Top 3 Economic Reforms: Ratan Tata

Industrial conglomerate Tata Sons interim chairman Ratan Tata said the government's demonetisation programme is among the “three most important economic reforms in India's history“ and needs the nation's support for implementation. “Demonetisation is amongst the three most important economic reforms in India's history , along with delicensing and GST (Goods and Services Tax),“ Tata tweeted.
“The Prime Minister's recent focus on mobile and digital payments will also greatly facilitate the transition from a cash-driven economy to cashless economy , which, in the long term, will enormously benefit the poor and the underprivileged,“ he added.
In its bid to curb black money economy , the Indian government on Nov 8 demonetised Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 notes. “The parallel black money economy in India has fueled tax evasion, money laundering and corruption. The Prime Minister has displayed enormous courage in waging war on the black market economy in the country through the implementation of a major demonetisation programme,“ Tata said. “The government's firm resolve to fight and eliminate black money needs the support and cooperation of all like-minded citizens of India who would like to see a more equitable distribution of the nation's resources in a new India of tomorrow, based on merit and equal opportunity,“ he added.
In one of his earlier tweets on November 24, Tata suggested the government to use special relief measures to ease the daily hardship faced by the poorer sections of society due to the demonetisation drive. According to Tata, the present note ban implementation is said to be causing great hardship to the common man.
