Unable to access cash from banks or ATMs for a brief spell temporarily derailed the economy. A year later, the digital transformation has changed the payment landscape.
Growth will definitely bounce in, if not immediately but in the long term with demonetization. There will be more transparency with the use of electronic payments.

So, your employment will be niche with new type of jobs pumping in.
