Earlier,the Supreme Court had said that the Aadhar card,being issued by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI,was not mandatory for availing any government services and nobody should be deprived of any such facilites for the want of the card.
It had asked the Centre not to issue it to illegal immigrants as it would legitimise their stay.
Centre had also told the court that the Aadhar card was optional and that it has not made it mandatory for the citizens.
The apex court had passed the earlier order while hearing a batch of pleas against decisions of some states to make Aadhar cards compulsory for a range of activities including salary,PF disbursals and marriage and property registrations.
The petitioners had contended that the scheme was complete infraction of Fundamental Rights under Articles 14 (right to equality) and 21 (right to life and liberty) and even as government claims it to be voluntary but it is not so.
