UIDAI Aadhaar

The Supreme Court on Wednesday declared government’s Aadhaar scheme as Constitutionally valid and also struck down Section 57 of Aadhaar Act permitting private entities to avail Aadhaar data. “Robust data protection regime has to be brought in place as early as possible,” Justice Sikri said while reading out the majority judgement.

The court said that the Aadhaar authentication data cannot be stored for more than six months.

WHAT NEEDS AADHAAR LINKING:
1) It is mandatory to link PAN card with Aadhaar
2) Aadhaar is a must for filing income tax returns
3) Aadhaar is necessary for availing welfare schemes and subsidies given by the government

Not Required
Aadhaar not mandatory for opening of bank account
No mobile company can demand “Aadhaar card”
Aadhaar need not be made compulsory for school admissions
CBSE, NEET, UGC cannot make Aadhaar mandatory
Telecom service providers can’t seek linking of Aadhaar

As of today telecom operators, banks, schools etc have not provided any facility for customers to unlink their aadhaar card. Hopefully this situation will change soon.
