SC refuses to stay linking of Aadhaar with mobile
The Supreme Court has refused to pass an interim order staying the linking of Aadhaar with mobile numbers and bank accounts. The Court said that it would not interfere as the matter is seized off by a Constitution Bench.
The court however pulled up banks and mobile companies for creating panic by sending customers messages saying that their accounts would be deactivated if they don't link them with Aaadhaar.
The Centre however denied that such messages were being sent out. I don't want to say but I also get messages," said Justice AK Sikri.
Stop scaring the people and avoid this, the Supreme Court said. The SC on Friday also asked the Centre to direct companies to mention in their text messages, the last date for linking their mobile numbers and bank accounts with Aadhaar.
