34. As per the RBI data, it’s safe to say that demonetisation has been a failure of epic proportions.

current deficit (CAD) hit a 4-year high in the same quarter at 2.4% of GDP despite benign oil prices that have cushioned govt finances.

Less focus on MGNREGS, especially during the droughts 14-15 ,15-16,aggravated the rural demand situation and dampened rural growth.

With #DeMonetisationDisaster , the cash-dependent unorganized sector that makes up 40% of India’s GDP came to a standstill.

with anecdotal evidence showing farmers being forced to dump their produce for want of buyers ,small businesses laying off employees.

The implementation of GST barely 8 months after the note ban further unsettled the supply networks with dealers reducing stocks and companies drastically cutting production, leading to the three-year low GDP print of 5.7% in the June quarter.

In fact, investment announcements in the Sep-2017 quarter are lower than the investments proposed even during the June 2014 quarter.

Jun 2014 when investments had come to a halt for all practical purposes in the face of political uncertainty.

There was never really a revival of investments during the Modi govt .
