New Delhi, June 1, 2017: Aimed at removing the parallel or shadow economy, the demonetisation drive taken up by the government in November 2016 had three distinct benefits, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said here on Thursday.

Addressing media on completion of three years of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, the minister said “There were three distinct benefits from demonetisation. Firstly, there is a greater movement towards digitisation, taxpayers’ base has increased and a message has gone loud and clear that it is no longer safe to deal in cash.”

He added that all these steps are towards ‘Operation Clean Money’.
