By the Way

By the way : Vox pop

vox-popMost civil servants are very busy these days. They don’t have any holiday on Saturdays and Sundays. Under Modi, a government order can come at any time. Now, demonetisation has made life even trickier. Modi sent 61 top-ranking civil servants to 27 states to get first-hand accounts on the Centre’s demonetisation policy and prepare reports on it, suggesting corrective measures in the last week of November. In the course of their field trip, most of the civil servants were flooded with complaints. What they have submitted to Modi is not known. Insiders inform that the situation in the field is very severe. As per sources, the North East was the most affected part of India. In general, the rural areas were the worst hit. As one officer informed, new currency notes reached after 10 days of demonetisation in many rural areas. One senior civil servant informed that rural India has shifted back to the barter system. Another important aspect which emerged was that B town has done brisk business in currency exchange while another disclosed that some bank managers scored big.
