Demonetising of 500 and 1000 rupee notes in India

Statement by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

“I request everyone not to panic. The demonetising of high value currency is good for the country. It will curb corruption, black money and terrorism.

“There is no need to worry. No one will lose their hard-earned money since the government has made provisions for exchanging the 500 and 1000 notes easily with other legal notes.

“This move from the government will only impact those who have hoarded money illegally. The government is taking all efforts to see that the common man is not inconvenienced. In fact, this decision has brought a sigh of relief for all of us who have been fighting corruption all these years.

“I congratulate the PM for taking this bold move and ushering in Artha Kranti.”
