Off late Govt is cracking on corrupt Govt Officers and taking action on them is a good step.It is good step and should be continued.Also Judiciary should be improved so that pendency of cases should be reduced.No case more then 5 years old should remain pending. more  
The black money crack down might not have given full result, but it has some impact and one or more in the coming days may yield result. There is sincerity of the government and result will be visible in the coming days. more  
Domnetisation had erdicated duplicate fakevmoney in our cash system the figure is note mentioned any where Its A large positive effect on our economy more  
Instead of crackdowns and force, which is used on opposition, and never on ruling party who are actually corrupt today, abolish the pink colored 2000 rupees compact note which is very convenient for black money generation. Demonetization has no meaning if 2000 rupees note is issued officially by the Modi government. Even 500 notes are bad for black-money. 100 and 200 rupees notes are sufficient. more
