December 07, 2017: In a recent development, the Central Government has told the Supreme Court today that it is willing to extend the deadline to link Aadhaar card with bank accounts and various government services will be pushed back from December 31, 2017 to March 31, 2018.



It may be stated that the extension will apply only to those who do not have the Unique Identification Number yet.


The government will issue notification for the extension tomorrow, Attorney General KK Venugopal, who is representing the Centre, told the court. But the deadline for Aadhaar linking to cellphone numbers, February 6, cannot be extended, since the date has been named by the top court, he further stated.


The petitioners, who had appealed against making the linking of Aadhaar mandatory, have objected to the conditional extension of deadline.  


Reportedly, the petitioners had asked the Supreme Court to stop the Centre from making the linking of Aadhaar mandatory for bank accounts and mobile phone numbers, contending that it violates people's right to privacy and can be misused. Their petition also challenges the validity of Aadhaar, which contains biometric details like finger prints and iris scans.  


As per reports the Supreme Court will be setting up a five-judge Constitution Bench next week to hear several pleas seeking an interim stay on the Centre's decision of mandatory linking of Aadhaar.
