Aadhaar linking deadline will be extended to March 31, 2018

Aadhaar linking deadline will be extended to March 31, 2018

The government told the Supreme Court on Thursday that it will extend deadline till March 31 next year to link aadhaar card for availing various services and benefits of government schemes.

The Central government has previously made Aadhaar card mandatory for carrying out nearly all the legal tasks in the country.

A constitution bench will be setup by next week to hear the interim pleas demanding stay on Centre's order of mandatory linking of Aadhaar Cards with the various schemes.

Senior advocate Shyam Divan, appearing for those who are opposed to Aadhaar scheme told the bench, also comprising justices A. M. Khanwilkar and D. Y. Chandrachud, that the central government should give an undertaking that no coercive steps would be taken against those fail to link their Aadhaar with various services.

The government had in August extended by four months the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar till December 31, pending the Supreme Court verdict. Aadhaar will also be made mandatory to open bank account or to secure loans.

Earlier, the court had earlier said that it would commence the hearing on the batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Aadhaar in the last week of November.

The Centre had made Aadhaar mandatory to avail various welfare schemes including PDS.

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. A bench headed by CJI Deepak Misra had said in October that a constitution bench would be set up for Aadhaar-related grievances. Our objective is, all duplicate PANs should be eliminated which are not linked to Aadhaar card.
