Last date for mandatory linking Aadhaar to avail services extended”

The extension will only be given to those who don't have Aadhaar card as yet.

However, the Attorney General K K Venugopal had said linking of Aadhaar with mobile services will only remain until 6 February next year in pursuance of the judicial order.

Dateline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar card, to avail services in the country, has been extended by the Centre till March 31, 2018.

The bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, said only the Constitution bench will pass an interim order in the matter.

The petitioners have moved the top court seeking a stay on the government making Aadhaar linkage mandatory for bank accounts, mobile numbers, saying it infringes upon an individual's right to privacy.

The apex court on 30 October had said that a Constitution Bench would commence hearing on the clutch of petitions against Aadhaar scheme from the last week of November. The official also added that once the new deadline will be crossed then the government might cancel all PANs that have not been linked.

At present, the deadline for linking the 10-digit alphanumeric PAN (Permanent Account Number), issued by the Income Tax Department, with Aadhaar is 31 December.

Attorney General K K Venugopal told a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that the Centre was willing to extend the deadline for linking of Aadhaar with various services and schemes from December 31 to March 31 next year.

The Supreme Court had yesterday made it clear that banks and telecom service providers will have to indicate the last date of linking bank accounts and mobile numbers with Aadhaar in their communications with customers.
