A survey on on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's app has received support from 81 per cent of participants with an approval rating of 4.6 out of 5 for the decision, official sources said today.

Close to 50,000 people have given feedback in first 24 hours of the launch of the survey yesterday, the first anniversary of the decision.

The sources also said that despite "good response" given by participants, Modi has asked officials to work on this feedback.

The sources claimed that 93 per cent of the participants in the survey on Modi's app believed his steps to fight corruption and were right and 81 per cent accused the UPA government of not taking adequate measures against these.

Ninety per cent respondents said has helped fight corruption with "huge detection of black money" and 92 per cent said a decision like this was necessary to fight graft and black money, they said citing figures.

Eighty-seven per cent of participants said they were satisfied with the results of demonetisation while 92 per cent expressed the view that a cash-less economy was taking shape and it would prove to be beneficial for the country in the long run.

Demonetisation has emerged as a rallying point for both the BJP and the opposition with the latter terming it a failure and marking its anniversary as 'black day' while the ruling party describing it as an attack on and observing the day as 'anti-blackmoney day'.

Sources recalled that Modi had sought feedback on demonetisation last year too and the decision received high approval.
