Which is today’s breaking News.
The Aadhaar Act 2016 is up for constitutional test
in the Supreme Court
on 26th September 2018.
The five-Judge Constitution bench

regarding the Constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act, 2016
On whether the Act violates Fundamental Right of
Privacy or not.
Also, allocation of welfare schemes
based on Aadhaar card
and for high state monitoring of State mandate
such as biometric information
cyber security concern
and allocation of welfare schemes etc. have been challenged.
The Aadhaar bill was introduced
in the Parliament as a money bill..
The law seeks to provide statutory support to every Indian resident
in the scheme of issuing
unique identification number which enables
targeted (direct) distribution of subsidies
services and other benefits
under welfare schemes.
Aadhaar card is a tool
by which each individual is handed
a unique identification number
So that no person can use any
of the subsidies that the person receives.
Among the main arguments by the government
was that Aadhaar would help weed out ghost
beneficiaries of welfare schemes in future.
Attorney General K.K. Venugopal in a note presented by him stated that
millions of Indian residents
are entitled to Right to food
right to livelihood
right to live a safe life.
on the basis of Aadhaar.
Now let’s talk on the verdict which is out today
Under the chairmanship of Chief Justice of India Deepak Mishra
the five Judicial Constitution Bench
Justice AK Sikri, AM Khanvilar
D.Y. Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan were included.
In May 2018, they heard the arguments
raised in the last seven years
on various issues against Aadhaar…
The Supreme Court saw these petitions
and found that the authentication of the Aadhaar
the government has sufficient defence mechanism.
Which will enable to keep other people’s information
Justice Sikri also concludes that
the authentication data should not be
kept more than 6 months.
Therefore, the current rule allows
data to be stored for up to 5 years…
A bench was held for hearing of former High Court Judge KS. Petaswamy’s
plea that is petitions
there were 31 petitions in the hearing. Until the court’s decision
the mandatory requirement of ‘Aadhaar’
in all the Central and State Governments schemes
were banned which included
Mobile SIM. However, the court
also said that that the government could not put pressure
on people to make ‘Aadhaar’ compulsory..
Section 57 of the Aadhar Act, 2016
states that the private body may demand
the Aadhaar data which has now been
declared unconstitutional. The Supreme Court has
also made changes in the law of Aadhaar
that prevented persons
from doing Matters to be recorded under the Aadhaar Act.
Earlier, only UIDAI and its officers
could file cases but now
anyone can file a case in court.
