Petition was filed under Article 226 of the Constitution of India praying for the issue of a Writ of Mandamus to direct the State Union of India Rep. by its Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Prime Minister's Office to print the photo of National Leader Nethaji Subash Chandra Bose in the Indian Currencies to satisfy the voices of people.
The Bench of Justice M. M. Sundresh observed,
“We need not say anything on the greatness of Nethaji, apart from the contribution made, which starts from his resignation from the coveted post to the creation of Indian National Army. His contribution towards the Indian Freedom movement is unparallel………. History of Nation will have to be told and retold again and again for the posterity to remember. Thus, keeping in view of the judicial constraint, we are not in a position to accede to the request made by the petitioner.”
The writ petition stands disposed of accordingly. No costs.
