SC to pronounce order on mandatory linking of Aadhaar tomorrow

Aadhaar case: Apex court order tomorrow

Centre on Thursday said the deadline for linking Aadhaar with all schemes and services, including bank accounts, has been extended to March 31. The bench comprising five judges-Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, justices D.Y. Chandrachud, A.K. Sikri, A.M. Khanwilkar and Ashok Bhushan has been constituted.

The Supreme Court will on Friday pronounce its order on the plea for interim relief on a batch of petitions seeking stay of various Central and state government notifications mandating the linking of Aadhaar with various schemes including taking exam by the students, availing scholarship, cremation and treatment of HIV positive patients.

Since last few weeks, we all had witnessed the aggressiveness with which banks have been "asking" (or rather ordering?) their customers to link their bank accounts with Aadhaar before December 31st.

Banking Laws Altered To Extend Aadhaar-Bank A/c Linking Deadline!

Under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), Aadhaar, PAN and other official documents are required to be obtained by banks and financial institutions from anyone opening a bank account as well as for any financial transaction of Rs 50,000 and above. One of the counsel representing the petitioners had earlier said that final hearing on the main Aadhaar matter was necessary as the government "cannot compel" citizens to link their Aadhaar with either bank accounts or cell phone numbers.

"You may have a point on constitutionality, legality".

Venugopal said he may not be able to defend authorities like Uttar Pradesh and UGC as they are not parties here and notices have not been issued on those interim applications.

In a notification, the government has said that the deadline for linking of Aadhaar with a bank account to March 31 or 6 months from the date of commencement of the account.

Subramanium and other lawyers also said that the Aadhaar legislation can not take away the basis of the apex court orders that the scheme was voluntary.

A nine-bench constitutional bench of Supreme Court declared Right to Privacy as fundamental under article 21 of Indian constitution in August.
