Last date for mandatory linking Aadhaar to avail services extended

The court has agreed to hear petitions challenging Aadhaar next for interim relief.

The deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar to various government schemes will be extended till March 31 next year, the centre has told the Supreme Court today.

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. Recently, it was also reported that the mobile connections not linked to Aadhaar card will get deactivated. Next thing to do is, to enter your 12 digit Aadhaar card number, then verify captcha and then click on "Link Aadhaar" button. So far, private citizens run the risk of being locked out of access to their own bank accounts if they do not link them with Aadhaar by December 31.

However, the last date for linking Aadhaar for mobile services will remain February 6 as per the Supreme Court order, the Attorney General said.


UIDAI said the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016 was passed by the Parliament on March 16, 2016 and notified in the Gazette of India on March 26, 2016. Aadhaar centres have been opened in banks, which makes it easy for the customers.

The Central government has previously made Aadhaar card mandatory for carrying out nearly all the legal tasks in the country. The new deadline will be March 31 instead of December 31, and a notification for this will be issued tomorrow, the court was told.

As the case is pending in the Supreme Court, the government is not enforcing the provision, the official said.
