A Constitution Bench, drove by Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu, had said that the utilization of the Aadhaar card was absolutely deliberate and not compulsory. With this, the Supreme Court changed an August 11, 2015 request issued by its three-judge Bench limiting Aadhaar use to just PDS and LPG (cooking gas) circulation.
The interim order had come after senior advocates Shyam Divan and Gopal Subramanium said the Aadhaar plan was neither sponsored by law nor regulatory pronouncement.
“You have no archive of expert, either from Parliament or authoritative choice, to gather fingerprints of the citizenry,” Mr. Divan had contended that day for the solicitors.
The court had particularly asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, showing up for the UIDAI, to create an impression in open court that “you won’t demand till the matter is at long last chosen here or an enactment is presented in Parliament.”
“No individual will be denied benefits under any administration conspire for need of Aadhaar card,” the AG had insisted then.
