A division bench of the Hyderabad High Court on Monday refused to hear a case challenging the demonetisation of `500 and `1,000 currency notes by the Union of India.
Earlier, petitioner’s counsel PV Krishnaiah contended that the impugned notification has been issued all of a sudden without giving sufficient time to make alternate arrangements by the people.
As such the people including the petitioner are put through so much inconvenience in dealing with day to day financial affairs.On Monday, Additional Solicitor General of India, Natarajan made a mention before the bench comprising ACJ Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice A Shankar Narayana with a plea to hear the petition filed by K Srinivas, an advocate of the city, challenging the Centre’s decision on currency notes. 
Similar petitions were filed in various high courts of the country where they were dismissed. A petition was also filed before the Supreme Court and will come up for hearing on Tuesday. He urged the Court to hear the above petition and issue orders. Reacting to these submissions, Justice Ranganathan asked why the Centre was making a mention on hearing the matter before this court?
“This court is not inclined to hear the matter out of turn. If this court is satisfied that we have to interfere in this matter, then we will accommodate you (Government of India) time on the next date. This court should be satisfied that the action of the Central government needs our interference, then we will definitely intervene”, the ACJ observed. 
The bench adjourned the matter to November 16.
