What is being an unpredictable move by Modi, he announced during his special address to the nation that the currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 will be illegal starting mid night of 8th of November 2016. "Currency notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 will be just paper with no value, " announced by PM Modi.
This move from the Indian Prime Minster is his strike against the ever increasing black money in our country. • While this announcement was met with shock and confusion by many, there are others who termed this as the Surgical Strike on Black Money. • Let us have a look at the reasons for the ban and how this can affect our economy going forward.

These notes can now be exchanged for the same value of money at the RBI offices or at various bank and post offices.People can deposit their old currency till the 30th of December 2016 in their respective bank accounts. • Most of the ATMs across the nation are closed on the 9th and 10th of November and the withdrawal limit from the 11th of November is Rs. 2000 and the same would be increased to Rs. 4000 per day.
