The Supreme Court said that it may pass some orders on Friday on a plea seeking that demonetised Rs 500 currency notes be allowed to be used for some more time at places like hospitals and petrol pumps.

“We will see whether we can pass some orders today,” a bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice D Y Chandrachud said when senior advocate Kapil Sibal sought an interim order on the issue.


Sibal said that the use of demonetised Rs 500 notes has come to an end and some order needed to be passed.

Yesterday, the court had said that the Centre should adhere to its notification that allowed withdrawal of Rs 24,000 per week from bank accounts after demonetisation of high-value currency notes.
