New Delhi, November 8
On the fourth anniversary of demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said it had helped reduce black money, increase tax compliance and formalisation, and given a boost to transparency.
On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Modi announced the decision to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes.
Taking to Twitter, Prime Minister Modi listed the beneficial outcomes of demonetisation. “Demonetisation has helped reduce black money, increase tax compliance and formalisation and given a boost to transparency,” he tweeted.
“These outcomes have been greatly beneficial towards national progress,” Modi tweeted using hashtag ‘DeMolishingCorruption’.
