It has reiterated its position, stating that the Aadhaar card scheme is purely voluntary. The court pronounced an interim ruling on September 14 while responding to a petition filed by the All Bengal Minority Students Council.

The schemes include pre-matric, post-matric and merit-cum-means scholarships.
