Below is the survey report from Nov 2018 and your suggestions to address the problem of black money.

My personal assessment is that over 90%of the citizens are corrupt and they love corruption. Take a simple case of our politicians and elections.As per a survey it is estimated that over Rs.60,000 crores were spent during the current election campaign out of which BJP is supposed have spent over Rs.35,000 crores. Will any party in or out of power give the correct figures. They are fooling us and we are getting fooled. Better enjoy. You are corrupt only when you are caught and declared so by the court. more  
Withdraw 2000 and 500 rupee currency gradually in a 2 year time span. USA did this over a no. of years. Today it is impossible to get a 100 Dollar bill which was not the case 10 years back. It was a mistake to introduce 2000 rupee note immediately after demonetisation. This has negated any positive effect that demonetisation could have had. Also the PM did not possibly anticipate the crookedness of Indians in general and those from his home state in particular. more  
Real estates units must sell through central govt agency,by that they would declare the value,proof of responsibility in case of defects and tax collectionis easy by GST.
The financiers will finance through govt as mortagage . more  
Currency Notes and Coins printed / minted for the past some years are being changed very frequently. This makes Elderly people, visibly impaired people to recognise them easily. Hence each coin should have definite shape and surface texture. Further, the currency notes should be given different colors for each value of notes . At present more than one or two currency value notes are in same color and hence many get confused and thus loose their money. Hence each value of currency must be given distinct different colours in future. more  
To crack down counterfeit Notes, include the words "Kashmir belongs to India"or "Kashmir is integral part of India". Thus Pakistan will not print counterfeit Notes and send in circulation in our Country. more
