Those months are Feb-March & June 2017.
Politically, this period will effect North-West, North-East regions of India, where terrorism and anti-govt activities are more.
More countries can follow Indian Government’s idea of demonitizing higher currency bills, but with better preparation.
Saturn gets into stationary position in Dhanus Rasi during last week of March 2017 for some time and then keeps moving into forward direction with retarded speed. Saturn remains into stationary motion for some moments before it starts moving backward.

Saturn retrogrades whenever Sun enters one Trine sign from its position (Sun in Aries during April 2017) and comes back into direct motion while Sun transits another Trine sign (Sun in Leo during August 2017).
Usually this period is less than 5 months.
