The government has told the supreme court that it is extending the deadline for mandatory linking of the government services with Aadhaar till March 31, 2018. 

However, news agencies reported, the extension is meant for those who haven't enrolled for Aadhaar yet. The government will issue a notification on Friday in this regard. 
 
Attorney general KK Venugopal informed the apex court that the deadline for linking of mobile numbers with Aadhaar remains February 6, as per the court’s order. The AG said that the government appointed expert committee on data protection will submit its report by February. 
 
The three judge bench headed by chief justice of India Dipak Misra said that it would constitute a constitution bench to hear petitions resisting mandatory Aadhaar linkage.
 
On November 3, the SC had asked the banks and the telecom service providers (TSP) to specify a deadline in their messages for linking accounts with Aadhaar. The apex court clubbed four new petitions related to Aadhaar with the existing petitions and these petitions will be taken up by a constitutional bench of the supreme court by the end of November.
