Supreme Court extends Aadhaar linking deadline for all services indefinitely

Aadhaar Card Aadhaar Card
Bennie Garza | 13 March, 2018, 16:41

The Supreme Court on Tuesday indefinitely extended the March 31, 2018 deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar to bank accounts, mobile phones and tatkal passports until a five-judge constitution bench pronounces its verdict on the validity of the biometric authentication programme.

Aadhaar as an ID has been mandatory by the government for every Indian citizen to avail of various social welfare schemes and government services.

The Supreme Court has not extended the deadline for welfare schemes like LPG, MNREGA, and ration card, among others.

The current deadline for linking of bank accounts, mobile phone connections, and other services with Aadhaar was March 31 and this had been extended by the apex court on December 15 past year.

Previously, the last date stood at March 31. "We accept the same". His arguments revolved around the introduction of the Aadhaar Bill as a Money Bill. A Money Bill, unlike any other bill, can be passed by the Lok Sabha alone.

Petitioners opposed to the mandatory linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts, phone numbers and other services had sought an extension of the deadline for such linkage.

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

Attorney General KK Venugopal submitted that the directives of the Supreme Court are being properly complied with.

The court made it clear that the extension of the time limit beyond March 31, 2018 shall apply for Aadhar linkage, besides the schemes of the Ministries/ Departments of the Union government and all state governments in similar terms.
