  • Deadline to link Aadhaar card extended till 2018

"There can not be a stay on the Aadhaar scheme which has gone on for years", Venugopal had argued, adding that the current deadline of December 31 will be extended till March 31 next year and a notification to this effect may be issued on Saturday.

The government, however, made it clear that 6 February next year would remain the deadline for linking Aadhaar for availing uninterrupted mobile services as it had been mandated by the apex court.

The Central Government today extended the deadline for mandatory linking of PAN with the Aadhaar by three months to March 31, 2018.

A five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court is likely to be set up next week to hear these petitions which are now being heard by a three-judge Bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra and comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and AM Khanwilkar. This, he said, was on account of the matter being pending with the court.




Currently, the 12-digit number has to be added to bank accounts, PAN cards, government services and cellphone services. Previously, the deadline was until December 31, 2017.

Linking of Aadhaar to PAN was made mandatory in the Finance Bill 2017-18. He had said such people would not be denied the benefits of social welfare schemes till March 31. The Aadhaar mandates for welfare schemes were issued by the Modi government with an aim to stop pilferage of fodgrain subsidy money. The Bench, also comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, further stated that the same Bench will pass necessary orders on the interim applications as well. On June 1, 2017, PML Rules have been amended to make Aadhaar mandatory for linking all bank accounts, insurance, pension, mutual funds and DMAT accounts.

If your data is different than what is mentioned in the PAN then Aadhaar linkage may not be successful.
