Real Estate to Real State?

Now that every average middle class is celebrating the initiative of demonetization keeping in mind long term benefits I am not sure if they have thought about the following scenario. I am sure at least 50% to 60% of the salaried middle class would have invested their hard earned savings in land/flats etc. I am sure by all practical scenario this industry was dominated by 25-30% cash transaction which significantly determined the Market Price of the property.
With this new initiative since existing 500 /1000 Rs reserves are abolished the demand created by this excess cash in the market shall have serious impact on market prices of the properties.
Lets assume an average salaried middle class has invested 25 lakhs -30 lakhs in a land or a flat based on market rate @ Rs 1000 /SFT. In that Rs 1000 /SFT ,25%-30% of that demand is purely created by cash transactions and henceforth this shall be significantly reduced as reduced cash flow.
The net value of his/her proper shall go down by 25% to 30% when he or she even wants to sell for an emergency.
On the other side if the bank has given loan assuming market value as 30 lakhs and 70% is granted the customer is paying interest for a property which has no return at all and banks value of the property is also diminished .
Since this is loan against property for the banks the net value of the bank asset also comes down.
With real estate already being in a sluggish mode this shall have very serious impact on Demand & Supply and middle class who has saved and invested in the last 5-10 years.
In a 1.2 billion populated economy in which highly diversified direct and indirect factors driving the country's economy its not easy to connect the dots and see the predictable nature of this initiative . Even the best of the financial analyst cannot curb inflation by multiple moves at crucial time though we all know the standard measures that were taken by that time.This economy is so diverse and we cant connect all dots to see a pattern here.My question is as a country are we prepared for this at this time of global economic scenario.
I just wanted people to think about this too and connect the dots in this move rather than just be emotional about it.
The question here is not about courage or is it a great initiative or not. Definitely it is !
On the individual front people like me have more rights to celebrate this move as a tax payer who has only submitted original bills till now as salaried employee every year and paid full tax even when we were mocked/ridiculed by peers for being so honest.
My question is will it eradicate the intended corrupted or collapse the genuine middle class sweat earned wealth?
I am waiting to see the real state of the initiative...

Our vehicle is yet to come!

It was two weeks back one early morning I got into a cab towards Chennai airport .The driver applied a sudden brake and after few jerks the journey became smooth .Like a typical day I was checking my mobile for messages and the driver suddenly opened up with this statement to me  “This is what is being lucky all about”. Wondering what has happened I asked   why and what do you mean? He asked me didn’t you notice the puppy dog which was about to be hit by our car was taken by the family of another Honda city car which came behind us. I said “No”. He said one statement  “Would the puppy have ever imagined that from today it’s going to get a great family and meal from now on?” After casual conversations with him when I boarded the flight and I was re-thinking on the incident. What was about to happen first for the puppy was a great disaster but in few seconds it became a great wonder for life. On a relative scale its fraction of seconds in puppy’s life may be its years in

Top seven things that leadership candidates should think about!

Ever since the concepts of management got evolved the one phrase which would be undoubtedly accepted is “It’s not the volume but the value that matters” . This phrase becomes more apt in the leadership hiring process as it is purely a value transfer in terms of many parameters which is do with hard competencies ,soft competencies etc. Having been and continuing to be in the recruitment and more precisely in the leadership hiring industry in my experience the following are the seven key parameters which might be unstated but one as a candidate should keep in mind when we go through leadership hiring process. Success is appreciated & equally failure lessons: In my experience I have seen resumes and leadership candidates talking great about their achievements, projects success, driving company results etc. As much as these are really great in a span of close to decades of experience I am sure everyone would have made wrong decisions and seen failures as well. In my exp

CBHR- HR on the Wheels - Our First Initiative

Very recently I read about the nudge theory which impacts the behaviour of Individuals. The theory in simple terms means  "Small activities or triggers can influence behaviour of individuals or collective group.   “For example a simple LED directional arrows in walking path can direct humans to walk in a straight line in a much crowded environment. This shall have significant impact in crowd management etc. To know more on nudge theory please visit  CLICK HERE FOR NUDGE THEORY .As founder of CBHR - Chennai Beyond HR - An initiative to take  HR Beyond Organisations ,  an initiative  was taken for road discipline to make a statement that HRs can do beyond organisations and make small impacts.
