 Indian laborers handle banana branches at the largest and busiest wholesale fruit market in Calcutta, eastern India, 16 November 2016. Media reports state major wholesalers are facing troubles selling their stock of fresh fruits and vegetables as cash shortages continues to affect the market.  Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the elimination of the 500 and 1,000 rupee bills (7.37 and 14.73 US dollars, respectively), hours before the measure took effect at midnight 08 November, for the purpose of fighting against 'black money' (hidden assets) and corruption in the country. The decision sparked some protests, while storekeepers complained about dwindling sales because many citizens lack the cash to buy the most basic products, as lines get longer at ATMs and banks.
