SC passes order on Aadhaar linking; extends deadline

March 13, 2018

The Supreme Court (SC) has indefinitely extended the deadline of March 31, 2018 to link Aadhaar with bank accounts and mobile phones.

According to the SC, the extension will remain in force till the five-judge bench passes its judgment on petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Aadhaar.

Earlier, the five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra had said it may not be possible to resolve the batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act by March 31, 2018. The bench had also stated that since the matter would have implications on financial institutions, a last moment extension would create serious compliance issues.

Further, the apex court said that the government cannot insist for mandatory Aadhaar even for issuance of Tatkal passport. On December 15, 2017 the SC extended the deadline for linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts and mobile phones to March 31, 2018.
