Though demonetisation was primarily intended to smoke out black money, it has had a many beneficial fall outs, one of them being what has been taxing the Centre about incidents of stone throwing which has resulted in loss of many youth and causing injuries in J&K. This shows that those indulging in it were for cash reward orchestrated by Pakistan and the separatists in pumping Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes. Now that the high denomination notes have no value it is no longer attractive for youngsters who were involved in stone throwing. This is a window of opportunity to make all out efforts to create necessary infrastructure both in education and employment through massive dissemination of information.
