Dec 07 2017 by Desiree Burns
The new deadline will be March 31 instead of December 31, and a notification for this will be issued tomorrow, the court was told.
"UIDAI has clarified on a video circulated purportedly out of context of a lady lawyer on WhatsApp, Twitter and Social Media and said that the video refers to an order passed by the Supreme Court on August 11, 2015 when the court had restricted use of Aadhaar to only few programs", the statement said. Our objective is, all duplicate PANs should be eliminated which are not linked to Aadhaar card.
Last month, the government had told the court, which is hearing petitions against making Aadhaar linking to bank accounts, mobile phone numbers and others mandatory, that it is willing to extend the deadline toMarch 31, 2018. Aadhaar centres have been opened in banks, which makes it easy for the customers. The extension would, in all likelihood, include the mandatory linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts.
The Centre on Thursday informed Supreme Court that deadline to link Aadhaar Card with various schemes will be extended till March 31, 2018.
