Aadhaar deadline extended by Supreme Court till final verdict on constitutional validity

A visitor gives a thumb impression to withdraw money from his bank account with his Aadhaar card in Hyderabad

The Supreme Court extended on Tuesday the March 31 deadline to link Aadhaar with various services till a constitution bench hearing the matter delivers a judgment.

The Centre said that since some more time would be needed to conclude the prolonged hearing in the Aadhaar case, the government may extend the deadline from March 31.

The deadline has been extended until the disposal of Aadhaar case in the Supreme Court.

The government had earlier told the Supreme Court that it might consider extending the March 31 deadline for linking Aadhaar.

Can Europe save the Iran nuclear deal?
Trump told Netanyahu that if the changes are not made, he will walk away from the accord, Israeli officials told the website. If no consensus is reached by that date, Trump is expected to withdraw the US from the deal.

A five-judge Constitution bench - comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan - is now hearing the petitioners in the case following which the government will respond.

The court has said that mandatory Aadhaar linking with bank accounts and mobile phones will stand extended indefinitely till then. Therefore, the judgment in the case is unlikely before the end of this month.

The petitions filed in the top court contend that making Aadhaar linking mandatory for welfare schemes and financial transactions, like getting a loan or filing taxes, violates the constitutional right to privacy.
