Indeed, even before Delhiites were compelled to invest hours queuing up for the ATM, acquiring money was an expensive recommendation. In 2014, the general population of Delhi burned through six million hours and more than nine crore rupees just to get physical money, as indicated by a study distributed by Institute for Business in Global Context at Tufts University.

"The cost of getting trade out Delhi is around 10-15% higher [than it was in 2014]", says Raghavendra Srivastava of Impetus Research, the statistical surveying organization that took a shot at the study. Whatever remains of India invests around 33% the energy and cash spent by the inhabitants in the capital.

For India, the aggregate cost to the economy was over Rs. 200 billion, while for United States, it was over Rs. 12 trillion.

"We have considered the cost of trade out more than 70 nations around the globe and India scores among the most noteworthy as far as the expenses to the shoppers," says Bhaskar Chakravorti, senior partner dignitary at IBGC and co-creator of the study.

There are different segments to this cost of money. The cost to shoppers incorporates ATM expenses and in addition the open door cost of the time spent gathering money.
