After the Government scrapped 500 and 1,000 rupee notes, there have been long queues at banks and ATM’s. Who suffers….Small businesses who take payments from customers, mainly in cash. You can’t pay your local fisherman through your mobile wallet. If you are used to paying for your groceries and household items in cash, you could face some difficulty. Some people grumble…First work, then stand at queues at banks and ATM’s….
Today….Thankfully, queues at banks have shortened, but the queues outside ATM’s are still quite long.
500 and 1000 rupee notes, make up 86% of currency by value in the country. The 500 and 1000 rupee notes are worth more than 14 lakh crores. If 86% of currency by value is removed, there is bound to be some short term pain. ATM’s have to be recalibrated to issue the new 500 and 2000 rupee notes. Yes…this operation was highly secret and no matter how well planned, there were bound to be some shortcomings…The Government says….short term pain for long term gain….Worried about short term pain?….Think about these benefits….

RBI had printed about 15 lakh crore worth of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes. (The Government knows the exact amount). About INR 10 lakh crores worth of 500 and 1000 rupee notes, will come back to the economy, through deposits by citizens at banks and other means. The remaining 5 lakh crores is unaccounted money, held by corrupt politicians and tax evaders. This money cannot be brought to banks and will be destroyed. This 5 lakh crores is the profit of the RBI. (Rupee notes are the liability of the RBI). RBI will print new 500 and 2000 rupee notes, worth this amount and transfer it to the government.
