Communication Studies He can be reached at [email protected] After 12-days of demonetisation there’s still both praises and curses for Prime Minister Narendra Modi It was late evening on 8 November when Modi announced on national television that India will cease to use Rs 500 Rs 1000 notes from midnight to fight fake currency and black money in the system File image of Narendra Modi AP Twelve days later a majority of people haven’t made up their minds yet on whether to name this move a revolutionary reform with short-term pain or a poorly executed big-bang idea The jury is still out on this Anyone who is tempted to give their verdict on demonetisation in the span of 12 days is undoubtedly making a mistake no matter their degree of expertise For now if one leaves the macro economy out of this the big and immediate challenge for the Modi government is to replenish the system with cash Life is quite tough for the common man in a cash-scarce cash economy as it is in the present SBI chair Arundhati Bhattacharya is optimistic that the cash-crunch will get over soon “A lot of cash is getting pushed out People have to start spending as well The ATM recalibration will be over in a few more days” Bhattacharya toldFirstpost Abanking industry official who didn’t want to be named wasn’t that optimistic “There is an acute problem as of now Even on Saturday many branches were closed There is no clarity as of now how long this will situation last” said the official Will the the issue get resolved or not is in the realm of speculation as of now but the reality is that there are still long queues before ATMs to draw money Small traders vegetable vendors contract labourers who get daily wages in cash salaried class and unbanked rural villages are hit hard (read here and here ) Those migrant laborers who work in the construction sector are hit most since their employers do not have enough cash to pay Similarly chit funds cooperative banking sector too are bearing the brunt How did cash crunch occur Broadly speaking there were both logistical and availability issues Also the government didn’t anticipate the kind of panic amongst the public post the demonetisation announcement There was lack of clarity even within the government it appears But there are two main reasons for the immediate cash crunch: First though government mints are working to their full capacity to print new notes the process started too late and their combined output is far inadequate to quickly meet the current demand With 86 percent notes in value terms having disappeared and what has been pulled out of the system it might take 3-4 months before the cash-gap is filled even though the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the government keep assuring the public that there is enough cash Clearly there was a failure on the part of the government in planning the printing of lower denomination notes to offset the annulment of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes Since these two denominations aren’t adequately available the Rs 100 denomination notes are in big demand And panic-driven cash hoarding only multiplies the problem This takes us to the second reason –technical limitations of existing ATMs ATMs typically have four trays which are typically designed to carry Rs 100 Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes Of the four trays one or two are normally designed for Rs 100 notes one for Rs 500 notes and one for Rs 1000 notes with each cassette’s holding capacity being 22 bundles Each bundle can hold 100 notes These denominations are detected and dispensed by electronic sensors when a customer enters the required amount/denominations The problem arose since the Rs 100 currency notes cannot be accommodated in other trays Hence the amount that must be filled in ATMs that aren’t recalibrated is less than Rs 5 lakh as against a minimum of at least Rs 8-10 lakhs or even more earlier The software and hardware also has to be realigned Given that there are about two lakh ATMs in the country this is a massive exercise for an engineer to work on every ATM and equip it to dispense the new Rs 500 and Rs 2000 notes According to banking sources about 40000 ATMs hadbeen replenished in the first 11 days this rate it should take 40-45 days to recalibrate the entire ATM network But since there isn’t official data yet this is still an estimate But it is fairly safe to assume that it might take 3-4 months for the situation to be normal The government’s lack of planning has reflected in certain aspects: First it could have begun printing the new notes in lower denominations a few months in advance without compromising the secrecy of the operation The logic of coming out with Rs 2000 denomination notes probably is that it requires much smaller printing time and helps infuse higher value into the system But it didn’t help much since those dealing in cash economy mainly needed lower denomination notes For them the new Rs 2000 notes became largely a showpiece This situation is expected to continue for some more time till there are enough lower denomination notes in the market Yet again the idea of marking people with ink offering cash at petrol pumps and higher limits for wedding were only touching the peripheral part of the problem Even there there was criticism The election commission wrote to the government saying inking people could lead to issues with respect to the upcoming state polls The government’s plan to up limit for wedding-related cash withdrawals to Rs 25 lakh too didn’t work well since a fundamental problem arose: How will the banker know the man who is flashing his wedding card or giving a self-declaration to claim the benefit isn’t faking “Also there is very little amount of cash with us these days to permit large withdrawals’ said the above mentioned banker requesting anonymity In short the government’s ill-preparedness surfaced again and again on the execution front Now for the next logical question: Is all the suffering by the common man in the transition phase worth the pain The positives There are of course a few positives: For sure the demonetization breaks the back of fake currencies circulating in the system in high value denominations They will become redundant for now But make no mistake this will be only for now After a few months time when the counterfeit note makers will ‘recalibrate’ their machines fake notes will yet again start coming into the economy Also the funds used for terror activities have been frozen with this move Thirdly at least a fraction