NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court would hear on October 30 a
plea filed by the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government+
against the Centre’s move to make Aadhaar mandatory for availing the benefits of various social welfare schemes.

The plea is listed for hearing before a bench comprising Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan.

Senior advocate and member of parliament Kalyan Banerjee said the petition was filed earlier and would come up for hearing before the bench on October 30.

He said that West Bengal government has challenged the provision which said that without Aadhaar, the benefits of social welfare schemes would not be extended.

On October 25, the Centre had told the top court that
the deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar to avail benefits+
of various government schemes has been extended till March 31 next year for those who do not have the 12-digit biometric identification number.

Mamata takes Aadhaar aim, targets BJP ouster

West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday sought to ride public disenchantment with three big-bang initiatives of the Narendra Modi government — demonetisation, GST and its directive to mandatorily link Aadhaar with phone numbers — to counter BJP, which has taken the moral high ground in the state by referring to “Trinamool links with Saradha and Narada” and its ministers facing CBI probe.

Attorney General K K Venugopal had told a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that the deadline extension from December end this year till March 31, 2018, would apply only to those who do not have Aadhaar and are willing to enrol for it.

However, Venugopal had told the bench that he would take instructions on certain issues on Aadhaar after which the court had asked him to mention the matter again on October 30.

Several petitions, challenging the Centre’s move to make Aadhaar mandatory for welfare schemes and
notifications to link it with mobile numbers and bank accounts+
, are pending in the apex court.
