Centre willing to extend deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar till 31 March

Centre likely to extend deadline to link Aadhaar to March 31, with a rider

According to the notification given on May 11, 2017, these services are mandatory to link with Aadhaar before their deadline. The Supreme Court now 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. Aadhaar card has to be linked to PAN card on or before December 31, 2017, otherwise, the PAN card will be blocked.

"There will be a time when, once Supreme Court clears it, we would like to give a date by which all have to link with Aadhaar and remaining will be cancelled".

UIDAI, the authority which issues Aadhaar, said today that the deadlines for verifying bank accounts, PAN cards and mobile SIM cards with the biometric ID stand "valid and lawful", and there is no change in them. The users have to get the Aadhaar card linked to their bank accounts and PAN card by December 31.

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

Many citizens can have a sigh of relief as the Government on Thursday told the Supreme Court that it will extend the deadline for linking Aadhaar with bank accounts, mobile numbers and other services.

Mutual funds are also mandatory for the individual to link with Aadhaar card before December, 31 as the deadline. The deadline to link Aadhaar card to mobile connection is fixed to February 2018.

The Apex Court has upheld the linkage of Aadhaar with PAN in the case of Binoy Viswam vs Union of India which mandates Aadhaar for income tax returns and PAN.

The apex court on 30 October had said that a Constitution Bench would commence hearing on the clutch of petitions against Aadhaar scheme from the last week of November.
