GN Bureau | January 15, 2013



The Punjab and Haryana High Court on January 14, issued notices to the centre and UT Administration on a petition filed against the Aadhar, according to a report by Times of India, Chandigarh.

According to the report, the petition has been filed by Sanjiv Pandey and was heard by a division bench which comprised of Chief Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain. The notices have been issued for March 4, says the report.

The petitioner, Pandy, has sought the cancellation of the executive order of the Deputy Commissioner, UT Administration which was dated December 5, 2012 and which made the UID card mandatory for registration of vehicles and for driving licences.

Gagan Geet Kaur, the petitioner’s counsel  submitted that UID cards are unconstitutional and have no legal sanctity as the National Identification Authority of India Bill - 2010 is pending in Parliament. He also said that the registration of UID cards is voluntary as stated by the website and thus, it cannot be made mandatory to access public services.

He also informed that UID cards were given more importance for public service than the other proofs of identity like voter ID cards and passports.
