Earlier, the deadline to link Aadhaar with mobile numbers had been extended to March 31, 2018 from the previous deadline of December 31, 2017. But in March, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in which linking of PAN, bank accounts and mobile phones would stand extended indefinitely till the verdict in the Aadhaar case.

However, the Aadhaar card is still mandatory for PAN linking as Aadhaar is needed for filing income tax returns.

Here is some of the highlight of Aadhaar Vedict –

  • Supreme Court allows the passage of Aadhaar as a money bill
  • Aadhaar is constitutionally fair and gives dignity to the marginalized.
  • Aadhaar not mandatory for obtaining a new SIM card, says SC.
  • Aadhaar need not be made compulsory for school admissions:SC
  • Right to privacy and the right of others need to be balanced: SC
  • Aadhaar authentication records not to be kept beyond 6 months: SC
  • Aadhaar means unique and it is better to be unique than being best: SC
  • There is a difference between Aadhaar card and identity: Justice Sikri
  • Aadhaar eliminates chance of duplication: SC
  • Aadhar collects minimum demographic and biometric data, says Supreme Court
  • Impossible to live in India if Aadhaar mandatory for every govt service: Justice Chandrachud
