 A five judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court in its interim ruling on Friday has fixed the deadline for linking Aadhaar with services including mobile numbers as March 31, 2018.  

This excludes opening up of new bank accounts for those already having  Aadhaar. For those who don't have Aadhaar, Aadhaar enrolment ID will suffice.  
 
While hearing the petitioners demanding a stay order on mandatory Aadhaar linkage yesterday, the SC bench, comprising chief justice of India Deepak Misra, justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, had said that all petitions related to Aadhaar will be heard from January 13. 
 
On Friday, the bench cited court's earlier judgement on the right to privacy to indicate the urgency in resolving the Aadhaar cases.     
 
The ministry of finance in a notification on December 12 had withdrawn the December 31 deadline for linking Aadhaar with bank account, under the prevention of money laundering act.   
 
 
On December 13, the ministry issued another notification, extending the deadline for Aadhaar linkage with bank accounts as March 31.
