[Para1]India’s economic landscape, in terms of everyday transactions, has been transformed, so to say, in one fell swoop. The life of every Indian, from a corporate CEO to a cobbler, has changed like never before ever since Prime Minister of India has announced the trailblazing decision to withdraw old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 currency notes from circulation. Apart from turning out to be the biggest economic reforms in India, this revolutionary measure is making it incumbent upon everyone to embrace and promote digital platforms for money transactions. Necessity is the mother of invention, to use a clichéd adage. Herein lies the importance of the crucial and game-changing role the youth and other digitally literate people can play in educating the unlettered and semi-literate men and women in the useof mobiles and digital platforms for money transactions.
[Para2]The November 8 announcement was basically aimed at eliminating the twin menaces of black money and corruption, apart from dealing a death blow to Pakistan’s terror funding machine and the ISI sponsored counterfeit currency industry. It has also given a god-sent opportunity for providing a huge thrust to the digital economy and reap a bouquet of benefits that would accrue from such all-encompassing transformation the country is going to witness in the days and months to come. The positive cascading effect would give a major fillip to our forma economy and help improve the country’s GDP in the long run. There comes a time in the Indian history of a nation when shake-up has to be effected by taking a momentous decision to bring about a tectonic shift in the attitudes of people, especially those who have been exploiting and milking the loopholes in the system for begetting illegal and tainted wealth.
[Para3]The decision was not taken sudden. The Prime Minister took all the necessary precautions and alerted the nation about the likely stringent measures the government would be taking to unearth the black money. Who should not fear the consequences of such a historic decision? The answer is simple. Only those in possession of ill-gotten, unaccounted money in our country in those with sinister motives and evil designs across the border.
