Demonetisation has negatively impacted job creation by hurting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the immediate run, an Assocham survey today said.

However, the large and well-organised sectors of the Corporate India stand to benefit in the long run, Assocham’s Bizcon Survey said.

“Demonetisation of high value currency notes would leave quite a negative impact on SMEs, rural consumption and job creation in the immediate run,” it said.

Further, it said easing of prices in vegetables and some other crops is attributed to incidents of distress sale against the backdrop of cash scarcity. About 92 per cent said the demonetisation will have a positive impact on inflation.
