New Delhi, Nov.12 With the Supreme Court set to hear a plea challenging the ban on Rs. 500 and 1,000 notes on November 15, another petition has been filed against Centre's move on the same issue.

Tamil Nadu-based advocate Muthu Kumar has filed a petition challenging the Centre's order of banning Rs. 500 and 1000 notes.


A similar petition had been filed in the Bombay High Court as well in which the petitioner said that this decision has caused huge inconvenience to the public.

It may be recalled that after the petition was filed in the SC, the Centre had filed a caveat seeking to be heard before any interim order was passed.

On November 15, the Centre too would make its submissions before the SC while the matter is being heard.

On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the government is scrapping with immediate effect the existing currency denominations of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 to combat black money, corruption and terror-financing.
