Various High Courts have dismissed petitions filed against demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. This comes ahead of the Supreme Court likely hearing on November 15 a plea challenging the government decision to withdraw 500 and 1000 rupee notes in its crackdown on blackmoney, corruption and counterfeit currency. The Centre has already filed a caveat in the apex court that it be heard if the court entertains any petition on demonetisation. Madurai bench of Chennai High Court, Allahabad High Court and Bangalore High Court dismissed petitions after hearing the argument on merit, officials said.

The Madurai bench had dismissed the petition on Thursday. The Bangalore HC has made certain strong observation saying that effort of the Government in nation building should not be defeated in any manner. While passing the order on dismissing the writ petition the High Courts have upheld the government’s decision after hearing the argument on merit, they said.

        Why Congressi, AAPxxrd, TMC, SP, BSP, Leftists and other pseudo seculars are objecting to this government decision to ban 500 and 1000 rupees notes? They are all corrupt parties and these politicians are trying to protect the corrupts. Modi decision to surprise the corrupt was right one and it has become very visible how chors are burning and shredding their ill gotten money. It will make Indian proud when they do not have to bribe any body for any job. People must have patient and should not make short term inconvenience as a big issue. The corrupt and tax avoiders must be punished. The terrorism funding must be eliminated. India will be shinning if we all support the government and fight corruption.

          do not mischarecterize the situations by terming it as inconvenience. Words such as agony, anguish, despair, mayhem,nightmare etc should be used to describe what the general public sans the IT crowd with electronic money is going through

            When 86% of our currently (500/1000 notes) in circulation has fake currency from across the border inconvenience one has to encounter the inconveniences. Those who have withdrawn from their banks and provide proof of its drawal have no problems. Even today what is the guarantee every individual will not exchange invalid notes against his several ID from different banks?
