New Delhi: As opposition launches nation-wide protest on completion of one year of demonetisation, calling it a bane for Indian economy; the Government is set to celebrate anti-black money day at the same time.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year, banned the legal tender of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 on November 8, calling it a move to curb the problem of black money.

The senior leaders of the government will go to different parts of the country and educate people on the pros of note ban.
