SC to hear plea for interim relief on mandatory linking of Aadhaar

Last date for mandatory linking Aadhaar to avail services extended

The deadline for linking bank accounts and financial services with Aadhaar was December 31, 2017. Supreme Court lawyer Shyam Divan said that the deadline was going to expire and the petitioners should be heard for an interim relief.

"That Aadhaar Act being in force, all notifications for requiring Aadhaar for various welfare programmes, verifying bank account, PAN card and SIM card with Aadhaar stand valid and lawful", it said in a statement.

Attorney General KK Venugopal told a bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, that 6th February will, however, remain the deadline for linking Aadhaar for availing uninterrupted mobile services as it had been mandated by the apex court.

The Centre had made Aadhaar mandatory to avail various welfare schemes including PDS.

The deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar to various government schemes will be extended till March 31 next year, the centre has told the Supreme Court today.

The Central government has previously made Aadhaar card mandatory for carrying out nearly all the legal tasks in the country. It is also mandatory to link PAN Card with Aadhaar card.

There are also a number of other benefits of linking your mobile phone number with your Aadhaar. On June 1, 2017, PML Rules have been amended to make Aadhaar mandatory for linking all bank accounts, insurance, pension, mutual funds and DMAT accounts.

The Apex Court has upheld the linkage of Aadhaar with PAN in the case of Binoy Viswam vs Union of India which mandates Aadhaar for income tax returns and PAN. The deadline to link Aadhaar card to mobile connection is fixed to February 2018.

On November 26, the top court had said that it would hear the petitions after its constitution bench concludes hearing the Delhi-Centre governance dispute.
