Watch: How the SC’s Aadhaar verdict impacts the common man
The Supreme Court has upheld the Constitutional validity of the Aadhaar scheme but with some conditions. Hindustan Times’ Legal Editor Ashok Bagriya explains the impact of the apex court’s verdict on the common man. While you will still need your Aadhaar card for filing income tax returns, now you do not need to link your Aadhaar to your SIM card. Also, you would not need to submit Aadhaar details for school admissions and neither are they mandatory for UGC, NEET and CBSE examinations. Private companies also cannot ask for Aadhaar details for verification purposes.
