Nearly two-thirds of Indians online support Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, a survey by a domestic consultancy has said.

“66 per cent of Indians online stand with Modi on demonetisation...people surveyed believe that pain will eventually help eradicate black money, fight corruption and reduce corruption,” the survey by Nihilent Analytics said.

It, however, did not mention the number of people which were surveyed but said it was designed to listen to people’s “articulated expectations as well as unarticulated aspirations“.

22 per cent of people were extremely supportive of the mammoth exercise reaching its logical conclusion, while 24 per cent were very supportive.
