Constitution Bench to hear Aadhaar Petitions

New Delhi, October 30: The Supreme Court on Monday said a five-judge constitution bench will hear a batch of petitions challenging the validity of the Aadhaar law on charges of being intrusive and violating the right to privacy.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said the hearing will take place in the last week of November.

The court said this after Attorney General K.K. Venugopal told the bench that the Centre had filed a detailed affidavit refuting all the allegations on expanding the area under Aadhaar linkage.

Asking the court not to issue any further interim orders, Venugopal said the government had issued more than 100 orders and notifications to address the glitches in the implementation of Aadhaar.

Urging the court to maintain status quo, the Attorney General urged the bench that no interim order should be passed.(IANS)
