India’s Demonetization - Changing payment culture and widened tax net provides the government with room for maneuver

In an effort to crack down on the shadow economy and reduce the usage of counterfeit cash, the Indian government in November 2016 ordered the demonetization of all 500INR and 1,000INR notes. The shock announcement caused a serious disruption to the Indian economy with many analysts claiming its long term benefits do not justify the short term losses incurred.

Key Highlights
- On November 8 2016, the Indian government declared in a shock announcement that all 500 and 1,000 rupee notes were henceforth invalid. These two bank notes together accounted for 86% of the circulating currency in India and 50 days were given to the Indian populace to return them to banks
- Claims that counterfeit notes were overrunning the country were hence shown to be untrue in August as the RBI declared that 99% of the revoked bank notes had made their way back to Indian banks. Demonetization has nevertheless had an immense impact on the everyday lives of Indian citizens as well as on the wider Indian economy.
- A changing in the payment culture from cash to digital is hence one consequence of demonetization that India may feel in the coming years. Another one is the widening of the tax net which will provide the government relief and increase its revenues.

- States the reason why demonetization was ordered.
