New Delhi, March 13: The Aadhar deadline has been extended. SC indefinitely extends March 31 deadline for mandatory Aadhaar linking,
It was earlier hinted that the deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar to avail various services and welfare schemes run by the government may be further extended beyond March 31. The Centre had indicated this in the Supreme Court.
The Centre had said that since some more time would be needed to conclude the prolonged hearing in the Aadhaar case, the government may extend the deadline from March 31.
A five-judge Constitution bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan agreed with the contention of Attorney General K K Venugopal.
