Aadhaar Linking Deadline Extended: 5 Developments So Far

Aadhaar Card

The Supreme Court of India on Tuesday has extended mandatory Aadhaar linking with bank accounts and mobile phones and passports indefinitely till the judgement is pronounced.

Aadhaar is a unique identification provided in form of a twelve-digit number which is based on the biometric and demographic data of a person. The other judges in the bench include Justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan.

The provision says that Centre or state governments may seek Aadhaar for establishing the identity of beneficiaries of their schemes. However, the deadline for subsidies, benefits will remain March 31.

However, Aadhaar will still be a must for social schemes and subsidies as under section 7 of the Aadhaar Act.

Besides the constitutional validity, the Modi government's move to introduce the law as a Money Bill has also been challenged. Once passed by the Lok Sabha, it is sent to Rajya Sabha.

He proceeded to submit that though the Bill was modified in the Rajya Sabha, the modifications were ignored in the Lok Sabha.

India launched Aadhaar in 2009 to restructure welfare payments, said UIDAI. At the time, the bench while rejecting the petition filed by Shyam Divan, indicated that all these concerns would be taken care of when it concludes the ongoing hearing on Aadhaar validity and passes its final verdict.

"Police verification of an individual is done after he or she is issued a Tatakal passport and for that objective Aadhaar is being taken by the concerned authorities". Senior advocate Arvind Datar, on behalf of Ms. Grover, said she was asked to come back with her Aadhaar number, which she did not possess, in case she wanted her passport. He also submitted that Aadhaar is being used only to expedite the process of issuance of a passport.

The bench had earlier said that since the matter would have implications on financial institutions like banks and stock exchange, it would create a huge problem of compliance if the deadline was extended at the last moment.

Today's ruling comes after the court started hearing the matter again on March 6 after a group had approached it in December opposing the mandatory linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts, phone numbers and other services.
