Demonetisation has yielded positive results as 60 per cent of terror-related violence in Jammu and Kashmir has come down and there has been a 50 per cent drop in hawala transactions, said union minister for PMO, personnel, public grievances and pensions and development of northern region Jitendra Singh.
Addressing the media on Monday at the national conference on e-Governance, the minister said most of the fake currency and hawala money were used to encouraging violence in Jammu and Kashmir and Maoist violence and unrest in the northeast region of the country.
"The government received information that two fake Indian currency printing press in Pakistan were shut down after the demonetisation drive was launched by the union government. Within two months, the country saw what demonetisation can do", he said.
Regarding the e-Governance conference, the minister said this is the first conference in the country that is entirely paperless as all the material is online. He praised AP for its approach towards being technology savvy and being an inspiration to other states. "Technology will provide citizen centric, transparent, expeditiousness governance. Every third or fourth person in the country is below 40 years and technology will make it easier for the youth to participate in governance," he added.
Information technology minister Palle Raghunatha Reddy said the chief minister's vision is to developing the state. "The state government aims to make AP one among the top three states by 2022 and number one state in the country by 2029 as well as a role model for the world by 2050. This is possible only through technology," he added.
