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...

What makes Great Work Places?

It is natural for all of us to dream to get job in great  workplaces, as we spend majority of conscious hours at work.  Great workplaces,  empowers its people. Demonstrates an affection towards organisation and develop a desire to stay with the organisation. What makes great workplaces ? Research  proves, “more money doesn’t make employee happier, nor cosy office premises”.   It is the “ Leaders” , who  play a crucial role in bringing up  great workplaces to work, with the trust and  commitment he demonstrate  among the employees of all ranks. This facilitates employees to develop a trust towards their Leaders and develop a desire to stay with the organisation despite opportunities to work elsewhere. Take an extra effort and engage in behaviours that contribute to business success. This attitude will tend to lead maximum job satisfaction i.e I like my work and I do it well with maximum job contribution ; I help my organisation to achieve the goals. They are ent

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


Y ou have become a  true mother when you carry your brain child for years and deliver it after 3 years.Thats the feel I got when I refurbished our CBHR on June 16-2018.  It was a cloudy Saturday when we had around 35 registrations the day before . We anticipated 20 HR leaders for the event. However we had commiited 10+ attending the event. Ramzon weekend and rains blessed us to have a small interactive team this time. Members were given New CBHR membership cards. As I always say " Small has nothing to do with Value Offered" . The program started at10 :30 am with opening speech by me on CBHR its Idea and the Vision. Later the floor was opened to brainstorming on path forward. Several ideas got opened up and the agenda for next meeting was also fixed. Then it was a session by me on " Innovation" under the Blue Ocean Framework. Later Mr Vig CPO of Mosaikrisk also presented his project work on " Gamification and PMS". The
