Why was it hard to exchange the Indian rupee?
The decision of the prime minister was made to effectively help stop counterfeit currency and corruption. "Black money and corruption are the biggest obstacles in eradicating poverty," Modi said in his address to the nation.
This made 86 percent of India's currency considered no longer valid. Since then, it was replaced with a Mahatma Gandhi new series.
On Saturday, March 11, 2017 confidence was restored back into the Indian economy after Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) party won the majority of seats in the election by a landslide. This turn of events caused the Indian rupee to gain its strength once again.