of the black money (unaccounted wealth) in the system stored in the form of cash can be drawn back into the formal economy Fourth the whole exercise instills some sort of confidence in the minds of the honest taxpayer who perhaps felt demoralised looking at the easier conditions set by the government for tax-evaders in the amnesty-like black money window that ended in September For the investors too Modi government’s action sends a positive signal as it gives them an impression that this government is capable of taking tough reform decisions The negatives But it isn’t correct to say demonetization will end corruption or vaporize the entire black money in the system Corruption is so deep-rooted in society and its culture that it will refuse to die down whether the currencies change color or size Instead of the old Rs 500 Rs 1000 notes the corrupt will now seek bribes in the new denominations of Rs 500 and Rs 2000 notes Hence demonetization can’t do much to address the corruption issue Secondly much of the black money in the system is invested in some or other assets or in benami transactions The argument that as long as black money in cash returns to bank accounts post demonetization and becomes taxable isn’t a sound argument That is because a tax evader doesn’t cease to be one if he deposits his money into a bank account or uses it to buy a house or gold He is only trying to save a part of his booty to save himself from a situation that he will have to burn down the whole thing The issue of dubious rise in bank deposits in the July-September quarter has raised more questions whether some some ‘friends’ were tipped off about the move Having said that the intention behind Modi government’s move deserves credit It is a courageous unpopular move taken by any government in the country in a long time “At least some part of the black money will come back That is good news’ said D K Joshi chief economist at Crisil “However the impact of this move on the economy especially on the lower end of the pyramid will be tangible It will take at least 2-3 quarters before things become normal” Joshi said Only time will tell whether Modi’s demonetization exercise will indeed achieve its desired objectives But for now his big challenge is to replenish the cash-gap in the economy as soon as possible before it deepens the pain at the bottom of the pyramid eScan a security company that focuses on providing Enterprise Security has issued a new report highlighting many security flaws in the MIUI operating system To be clear the report points out at flaws and ‘un-intentional vulnerabilities’ in the user apps and other security apps According to the report MIUI system apps are responsible for the vulnerabilities The major points highlighted in the report state that the 13 percent of smartphone users in India with Xiaomi smartphones are at ‘a significant threat’ because of the ‘laxity’ that ‘MIUI OS has about security’ Image: Reuters The company issued a warning to Xiaomi users stating that the operating system has ‘multiple security lapses’ ‘by design’ This means that users can’t do much about the issues as Xiaomi has designed the operating system in such a way eScan highlighted ‘Mi Mover’ app as one of the main culprits which overrides the internal sandbox that Android operating system employs to ensure the security of data Mi Mover app is a system app that Xiaomi bundles with MIUI to help users migrate their user data from an older device to a new device According to the report any ‘device-administrator app’ can be uninstalled without the need to revoke its device-admin rights ‘Device administrator apps’ are special apps that add an additional level of security to prevent removal Security scanner apps employ this to ensure that rogue apps malicious scripts or viruses don’t uninstall them from the device The report also points that Mi Mover app can clone a Xiaomi smartphone in few minutes without the need to root your smartphone Other issues pointed in the report state that MIUI hides the ‘Work-Profile’ Admin app and it is not possible to differentiate between Workspace profiles and personal profile making it difficult for network administrators in the enterprise setting to check which profile they are remotely removing as part of the Enterprise Mobility Management This also poses security challenge as if the network administrator wants to remove the ‘Work-Profile’ and accidentally removes the ‘Personal-Profile’ In addition to the difficulty in distinguishing it is not easy to remove the ‘Work-Profile; in the first place The report was compiled by Sachin Raste a senior research analyst working with eScan We reached out to Xiaomi for a comment on the accusations and Xiaomi provided an official statement regarding the issues pointed by eScan Xiaomi emphasised that ‘user privacy’ is of utmost importance for the company The smartphone maker stated that it strongly disagrees with the allegations made by eScan It pointed out that eScan report assumes that you would need an unlocked device without any password PIN pattern or fingerprint security enabled Image Credit: Google Play Store The company stated that anyone who can get their hands on an unlocked smartphone can wreak havoc and cause irreversible damage to the owner of the smartphone with all the data available on the smartphone Xiaomi stated that it encourages users to set a password PIN pattern lock or enable the fingerprint to unlock the smartphone This ensures that all the private data is secure on the smartphone unless the person with malicious intent gets his/her hands on the PIN password or pattern Addressing the concerns associated with Mi Mover app Xiaomi pointed out that this tool is made to make it convenient for users to switch from old smartphone to a new one It also pointed out that the users require a password for Mi Mover to initiate the process To use the Mi Mover app the users need to unlock their smartphones Which means that using Mi Mover app requires two separate layers of security protection A spokesperson from Xiaomi pointed out that taking a smartphone in an unlocked state is a ‘very high barrier’ and unlikely to happen in day-to-day life This makes the type of attacks mentioned her as theoretical at best Xiaomi pointed out that to stop your private data from leaking users should ensure that they don’t lose their smartphone or give away the unlock PIN password or pattern to anyone else Paris: Japan’s Kei Nishikori climbed two places to fifth in the latest ATP rankings released on Monday at the expense of
