Race against time for the RBI litigant

The RTI activist and litigant in the Bombay High Court, Manoranjan Roy who has petitioned for clarity on the supply and circulation of currency notes of different denominations from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is now facing a race against time to raise a fund of Rs. 1 lakh as ordered by the honourable court for purpose of proceeding with the hearing of the case with a fresh counsel in place. The High Court had allotted him two weeks time from the date of the oral order (8th July 2016) to raise the funds. The next date of hearing for this case is 29th of July. The deadline for the deposition of Rs. 1 lakh is 22nd July. The judge has asked for a cash deposit. However, the judge is yet to load the order which disables Manoranjan from appealing against the order or challenging it in a higher court. You might recall that this hearing was highlighted in the previous article on this site. However, we have added facts for purpose of notifying our readers about the deadline against which Manoranjan is working.
