“The survey clearly shows that majority of respondents hailed the demonetisation. The government’s strategic clampdown on black money and tax evasion has surely gone well with the young and urban India,” said Amit Adarkar, CEO of IPSOS India.

More than 80 per cent of those surveyed were below the age of 35 and belong to one of India’s top 10 metros and cities — New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and Lucknow. (IANS)

Report from the perspective of aam aadmi…do not tarnish the reputation.
