A Constitution Bench led by Justice S. Abdul Nazeer will hear on Wednesday a reference to test the legality of a November 8, 2016 notification on the demonetisation of ₹500 and ₹1,000 currency notes and the government’s implementation of the policy. The questions of law include whether the RBI notification and the “limited withdrawal” of one’s own money were violations of Articles 14 (right to equality), 19 (freedom of speech, trade, occupation, etc.), 21 (fundamental right to protection of life) and 300A (right to property) of the Constitution.
