Life After Demonitisation

This was a carpet bombing and not a surgical strike. Short term effects are bad. But in the long run , squeezing the parallel and hidden economy could be good. Anti corruption methods like appointing Lokpal which they have kept in cold storage should also be done. The banking system was never perfect or functional in the first place. So overloading them had it risks. Only a strong prime minister who had the spine could do it since public backlash could come and would not be nice for the ballot boxes. Even riots or mutiny can happen when majority of notes circulating were withdrawn and one day people were asked to live without any currency.Let us hope for a brighter future and work towards building a new India.

Message from the Prime Minister is loud and clear. He is there to do his job. If you throw him out of power, he is ready to pack his satchel and go like APJ. But he will do his job whether you like it or not.But underestimating Indian Jugaad will be a big mistake. In the span of two days I have seen three persons who mentioned about ways of converting black money to white.In the war between the anticorruption drive and the whitening activities of the criminals, who will win?

There is no compulsion for Jaitley ji to win elections. As usual, He can just lose election and come back as MP through Rajya Sabha route and sit in opposition bench.Look where these financial experts are taking Modiji to? Recalling 11 lakh crore rupees and giving 4 lakh crore rupees (till Dec 8,2016) and asking all people to become digital all of a sudden does not seem bright.

Creative Meme on Rupee Demonitisation


December 15,2016: Avoided three ATMs with long queues and visited three ATMs with short queues today. All had money but that was 2000 rupee notes which I do not solicit.So I had to come back dejected.The 100 rupee notes were all finished from those ATMs.The petrol filling station I visited displayed a POS terminal at prominent place and wrote that all credit and debit cards are accepted. But the fuel outlet staff failed to convey me whether there would be any additional fee slapped on the fuel bill. I was eager to bag the 0.75 % fuel incentive or cash back discounts offered by pumps as a part of promotion of digital money.So I did not try it out.I heard mixed reactions from the public about the currency crisis. I am fearing whether the indians who adore a chalta hai attitude is cultivating a habit of learning to live at peace with a currency deficient economy. Equally disturbing is the lack of an opposition with unity or integrity. Why the Congress is not understanding the reality? Replace the idiot with a better person to take on NaMo.

Update on 15 June 2017: The much anticipated & daredevil act of demonitisation of old currency which i vehemently supported has failed.Poor implementation failed the purpose.Farmers suiciding & protesting and economic data provided by the government leads to that conclusion.Rulers have to come out from their glass houses and learn the situation of the public.I wish Modi take up the situation as a challenge strongly as he has done in the past.

RBI has come up with the figures of demonitisation. Some people wanted it to fail.And it has happened.Large scale whitening of black money as well as genuine fake notes has indeed happened.Idea was great.But the execution was disastrous.A ruler must definitely take risks rather than sit tightly to the throne.Only good thing that happened was that the parallel economy has been defeated.They were forced to join the formal economy.And the fear about future recalls would stop them from hoarding cash.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
