Demonetisation anniversary: Watch these videos to remember note ban

A year has passed since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the surprise move of demonetisation or note ban.

Brought in to curb black money and to encourage the agenda of digital India, the move still polarizes the public at large. Today on its first anniversary, it is simultaneously being celebrated and denounced.

It may therefore be useful to look back on the chaos that ensued on that monumental day. In the immediate aftermath of the note ban last year, DH reported extensively from the field, and captured the frustration and suffering of the common man.
