Supreme Court verdict on Demonetisation
  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetisation on November 8, 2016 to eradicate black money and facilitate digital transactions. Since then Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes were demonetised. However, it was announced that new currency notes can be obtained by submitting these currency notes to banks.
  • 58 petitions were filed in the Supreme Court against the central government's demonetisation move. The court announced that all these petitions will be heard by a 5-judge constitutional bench.
  • Accordingly, the case was taken up for hearing before the bench of Justices SA Naseer, PR Kawai, AS Bopanna, V. Ramasubramanian and PV Nagaratna.
  • After hearing all the arguments, the judges said, 'The investigation in this case is over. Judgment is deferred. The central government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) should file the documents related to this case,' they said.
  • Accordingly, affidavits were filed by the Central Government and the Reserve Bank of India. After all the arguments in the court were over, the Supreme Court had announced that the verdict in this case would be given on January 2.
  • Accordingly, the Supreme Court has given its judgment in the currency devaluation case today (January 2). In this, the four judges of the session ruled that the demonetization process will go ahead.
  • In their judgement, they said, "The central government has taken this step after proper deliberation. Similarly, it has taken the step of demonetizing only a certain amount without demonetizing all the money.
  • 52 days time to exchange the notes was reasonable. The central government has full power to carry out economic activity. It can be observed that the central government has also consulted the Reserve Bank in this regard.
  • Therefore, the demonetisation decision can no longer be reversed. We dismiss all the petitions filed against it. The currency devaluation will proceed".
  • Judge P.V. Only Nagaratna ruled against the central government. "It is wrong to demonetize 1000 and 500 rupee notes through a single decree. If the central government had thought that the demonetization should be done secretly, could it have been done through an ordinance? It is not acceptable to take such a drastic step without resorting to the parliament," he said.
