Supreme Court to decide validity of linking Aadhaar with Pan card

SC to hear triple talaq cases from May 11
Respond on contempt notice: Supreme Court to Karnan

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today took a decision to examine the constitutional validity of the central government’s decision to link the Aadhaar card with the Pan card.

A bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan took the decision even as Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi stoutly defended the government.

Senior counsel Shyam Divan and Arvind Datar, appearing for the petitioners, including a former judge of Karnataka High Court, said it was extremely difficult to follow the rule as many people did not have an Aadhaar card. There was also constant mismatch of individual details in the two identity cards.
