The survival report, Instead,he believes that it would leave the economy in trouble and people harassed Here are the five major takeaways from the interview: Professor Arun Kumar Centre for Economic Studies Jawaharlal Nehru University Hoarded money is not necessarily black money The demonetisation move may demobilize only a small part of the stock of black wealth held in the form of cash but it won’t stop the flow The need is to stop black income generation which results in generation of black wealth Income needs to be distinguished from wealth and so black money should be distinguished from black income Black money is only a tiny part of the black wealth that has been accumulated Black income generation will continue due to the existence of a large large number of mechanisms by which it is generated such as businesses resorting to under and over invoicing; manufacture of spurious drugs; charging of capitation fee for admission in school and colleges; adulteration of food etc Black money is largely circulating in businesses It’s black wealth that is parked First we need to understand the difference between black money black income and black wealth It’s not the same Black money is possibly less than 1 percent of the black wealth The demonetisation move won’t put an end to generation of black wealth The actual people behind black wealth are not being targeted The misnomer is that black economy means cash That is where the understanding of the government is lacking They are thinking that if they demobilize the cash the black economy will collapse It won’t Demonetisation is no silver bullet against fake currency Demonetisation won’t end fake currency problem either According to the RBI fake currency amounts to only Rs 400 crore of the total currency in circulation of Rs 175 lakh crore—which is a minuscule amount Fresh printing and import of counterfeit currency will not stop with demonetisation Counterfeit currency is used to finance terrorist activities and those involved in it ensure that it is constantly generated The printing of fake currency has to be stopped If the old notes could be counterfeited so can the new ones too despite having advanced features So extinguishing fake currency one time is not going to help Move will leave the economy hobbling The Rs 1000 and Rs 500 denomination currency notes constituted 86 percent of the currency and it has been sucked out of the system It’s like taking out 86 percent of blood from a person’s body Imagine what will be the effect He will die Same is with the economy New currency is only slowly trickling in which is inadequate to restore the flow of incomes There’s a decline in footfalls in malls; small traders are unable to sell goods; circulation of income is slowing down; the farmers households small producers transport sector – all are hurt due to fall in demand The poor the daily wage earners in the unorganized sector are the worst sufferers If the situation continues for a longer period it’ll have a cascading effect on the economy The cash shortage will not be sorted out early because of inadequate printing capacity So demand will be affected for much longer than 50 days This can result in irreversible changes setting in like increase in NPA unemployment and decline in investment so that India may head into a recession and not just a decline of GDP by 2 percent The circulation of money is like blood flow in the body If there is a shortage of that then there is a problem In the coming months newer problems will crop us as a result of demonetisation Scale of operation is the problem; may not be the intent Prime Minister Narendra Modi has rightly said that black money menace is the source of poverty flight of capital and corruption But it needs to be clarified why such a drastic step like demonetisation is not the solution but will jeopardise the economy instead It’s a wrong move In 1978 when Rs 10000 and Rs 5000 notes were banned it didn’t make any noise The common man wasn’t affected because these high-value currency notes were not used by them It was with the super rich and it constituted a very small portion of the currency What was being circulated then were Rs 10 and Rs 100 denomination notes So it didn’t touch the day-to-day lives of people In contrast at present the common man including lower middle classes had been using Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes The Rs 1000 and Rs 500 denomination notes constituted 86 percent of the currency—worth Rs 145 lakh crore The government in a single stroke has scrapped such a large volume of currency which was in circulation without having an alternative arrangement in place It has created chaos and panic Due to lack of advance preparation almost every day there is a change in policy related to exchange of old notes The banks and the ATMs are still not equipped to dispense the volume of cash needed by the people Even today almost after 30 days there are long queues at bank branches and outside the ATMs The salaried class and pensioners are facing a tough time to withdraw their salaries and pensions Lingering cash pain With liquidity sucked out of the system even if temporarily money supply has become a problem Replacing 86 percent of the currency may take many months You have to replace quickly the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes worth Rs 145 lakh crore printed over the years If you are printing Rs 100 notes you need to print 10 times more notes than for a Rs 1000 note and that will take a lot more time Had the government prepared properly and managed to create enough supply of cash this pain would have been less But given the hoarding of currency and printing of small denomination currency notes and shortage of ink and paper it can take even a year for the supply of currency to become normal

