Constitution bench to decide all petitions against ‘Validity of Aadhaar’
In a bid to clear all confusions formed around the central government’s Aadhaar schemes, a five-member constitution bench is set to hear all petitions filed against the government policies related to the Aadhaar including the government’s move to link Aadhaar with the bank accounts and mobile phone numbers and the government’s decision to make Aadhaar mandatory to avail the benefits of social security schemes.
The decision to constitute a special ‘five-member constitution’ bench has been taken by the Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra.
The Attorney General of India, K K Venugopal, has informed the court that the government is willing to argue in the court.
There is no doubt in the fact that there are many falsehoods circulating in the society about the government policies related to the Aadhaar.
Many people who already owned an Aadhaar card have expressed serious concerns about the date or information security offered by those who collect the Aadhaar number or card for various purposes.
Anyway, recently, a nine-member constitution held that the Right to Privacy is an integral part of the fundamental rights.
The aforementioned historic judgment gives strength to those who firmly stand against the government move to increase the pentation of this scheme, which tampers with what the Right to Privacy upholds.
