Aadhaar Linking Deadline for Bank Accounts & Mobile Phones Extended! Supreme Court Extends Last Date Indefinitely

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is a statutory authority established under the provisions of the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016 ("Aadhaar Act 2016") on 12 July 2016 by the Government of India, under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).

"The government can not insist on mandatory Aadhaar", said the five-judge Constitution Bench headed by the Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra.

The deadline has been extended until the disposal of Aadhaar case in the Supreme Court. The earlier deadline to link Aadhaar was March 31, 2018.

Aadhaar law, the Bench said, "insofar as new bank accounts are concerned, the Bench extended the deadline till March 31, subject to the submission of the details in regard to the filing of an application for an Aadhaar card and the furnishing of the application number to the account opening bank". "Except for giving subsidy, Aadhaar linking can not be mandated by the government." the Supreme Court said. However, the apex court said that since the case was in court, the government can not push for the linking till the final verdict is out.

However, the deadline for subsidies and government programs remains March 31.

"Mr. K.K. Venugopal, learned Attorney General for India submitted that this Court may think of extending the interim order". The designated bank branches should cater to people for Aadhaar enrollment and update, even if they do not have an account with that particular branch.
