As per Hindustam Times Two senior advocates from Mumbai namely Advocate Jamshed Mistry and advocate Jabbar Singh have moved the Bombay high court (HC) urging it to take suo moto cognisance of the Union government’s decision to stop the circulation of all currency notes of the denomination of Rs. 500 and Rs 1,000 arguing that the government’s move was rushed and had caused great inconvenience to the general public.
According to Petitioner advocates the current demonetisation could have been done only through an ordinance, or amendment of the Act, and not merely through a gazetted notification he further said that merely giving four hours notice is no notice at all and that one’s right to life and right to occupation/conduct business were severely affected.
Honourable Justice MS Karnik, who was presiding over the vacation bench, has now directed Advocate Jamshed Mistry and advocate Jabbar Singh to plead their case before a regular bench of the court as “there were several questions of law involved.
One more PIL was filed in Supreme Court against the Government decision to stop the circulation of all currency notes of the denomination of Rs. 500 and Rs 1,000 by Mr. Sangam Lal Pandey.
He Argued in his petition that it affected various emergency services including Medical, Educational and Marriage Ceremonies. He argued that Private Hospital have refused to operate due to non-receipt of payment in a currency other than that of Rs. 500 and Rs.1000.
