The recent upheaval that is going on in our nation is getting on everyone’s nerves , I guess with the amount of messages I keep getting.
I do think this idea of stopping the use of Rs.500 and 1000 note is very good as it will definitely stop the use of black money and the fake notes that have been flooded in our nation, Will it make any change I don’t know.
Media is reporting things , I am trying to make head or trail of it all but can’t understand one little thing , there are queues in front of banks where people are standing for hours and hours to get the notes changed, BUT In all the reports I have not seen a SINGLE celebrity or a big business man, are we saying they have NO notes to exchange.
Whatsapp is a good tool , I had a message come to me a couple of days before PM Modi announced the change, that message has a picture of the New Rs.2000 note .. how is that possible, where was that pic clicked or who clicked it, does that mean the notes were in circulation prior to the announcement.
What about NRI’s I have a few notes where do I go and get them exchanged, I been talked to my mom , she has visited our local bank three times in the last two days with the same notice on the door of the bank, NO CURRENCY.
I also have a question regarding the security that keeps getting mentioned on the new notes, they are so secure, connected to GPS or Satellite.. that is fair enough but HOW does that prevent the use of FAKE notes, If I have a Fake Rs. 2000 Note how do i know, or when I use it at a shop etc. How will they know, it is Fake.
In another news I read that Congress Mp’s or MLA’s in Punjab have resigned in protest over some issue, WELL we are going to have elections in 2017, 3 months away HOW does it matter if they resigned now.
The Reason why i say this is that in the pub the other day some obviously congress allies were going on and on about how their ministers have resigned , for the good of the state , how this was all selfless.. SELFLESS I say when has a politician done anything for selfless reasons.
Its like this Currency notes all the big wigs have got their accounts sorted, I doubt if ANY of the big wigs will be questioned by Income tax people or brought to justice but MAYBE just maybe some common people might who may have gotten their money through wrong means but the amount they have does not even effect a .000000000000000001% of the actual problem.
What do you think people is this really going to help, How is this going to bring the Black money sitting in Swiss banks back into India.
Would it not mean that instead of paying 500 or 1000 as bribe to get some things dones, especially in a Govt. Office (believe me the hassel one has to go through, I found 2 years ago a half hour job took , 3 WEEKS because I did not pay the correct person when i should have, which resulted in me spending more money in changing my flight tickets, taking more time off from my work WITHOUT PAY.. so it was more loss , easier to pay the 500 🙂 ).. We will have to pay Rs.2000. Now…
In my simple brain there are a few steps that can be taken to sort this issue, make all transactions electronic only especially if they are lets say higher than 20K or 50K.
Make sure every individual declares their Property, if any property is not declared assign it to the STATE.
