demonetisation was not planned

Who Said demonetisation was not planned ? An alternative viewpoint

Who said demonetisation was not planned?..all the people losing jobs, people dying in queues, elderly and sick waiting in lines for days without money, existential crisis for daily wagerers ,was all planned….
  • They knew how much money could be printed
  • They knew the ATM density
  • They knew how many people do not have access to “digital payments”
  • They knew how many daily wagerers are there
  • They knew that ATMs will need reconfiguration
  • They could easily calculate how long the ATMS queues would be and how many days an average person will have to wait in ATM line
  • They knew even the sick and elderly would need to stand in these lines
  • They knew it would put a lot of people with upcoming marriages at home in extreme stress
  • They knew some people would break
  • They knew some people would not be able to access medical facilities despite having money
  • They knew people would die
  • They knew some industries would collapse
  • They knew farmers would not be able to buy seeds
  • They knew the poorest would suffer the most
Do you think they did not know all this? If you insist that demonetisation was not planned or all these things were pure surprises , then you insist that the government is run by  idiots who do not even do basic homework…I won’t say that.
So stop saying demonetisation was not planned , give the government credit for all this.Give credit where it’s due.
It was all planned, just that we cannot fathom that the government could be this insensitive and this brutal on it’s own people.
Welcome to the new reality

    They didn’t know to what extent will banks fail regarding distribution of money and digitalization of services.
    They didn’t know to what extent will disagreeing state govt. mismanage cash
    They couldn’t inform or prepare to a great extent, it would failed the purpose
    They couldn’t help people losing jobs when black money holders have no more cash
    They couldn’t help the level to which property prices will fall due to the illegal handovers of undeclared wealth
    They couldn’t confirm how many Maoists or Kashmiri terrorists will be affected that they start surrendering and attacking banks
    They haven’t yet estimated the amount of people they need to raid to take out cash into the system
    They couldn’t make people live in a cloud where the govt. invests 10 rs and people 1 rs effectiveness
    They did it purposefully and solely knowing that a surprise attack could be the only way to be effective, else all this trouble was for waste.

      They did not know banks would fail? Is that not the basic job ?..so you are saying they had no idea how banks work or digital economy works..and banks would fail in what? Printing money? Banks are giving all the money they are getting…you mean to say, they forgot that they need to print the money too? Now its banks fault ?
      –You also mean to say they did not know that some industries would collapse leading to widespread unemployment and suffering of daily wagerers..
      You mean farmers had black money–since they failed?..they forgot that farmers need money to buy seeds?
      You mean to say this is state govts fault now?…

      And secrecy and stuff
      PS: It was in papers before the govt announced..that is a fact

      failed the purpose? Well what purpose finally? they still have not decided it …black money, digital economy…appreciation for new notes, terrorism ?

      You are trying to say, they did not know this will happen? this implies they are incompetent and have no idea how the country works . (Basic math on how much time it will take to fill ATMS was also missing)..you are saying they woke up one day and decided to go for it and said “dekh lenge jo hoga…”..thats quite a kiddish pictue of government you paint

      While I am saying they are very competent and knew exactly all this would happen, they planned for it. I am giving this govt more credit than you
