    • Chandigarh, Nov 8- The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, has strongly dismissed the allegations levelled by the opposition describing demonetization as a scam, and an effort to benefit the millionaires by enabling them to convert their black money into white. 
    • He was speaking at a seminar organized here today to mark the completion of one year of demonetization in which, experts, politicians, officers of the state government and representatives from judiciary and press participated. 
    • Hailing the decision on demonetization, Mr Manohar Lal said this reform had been made possible due to the political will of the Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, and his tirade against the black money and corruption would continue. 
    • Describing black money as the money which is anonymous and unaccounted for, he said even anonymous property fell in the category of black money as it was earned through black money. Though implementation of any reform without any intimation could initially make people feel uneasy but it proves to be useful in the long run, he added. 
    • Corruption is a worldwide phenomenon and various steps are being taken to eliminate it from the society. But it is a continuous process and cannot be rooted out in a single day. Even after 70 years of Independence, the value of our currency is not good as compared to dollar and this is due to the lack of a proper system. 
    • The vision of the Prime Minister is very clear and besides demonetization, Aadhaar, Jan Dhan Yojna and Goods and Services Tax are among the other important steps he has taken to eradicate corruption, ensure transparency and simplify structure. 
    • Post-demonetization, the incidents of stone-pelting in Jammu and Kashmir have declined by 75 per cent and the incidents of Naxal violence by 20 per cent. Apart from this, the number of tax payers has increased by 26.5 per cent and e-returns have increased by 28 per cent. Digital transactions in 2016 which aggregated Rs 87 crore, had increased to Rs 138 crore in 2017-18. Similarly, the number of Point of Sale (PoS) devices has increased from 15 lakh to Rs 28 lakh in one year. 
    • He said in ‘’Notebandi’’, only the currency was changed as a result of which huge amount of black money came out. Banks have been able to increase their deposits and the revenue of the centre and state governments has increased considerably. 
    • Earlier, the Finance Minister, Capt Abhimanyu, described demonetization as a revolutionary step in the economic history of the country. He hoped that the suggestions given by experts in the seminary would further help the state government in finalizing future policies. 
    • Mr Rajesh Khullar, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, stressed the need to educate people about black money and said the younger generation should be encouraged to pay tax. The people have supported the decision on demonetization. 
    • Director General, Prisons, Dr K.P Singh, emphasized the need to properly train the police to ensure effective implementation of provisions of the Money Laundering Act to keep a check on black money. Apart from this, there should be proper coordination between the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Police. A special task force should be constituted for the eradication of black money and co-ordinated efforts should be made in this direction, he added. 
    • BJP Chandigarh State President, Mr Sanjay Tondon, said demonetization was a widely accepted decision. “We are heading towards minimizing cash transactions and this is being monitored on quarterly basis,” he added.
    • Among those present included the Education Minister, Mr Ram Bilas Sharma, Urban Local Bodies Minister, Mrs Kavita Jain, Transport Minister, Mr  Krishan Lal Panwar, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr Nayab Singh Saini, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Mr Krishan Kumar Bedi, Minister of State for Cooperation, Mr Manish Grover, Minister of State for Public Health and Engineering, Dr Banwari Lal, State BJP Media Incharge, Mr Rajiv Jain, Chief Secretary, Mr D.S Dhesi, OSD to Chief Minister,  Mr Bhupeshwar Dayal, and other senior officers of the state government.
