He slammed Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for making haphazard preparations, and said everything was ad-hoc.

He also criticised Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian and Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das and said they are sitting idle to tackle the problem created as a result of the demonetisation move.

“I raised the question of sending out Arvind Subramaninam and Shaktikanta Das, but Jaitley came to their defence and now we know they didn’t do any work, somebody has to be responsible,” Swamy said.

In value terms, Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes together account for Rs 14.2 lakh crore, which is 86.4 percent of the total as of March 31, 2016.

However, Swamy hailed the demonetisation move and said it would play an important role in bringing down terror financing.

He said this will give the countrymen one year of breathing space from terrorist attacks which are based on counterfeit notes.

He said had he been consulted, he would have suggested to the government that people who return demonetised currency notes be exempted from having to pay income tax on the money.

“We should have prepared a contingency plan in advance so that the ordinary people, particularly in far-flung areas, do not suffer. We are now learning by doing,” he had said.

He also appreciated PM’s thinking in bringing out new measures like banks waiving ATM charges, extending the usage of existing currency to November 24, higher limit withdrawal per day and per week, and recalibration of ATMs (automated teller machines).
