(This article was first published on 9 November 2021 and is being republished from The Quint's archives in light of the sixth anniversary of demonetisation, on 8 November 2022.)

PM Modi's supporters were quick to call the announcement banning the 500 and 1000 notes as his 'master-stroke' to tackle the black money, corruption, fake notes and terrorism.

The stroke, however, killed more jobs than the black money.

So, was the government able to cleanse the economy of the black money? Has there been any economic progress that could be attributed to the note-ban?

To answer these questions, we caught up with NDTV's former managing editor, Aunindyo Chakravarty. We also spoke with journalist Brajesh Dubey who broke the news of demonetisation fifteen days before the announcement. How did he do that?

Tune in.
