New Delhi [India], Nov 11 (ANI): Miffed over inconvenience caused by the banning of high denomination notes, a Tamil Nadu based advocate on Friday approached the Supreme Court against the Centre's move.

The petitioner has sought one month extension of the government's order.

Matter likely to be heard on Tuesday.

Long queues, heavy jostling and chaos ensued in the nation capital yesterday as people thronged to banks to exchange notes. Queues extending to roads were seen outside the banks throughout the day.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement of the ban late on Tuesday night left people across the country rushing to ATMs and many complained that despite the government's order, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes were being rejected at petrol stations and toll booths.

However, retorting to complaints Finance Minister Arun Jaitley earlier this week said temporary hardship is no excuse to perpetuate a system where black money prospers. (ANI)
