The Supreme Court today upheld the demonetisation of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes. Justice BV Nagarathna dissented as the other four judges of the five-judge bench ruled in favor of the Centre’s 2016 exercise.
Here are the top 5 Supreme Court quotes:
It is not relevant whether the objective is achieved or not.
We assumed that there was a reasonable relationship to achieving the goal.
The decision-making process cannot be blamed just because the proposal came from the Centre.
Demonetization Exercise cannot be stopped on the basis of proportionality.
The time limit of 52 days for exchange of notes cannot be said to be unreasonable.
