NEW DELHI, Nov 21 - The Delhi High Court today agreed to hear a plea against demonetisation, saying once the currency was invalidated then how could the government direct certain public utilities, including hospitals and petrol pumps, to accept old notes.
A bench of Justices BD Ahmed and Jayant Nath listed for hearing tomorrow the plea which also sought discontinuation of the new Rs 2,000 currency note, terming the move as �unconstitutional and bad in law�.
Petitioner Pooja Mahajan, running a designer showroom, mentioned the matter pleading urgency on the ground that she is being deprived of earning her livelihood and her fundamental rights are being infringed.
She also blamed the government for taking a dual stand, saying that on one hand it was encouraging people to deposit old notes in bank accounts and on the other wasn threatening them of prosecution for depositing over Rs 2.50 lakh. � PTI