Modi-led government at the centre would not repeat the blunders of the Congress-led government on the Sri Lankan Tamils and fishermen issues Modi himself said that with Tamils living all over the world including in Malayasia Sri Lanka and Fiji it should be a priority of the Indian government to take care of their well-being He promised to do so if a BJP-led government assumed power after the elections Playing the emotive issue of recurring attacks on fishermen Modi had charged that the former government in India lacked the courage to protect the fishermen of Tamil Nadu and Gujarat who were being "harassed" by Sri Lanka and Pakistan IANS The most distressing news for Muslims today emanating from the birthplace of Islam Saudi Arabia is the attack on the holiest Islamic city Madina towards the end of Ramzan After the extremist jihadists carried out several terror attacks around the world in recent days the IS appears to have timed itslatest ghastly suicide attack in Madina on 4 July 2016 towards the end of Ramzan According to the Saudi media sources the attack took place close to the Prophet’s Mosque in Madina Masjid al-Nabawi which is venerated as the holiest site in Islam along with the Ka’bah the Grand Mosque of Mecca Besides Madina terror attacks were also launched in the Saudi city of Qatif which has a large number of Shia Muslims as well as people of other faith In total four suicide bombs were blasted in three locations in Saudi Arabia One of them in the parking lot of the Prophet’s mosque Al-Masjid an-Nabawi which left a number of people dead while the second and third attacks targeted a Shia mosque in Qatif People stand by an explosion site in Medina Saudi Arabia AP Clearly the attack is in full consistence with the call of IS to its hardcore followers to mark the holy month of Ramzan as ‘a month of mayhem for the disbelievers’ They are actively engaged in the wanton terror attacks in their crazy bid to fulfill this nefarious jihadist resolution which they pledged in the beginning of the Islamic month The experts quoted in The Washington Post report have rightly pointed out that the IS has deliberately attempted to use the Islamic month of Ramzan to further it nefarious ends The latest brutal attack in Madina was a similar attempt by the extremist and puritanical Salafist jihadists who justify the killing of other Muslims — Sufis and Shias whom they consider beyond the pale of true Islam The city of Madina is mostly revered by Sufi Muslims because the Holy Prophet’s mosque is located in it They visit and venerate the shrine of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to seek his blessings and find spiritual solace Sufi practitioners believe that there is no virtue in the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca without paying a visit to the Prophet’s tomb in Madina This goes completely against the puritanical view of the radical Islamists inspired by the Wahhabi version of Islam It views the shrine visitation of Sufi Muslims as akin to polytheism (shirk) and thus declare them polytheists and disbelievers Similarly they have declared the Shia Muslims beyond the pale of Islam From the killing of liberal democrats in Paris Belgium and Orlando to the murder of Sufi singer Amjad Sabri in Pakistan Istanbul massacre to Bangladesh terror attack Baghdad brutality to the latest dance of destruction in Madina the Takfirist doctrines of the Islamic State are at play One thing is common in all this spate of terrorist attacks: The radical religious zealots are killing those whom they declare infidels (kafir) polytheists (mushrik) apostates (murtad) heretics (mulhid) and blasphemers in their retrogressive jurisprudential terms applied in the self-imposed Islamic caliphate In this violent takfirist worldview people belonging to all these ‘un-Islamic’ categories are mubah-al-dam (whose blood can be shed) and wajib al-qatl (whose killing is obligatory in religion) With the IS gaining strength of western-supplied weaponry of mass destruction the violent jihadist doctrines are playing havoc across much of the world both in Islamic and non-Islamic countries Though their actual targets are the ones who have been specified in the above jurisprudential Islamic terms the common non-combatant civilians regardless of faith and creed are also massacred in the wanton jihadist killing as ‘collateral damage’ Most particularly liberal democrats free thinkers bloggers and secular activists of both the Muslim and non-Muslim communities are hacked to death The constant brutal terror attacks in Dhaka Bangladesh are gruesome examples The perpetrators of Dhaka attack have all been described as “well educated and from affluent families” Obviously they were not ‘paid fighters’ nor they were ignoramuses Their eyes were set on seeking martyrdom in the holy month of Ramzan in a crazy bid to make the month ‘a mayhem for the disbelievers’ as they were taught by the IS ideologues At the beginning of Ramzan IS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani exhorted the jihadist followers around the world: "Get prepared be ready to make it a month of calamity everywhere for the non-believers” Thus the wave of the ongoing jihadist atrocities is against the ‘kafirs’ and ‘mushrikin’ (disbelievers) a term which the IS jihadists take to include both non-Muslims and moderate Muslims It is utterly shocking for the common Muslims that Ramzan which is a month of spiritual devotion self-restraint and introspection is viewed by the jihadists as a month of conquest and dominion over the world In an article on BBC Shiraz Maher the author of Salafi-Jihadismhas explained why so-called Islamic State chooses to bomb during Ramzan He writes: “Juxtaposed alongside that ascetic puritanism is the view of radicals who regard Ramzan as a month of conquest and plunder.. and this year in Saudi Arabia, The MMRDA also has another option for seeking funds.The argument started because of my kids playing in the street.
