In a surprise move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to make another address to the nation on the notes ban on December 31.
According to the reports, PM Modi is likely to speak about the roadmap post the demonetisation period especially on the steps likely to be taken to ease cash flow that has been a major problem ever since demonetisation took place.
Furthermore, he might also talk about the steps needed to deal with the problems the economy faces after the demonetisation was announced on November 8.
It is to be noted that in the past few public meetings, Modi has been urging the public to believe in him and bear with the inconvenience for 50 days, which is set to end tomorrow December 30.

In his last "Mann ki Baat" address for the year on December 25, PM introduced two new schemes to promote digital transactions — Lucky Grahak Yojana and Digi-Dhan Vyapar Yojana.
