PIL against Ban on Rs. 500 & Rs. 1000 notes in Bombay HC & SC

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.

  • There are all emergency services affected due to this PM has to think on layman side before putting decision. Those family marriage ceremony from where those family where to gathered new currencies. There are villages daily wages worker are also suffered due to this.

  • Those who are opposing this move seems to have lots of BLACK money / hard cash trashed in the lockers,
    There is nothing to panic about ample of time is there to change / deposit the existing currency notes, provided they are white money
    Bravo Modiji hats off to master stroke !!

    It is also an exposure that IT DEPT has failed to curb this accumulation in one form of another
    RBI is not having any account to remit, why some are allowed to remit in RBI? RBI allow exchange, does it mean billion old notes can be exchanged by a few privileged to convert to new currencies?
    What about religious insitutions which are hoarding huge private funds? What about mutual funds , NBFCs and other participatory notes, they can remit old currencies as their chest money with back date receipts?
    Whatabout trade transactions, with cash flow of crores of money with fake sale and purchase?
    Reality is, genuine small holders are again victims of these policies, whales have large holes.

  • In India how many of such people exist with crores of hard currency with them. Maximum 1 lakh people. But 130 Crores of Indian Population is affected by this.Inefficiency of Income tax department, has led to fire in the entire forest.

  • This is like penalizing entire country for fault of few. I believe the pain of common man in left unheard and going unnoticed. This needs serious thought.
    Why remediation act was not thought of or planned in advance. Rs 100 notes must have been in circulation in advance time of 2 or 3 months. Rs 2000 notes must have been introduced 2 months ago. Then atleast common people would have had some amount of cash for their daily needs
