Aadhaar linking deadline will be extended to March 31, Centre tells SC

The extension will only be given to those who don't have Aadhaar card as yet.

However, Attorney General K K Venugopal said that the last date for linking Aadhaar for mobile services will remain February 6 next year in pursuance of a judicial order.

The Attorney General had told the court that no coercive action would be taken against those who do not have the Aadhaar card but are willing to enrol for.

The top court did not pass any interim order on the pleas challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act as well as linking of 12-digit unique biometric identification number with bank accounts and mobile numbers. But after that the PAN, if it is not linked, will be cancelled.

The cancellation will weed out all duplicate PANs and make benami transactions void, the official said.
