Editor's note: This is the second in a series of four big questions asked after the announcement of demonetisation on 8 November, 2016. C-Voter conducted opinion polls over the course of six waves in order to map out the trajectory of opinions over time. You can read the responses to the first big question herethird big question here and fourth big question here. Here is the second set of findings of the C-Voter Tracking Poll on Demonetisation.

In coming to terms with the fact that the announcement made 86.4 percent of Indian currency worthless, one of the queries posed to respondents was related to whether they felt the hardships they were suffering were worth it in the battle against black money. This was the second question to be put forward to respondents across 23 states and over 400 Lok Sabha constituencies over the process of six waves.

Wave 1: Second week of November (10 days after demonetisation)
Wave 2: Fourth week of November (20 days after demonetisation)
Wave 3: First week of December (30 days after demonetisation)
Wave 4: Third week of December (40 days after demonetisation)
Wave 5: Fourth week of December (50 days after demonetisation)
Wave 6: First week of November (One year after demonetisation)

The findings are presented below:

Question 1: How much of a problem was the ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes?
Question 3: How would you rate the quality of implementation?
Question 4: How was your experience with banks and ATMs?
