Verdict on Demonetisation

January 3, 2023 Verdict on DeMon This refers to the report on the Supreme Court verdict on demonetization (The Hindu Business Line, January 3). As the 4-1 majority judgement didn't find any flaw in demonetization process and the court was convinced that GOI and RBI were in consultation about the proposal dating back six months prior to November 8, 2016 going by the nation's tradition of respecting judicial decisions, common man expects a closure of the debate on the subject except for academic and political purposes. Of course, the lessons learnt will help improve systems and procedures in policy initiatives affecting people across the country. Though former finance minister Chidambaram was selective in presenting facts as a lawyer, we can expect him to accept the reality of the situation as explained in the majority judgement. Of course, that doesn't stop the opposition from using the single judge dissenting note for political intercourse.
