He also appreciated everyone for supporting him. He said, “I bow down my head to the people of this country as they are standing in long queues to exchange there Rs.500 and Rs.1000 currency notes without any violence.

“People voted me in to fight corruption, Shouldn’t I do it?” asked PM Modi. “If any money that was looted in India and has left Indian shores, it is our duty to find out about it,” PM Narendra Modi added further.
He also said that, we have also made changes in our foreign policies and agreements to keep track of the money going outside of the country whether it’s black or white. “We are keeping track of Indian accounts in foreign countries too,” he added.
“We had also introduced a scheme to allow people to help them turn there black money into white, by just depositing some percent of there black amount. People had participated in that too and first time we were able to collect Rs.67,000 crore,” aid PM Modi.
A total of Rs.1,25,000 crore has been deposited in Government Treasury till now, told Prime Minister of India.
“I feel people’s pain too, but, the steps taken were not the display of my arrogance. I have seen poverty and people’s problem.”

“I will expose corruption and all the black money holders since the day India got Independence.” He also said, If I have to employ 1 lakh employees for that, I will.
“I have more projects in my mind to remove every bit of black money from the country. And to ensure this, cooperate with me for 50 days.”
At last, he said “I know the forces are up against me, they may not let me live, they may ruin my life as their 70 years of loot is in trouble, but, I will fight and I’m prepared for it.”
Time to talk about the developments, SBI (State Bank of India) got deposits worth Rs.75945 crore till Sunday evening. To ease the queues in banks, government has launched Rs.500 banknotes. Now, instead of distributing all the Rs.100, Rs.50, and Rs.10 notes in exchange, banks will also be giving away new Rs.500 notes. This will definitely ease the queue in bank. ATM limit has also been raised to Rs.2,500 per day. Exchange amount limit has also been raised to Rs.4,500 per day.
The new banknotes can not be stacked in ATMs as they need to be recalibrated. According to the latest updates, all the ATM machines will be recalibrated within two weeks. Withdrawals from banks are now limited to Rs.24,000 a week as daily withdrawal limit of Rs.10,000 has been removed. That means, you can now withdraw Rs.24,000 at once or in a week. There will also be a restriction of Rs.2,500 per day per card for few days, which will later be raised to Rs.4,000.
