Earlier, the court had earlier said that it would commence the hearing on the batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Aadhaar in the last week of November. Aadhaar will also be made mandatory to open bank account or to secure loans.

The Supreme Court had yesterday made it clear that banks and telecom service providers will have to indicate the last date of linking bank accounts and mobile numbers with Aadhaar in their communications with customers.

Social service schemes: The 135 Total social service scheme including MNREGA, LPG, Ration Card and the beneficiaries should link their Aadhaar Card number on or before December 31, 2017.
