Disruption in Parliament . How is it different in India? Disruptions are usually symptoms of fractured political environment where BIPARTISANSHIP is hard to come and so In INDIA-Individual lawmakers have limited involvement in They neither control convening of Parliament nor have freedom So, governmenthas no incentive to engage with individual MP's INDIVIDUAL MP's have a GREATER ROLE to play Parliament's functioning to vote
Disruption in Parliament TO DO Empower legislatures to call a session. In fact in many democracies(US,UK), meetings go on entire year with prefixed calendars In some countries, Pres can convene session on request of Repeal of Anti-Defection provisions which have gagged voting Uttrakhand and Arunachal have shown that anti-defection specified no. of MP's freedom doesn't guarantee political stability

Demonetisation Purpose of money in an economy 1. Medium of exchange 2. Unit of value 3. Store of value-be it permanent or transient (non-monetary assets) Even interest rates on FD's rarely offer inflation-adjusted returns and PHYSICAL(gold/property) etc. Currency offers a disadvantage of depreciating with inflation. So people put savings in FINANCIAL(shares/debentures/MF etc)
Demonetisation . If transient-why do people invest in it? To conduct transactions, we need LIQUID MONEY or M1 (Physical Most readily available for commerce Stock and not flow Nearly 87 % of total currency in circulation and 56 % of M1 Economy' health in peril for short-term-As health isn't a function + DD's etc) What did DEMONETISATION target? What has it done? withdrawn of stock
Demonetisation M1 is like the oil lubricating the wheels of commerce Replacement rate less and Rs 2000 at times not useful for transactions . Whatto do? Fast printing of replacement notes especially 500- and 100- Encourage to go cashless Issue is that both are time-taking processes
