It has been ten days since Prime Minister Narendra Modi demonetised 500 and 1,000 rupee currency notes, and there have been many news reports on the chaos that the process of currency exchange has created. The Wire visited various banks, ATMs, and even the Reserve Bank Of India (RBI) to get a pulse on how people think about demonetisation. You can watch that video report here.
On the tenth day, we visited Narela in the North West district of Delhi to speak to factory workers, daily wage earners, housewives and migrant workers about how they are dealing with this unprecedented situation. Narela is an industrial area located at the Delhi-Haryana border, and most of the people living there belong to the working class and poor sections of the society.
