SC questions Centre for making Aadhaar mandatory for PAN cards

Aadhaar SC questions Centre for making Aadhaar mandatory, says how could govt do this when court passed order terming it optional
Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 19:36

Last month, the SC said that the government could make Aadhaar mandatory for getting passports, opening bank accounts or getting mobile connections.

A bench of Justice AK Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan said that the court will examine the constitutional validity of the central government's decision to link the Aadhaar card with the PAN card. "To receive benefits due to citizens, aadhaar card won't be mandatory".

The Supreme Court on Friday questioned the government on its move to make the Aadhaar Card mandatory for several government-funded schemes and other services.

USS Carl Vinson Wasn't Sailing to Deter N. Korea as Announced
The Trump White House either lied about the aircraft carrier, or were lied to, and didn't care enough to check on the truth. While North Korea did end up test-firing a missile on Sunday, the projectile exploded nearly immediately after launch.

The contention here is of reading the earlier order. The main matter in Aadhaar is pending on the question of the right to privacy.

The AG said that fake PAN cards were being used to divert finds to shell companies to justify the Centre's move to make Aadhaar cards compulsory for PAN cards.

Appearing on behalf of the Centre, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi contended that people were giving details of PAN cards that had been obtained by producing fake documents.

This money was to be split between three groups, including the Iraqi militia group Keta'eb Hezbollah. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

The top court said it will decide on whether Aadhaar card can be made mandatory, for filing of Income Tax (I-T) returns, next week.

"The answer is this that for giving benefits of welfare schemes, it (Aadhaar) can not be pressed".

But among those things, the SC did not include getting PAN cards or getting welfare benefits. "They (government and its agencies) can not be stopped from seeking Aadhaar for non-benefit schemes like opening of bank accounts", a bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar had said.
