Demonetisation 2016: The notification on withdrawing cash for marriages…(recovering lost art)

One was assuming whether Indian government has lost the art of writing detailed notifications which they wrote so often before the 1991 era.

In those days, everything for you was planned by the government and written painstakingly in the notices. The language and details stunned one and all as it was so meticulously written. One  often asked how is it that Government knows so much about me which I also don’t know. But then such were the times.

With all this liberalisation and markets, one would have thought this art too would have been lost somewhere. More so in the twitter and whatsapp generation where brevity is of utmost importance, who has time to think and write in such details.

But one is wrong. If the recent RBI notification is to be believed, the skills are intact.

    Dear Amol,

    Joke is doing round that now you need to submit the list of your Saalis to RBI. With an affidavit from Saalis and amount you plan to give in shagun.

  2. Amol Agrawal Says:

    Why joke? I am surprised that they missed mentioning these details in the notice. How could they?

  3. Shekhar Says:

    “A detailed list of persons to whom the cash withdrawn is proposed to be paid, together with a declaration from such persons that they do not have a bank account. The list should indicate the purpose for which the proposed payments are being made”

    saalis who don’t have bank accounts are eligible for shagun
