Demonetisation not one-off solution, but changed black money agenda: Arun Jaitley”

On the criticism that note ban has impacted growth, Jaitley said: "If you don't have the capacity or courage or broad shoulders to undertake those structural reforms, then of course, that status quo would have continued. During the UPA (tenure), there was policy paralysis, while structural reforms have been initiated during NDA", Jaitley added.

The Finance Minister said that overall, demonetisation has created a "cleaner, transparent and honest financial system".

Besides the move to brand the Opposition as a supporter of black money and corruption, the ruling party plans to showcase a range of achievements - from curbing terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and naxalism elsewhere to targeting human trafficking and flesh trade, besides curbing black money and converting India's economy from informal to formal. "The reduction in currency in circulation from the base scenario reflects that this intended objective has been met".

During September, Rs 1.24 lakh crore worth of transactions were done through the digital mode. The tax administration and other enforcement agencies, he said, were using big data analytics to crack down on suspicious transactions. The number of transactions was 87.7 crore.

It also helped to identify the shell companies easily, he added.
