Today marks the sixth anniversary of Demonetization, which was implemented by the Modi government as a way to eradicate 'black money.'

On November 8, 2016, residents all over the nation received a shock after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetization of ₹500 and ₹1000 notes. The government at that point wanted to promote digital payment and completely eradicate black money.

Following the withdrawal of the ₹500 and ₹1,000 notes, the government introduced new ₹2,000 currency notes as part of re-monetisation. The Modi government also introduced a new series of ₹500 notes. Later, a new denomination of ₹200 was also added.

Celebrating the 6th anniversary of this day, people shared some hilarious memes depicting their struggles.
