The Delhi High Court has reserved its verdict on Tuesday on a petition by Delhi lawyer and BJP leader Ashwini Upadhyay. Ashwini Upadhyay, in his petition, challenged the notification of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and State Bank of India (SBI), which said that people can exchange ₹ 2000 notes without any identification or proof.
Ashwini Upadhyay had said in his petition that he is not challenging the entire notification of RBI, but his objection is only to the part without changing the identity note. He termed it as arbitrary, irrational and liable to be quashed.
