Abstract

This paper explores the effect of demonetization on India’s financial sector. By collecting and analyzing data in this field in the past three years from RBI, this paper concluded that demonetization increased the total value and volume of financial transactions in India while eliminating counterfeit banknotes worthy of 4 billion rupees and stopping them into circulation, increasing the volume and value of debit and credit cards on the POS and encouraging mobile payments. However, this policy did not provide the bottom class of India with more financing channels to reduce their financing costs, nor did it achieve the government’s initial goals about anti-counterfeiting and anti-black money.
