Supreme Court Seeks Report on Urgent Listing of Petition Challenging Notification for Exchanging Rs 2,000 Notes

The Supreme Court has ordered a report from its Registry on the issue of urgent listing of a petition challenging the notifications for exchanging Rs 2,000 notes without slips and ID cards. The petitioner, Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay, has appealed for an immediate hearing in this matter. The vacation bench of Justice Aniruddha Bose and Justice Rajesh Bindal issued this order. On June 1, the Supreme Court had refused an urgent hearing on Upadhyay’s petition challenging these notifications. The bench had said that it would not hear such petitions during summer vacations.

Notes Worth Rs 80,000 Crore Exchanged So Far

Ashwini Upadhyay said that this issue is very important because Maoists, terrorists, and separatists are changing 2,000 notes, and according to media reports, notes worth Rs 80,000 crore have been changed so far. The bench said that they cannot go by media reports and asked Upadhyay to mention it on Friday. In the meantime, the court will look at the registry’s report. The court also questioned how the matter could be mentioned again when it had already been mentioned before. Upadhyay claimed that in a short span of time, banks have returned Rs 50,000 crore worth of notes of other denominations to customers in exchange for Rs 2,000 denomination notes.

An Appeal Was Filed in the Supreme Court Against the Decision of May 29

Ashwini Upadhyay filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against the May 29 decision of the Delhi High Court. In this petition, he challenged the notification issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the State Bank of India (SBI) to replace the Rs 2,000 bank note without any document. On May 19, the Reserve Bank of India had announced the withdrawal of 2,000 notes. These notes can be deposited in the bank account by September 30 or can be exchanged for notes of lower value. However, Rs 2,000 notes remain valid currency.

In conclusion, the Supreme Court has sought a report on the issue of urgent listing of a petition challenging notifications for exchanging Rs 2,000 notes without slips and ID cards. The petitioner, Ashwini Upadhyay, has appealed for an immediate hearing in this matter. The court has also questioned why the matter is being mentioned again and has asked for a report from its registry. The issue is important because Maoists, terrorists, and separatists are changing Rs 2,000 notes, and notes worth Rs 80,000 crore have been changed so far, according to media reports. An appeal was filed in the Supreme Court against the decision of May 29, challenging the notification issued by the RBI and SBI to replace the Rs 2,000 bank note without any document.
