However, the deadline for linking aadhaar for availing government subsidies, and benefits continues to be March 31.

"The government can not insist for mandatory Aadhaar even for issuance of Tatkal passport", the Supreme Court said.

The apex court is now in the process of hearing a clutch of petitions that challenge the validity of the Aadhaar scheme.

However, it is still mandatory to link your welfare schemes with Aadhaar to get benefits under Article 7 before the deadline.

On 7 March, the Supreme Court directed the CBSE not to make Aadhaar number mandatory for enrolment of students appearing in NEET 2018 and other all India exams.

"The government can not insist for mandatory Aadhaar even for issuance of Tatkal passport".

Further, the apex court extended the date for the completion of the linkage of Aadhaar and e-KYC process in respect of mobile phone subscribers till judgment is rendered.

The world's largest biometric database, India's Aadhaar system holds billions of users' sensitive and confidential details (including iris scans, fingerprints and a unique 12-digit number similar to Social Security Numbers in the US).

"We direct that the March 31, 2018, deadline for linking of Aadhaar with various services and welfare schemes stand extended till the matter is heard and judgement is pronounced by the constitution bench", the bench also comprising Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan said.

However, as reported by PTI, you may still have to provide your Aadhaar to avail of any government services and benefits like LPG and kerosene subsidies, and government scholarships.

On December 15 past year, the apex court had extended till March 31 the deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar with various services and welfare schemes.

The government had earlier told the Supreme Court that it may extend the deadline.

This order will come as an embarrassing blow for the government, which had given directions to banks and telecom operators to ensure linking of Aadhaar to crores of subscribers. A judgment in the case, therefore, is unlikely before the end of this month, the report said. This excluded opening up of new bank accounts for those already having Aadhaar.
