Share Your Opinion About Demonetisation on Namo App, sought by PM Modi

Amid facing large criticism & attack by the opposition parties on the recently launched demonetisation initiative, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked the citizen of India to directly convey their views to him on the move via the Narendra Modi app which is available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.

PM Modi asked the public to participate in a survey regarding the initiative to demonetize old Rs.500 and Rs.1000 currency notes. He tweeted on Tuesday, I want your first-hand view on the decision taken regarding currency notes. Take part in the survey on the NM App.

Clicking on the Share Your Opinion section, 
users are guided to a survey where they are asked questions such as

1. "Do you have any suggestions/ideas or insights you would like to share with PM Narendra Modi?"

2. "Do you think black money exists in India?"

3. "Do you think the evil of corruption and black money need to be fought and eliminated?"

4. "What do you think of government's move of banning old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes?"

The Prime Minister's move to sought the views of the people comes at a time when the opposition has escalated its attack on the issue of demonetisation. The surprise demonetize move has disrupted the banking system in the country, with temporary restrictions on cash withdrawals and the exchange of old notes. 

Even after two weeks of the decision, queues are still snaking around banks and ATMs, raising questions whether the initiative was well thought through. The public inconvenience has come in as a handy tool for the opposition, which has disrupted parliament on the issue since it opened on November 16.

On Monday, top ministers held deliberations to firm up a strategy to fast-track adoption of cashless transactions in the wake of the government withdrawing the old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 currency notes.

IT and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Power Minister Piyush Goyal met to discuss a strategy to accelerate adoption of cashless transactions in the system to tide over the current crisis.
