PM Modi thanks Indians on first anniversary of note ban
Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked the nation on social media for supporting demonetisation on its first anniversary.
He called demonetisation as a historic and a huge success and saluted people of India for supporting the government's decisions.
On 8 November last year, PM Modi banned Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes overnight to remove corruption and black money from the country.
People were given 50 days, from 10 November to 30 December to deposit their notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 in any bank or post office last year.
