Furthermore, over 54% of the CFOs believe that the impact of demonetisation has been neutral, while 56% are “highly optimistic” of the country's macro-economic growth in the next four to five years, the Deloitte Annual CFO survey reported.

“The country remains optimistic about economic prospects, as it remains buoyant post-demonetisation and amongst global uncertainties,” the survey noted.
