Commenting on demonetisation, Singh said, “There is always opposition to changes.” He also stated that the government is taking several steps. “We have seen that the government has evolved and has been flexible in the entire matter. But the basic purpose of demonetisation is to curtail black money from becoming regular money for those who are hoarding it,” he added.
When quizzed about the situation of co-operative banks, Singh said, “Co-operative banks do not have a mechanised and computerised system. RBI had a concern. I am sure they would be looking at on how we would reach out and how to take the money to rural India. This is taking place effectively under the supervision of RBI. The decision lies with the RBI and what they think about it.”
He also revealed that the government is also looking at targeting educational institutions especially medical institutes to bring in reform and policy framework. The government has plans to take forward the health sector by a creating a PPP model.
