There is a slowdown happening alright and the Central Statistics Office (CSO) data released recently seems to bear that out. The economic indicators for November and [...]Read More

Life in the Times of Demonetisation

8 November, 2016 will go down in history as the date that changed India.  On this day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi set India on an unchartered course, which even he was unsure of, when he made the dramatic announcement of withdrawing of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 note as legal tender and replace it with new Rs 500 and Rs 2000 notes.
