No SC stay on Aadhaar linking to services: UIDAI

No SC stay on Aadhaar linking to services: UIDAI

This extension will include 139 services. Presently, the Aadhaar card number has to be linked to bank accounts, PAN cards, government services and cellphone services. "Our case is those who have Aadhaar must also be allowed not to link", said Udayaditya Banerjee, the advocate representing the petitioner.

Some petitioners in the top court have termed the linking of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) number with bank accounts and mobile numbers as "illegal and unconstitutional".

According to the government, the March 31 deadline for Aadhaar linkage will only apply to those who are yet to register for their unique Aadhaar identification.

The Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra informed the petitioners that a five judge Bench had been set up to hear the matter and it is likely to sit next week to decide on whether an interim stay on the linking be issued or not.

John Katko, an original cosponsor of the concealed-carry gun bill, compared it to an individual who has a driver's license. Two New Jersey Republicans- Chris Smith of the 4th District and Leonard Lance of the 7th District-voted against the bill.

Attorney General K K Venugopal, however, said the last date for linking Aadhaar to mobile services will remain February 6, 2018 in pursuance of a judicial order. He had said such people would not be denied the benefits of social welfare schemes till 31 March.

The linking of Aadhaar with bank account and PAN was made mandatory by the Government of India to vent out all the black money and bring unaccounted capital to the front.

The bench, also comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, said the matter would be placed before a Constitutional Bench next week to consider passing an interim direction. This deadline is only applicable for the people who don't have an Aadhaar card and are willing to enrol for it. The judgment would have an important bearing on the Aadhaar hearing as one of the grounds of challenge is that the use of biometric information of an individual encroaches upon the privacy of an individual.
