New Delhi: The Supreme Court has pulled up the central govt for announcing December 30 last year as the deadline for depositing demonetised notes. The apex court has given the govt and the Reserve Bank of India two weeks time to reply to its concern.

Stating that the government could not take away someone's money 'for no fault of his/her', the apex court said, "You can't be allowed to deprive a person of his money if he couldn't deposit it due to genuine problems. There will be a serious problem if you don't look into it. Give a window to a genuine problem. What if someone is terminally ill and couldn't deposit the money? Don't force us to pass a three-line order and quash your December 30 notification."

The government, on its part, has agreed to examine if a window can be opened for those who couldn't deposit old currency due to serious problems.
