes of Rs 500 and 2000 from November 10 onwards. These notes will have new design. Few experts state that this scheme of scrapping and re-printing the notes will only add expenditure to government but this will not eliminate black money.As previous government also did the same things .But no tangiblr results.UPA Government did exchange pre-2005 currency notes, including those of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations, at banks and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has asked the public to deposit the old design notes in their bank accounts or exchange them at a bank branch convenient to them during UPA Government . It is easy to identify pre-2005 notes. The currency notes issued before 2005 do not have the year of printing on the reverse side. In notes issued post 2005, the year of printing is visible at the bottom on the reverse.The rationale behind the move to withdraw banknotes printed prior to 2005 is to remove them from the market because they have fewer security features compared with banknotes printed after 2005, RBI said.It is standard international practice to withdraw old series notes.Post-2005 notes have added security features and help in curbing the menace of fake currency.Over 164 crore pre-2005 currency notes of various denominations, including of Rs 1,000 were shredded in regional offices of Reserve Bank in 13-month period ending January.The face value of the shredded currency notes was around Rs 21,750 crore. As per the details given in Parliament in March, 86.87 crore pieces of Rs 100, 56.19 crore pieces of Rs 500 and 21.75 crore pieces of Rs 1,000 were shredded.Reportedly Since black money can't be used for buying financial assets, the same is used for purchasing mostly real estate and gold. Since more than 80% of money in circulation are through Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, the best solution to this problem is the withdrawal of these notes from circulation. How will it benefit? First, withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 rupee notes will result in immediate unearthing of black money. This is because people who are hoarding black cash currency will be forced to come to banking system for converting. Second, withdrawal of high denomination notes will help to reduce black money generation in future. This is because it will become difficult to deal in cash, especially for large deals that runs into crores. Smuggling of Indian currency outside also become really difficult. This is very important for our national security also because terror outfits usually use smuggling and black money route for financing. Major economies have already started taking steps in this direction
