New Delhi  -  The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notice to the petitioners who had approached various courts challenging the government's demonetisation move.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur, however, declined to stay the proceedings, for now, as it directed the next hearing of the matter on December 2.

The Centre had approached the apex court seeking transfer of the cases, contending that proceedings in various courts were creating difficulties.
