Aadhaar‏/Facebook

On June 10, the Supreme Court had ruled that from July 1 onward, every person eligible to obtain Aadhaar card must quote their Aadhaar number or their Aadhaar Enrolment ID number for filing of Income Tax Returns as well as for applications for Permanent Account Number (PAN).

The petition will be primarily whether the scheme that requires the parting of biometric details of citizens to access welfare and benefits, is a violation of their right.

The scheme touched the lives of millions of people and its validity required immediate adjudication by an appropriate larger Bench, said Mr. Venugopal.

United Kingdom court rehears Charlie Gard case in light of new evidence
British and European courts upheld rulings that the infant's life support should be ended to let him die with dignity. His parents want him to undergo a trial therapy in America, but the doctors say it is experimental and wouldn't work.

A bench, headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar, said this as it was hearing three separate petitions challenging Centre's notification making Aadhaar mandatory for various public welfare schemes.

The court, in October 2015, referred the case for hearing before a Constitution Bench, but despite several reminders from the petitioners, it was pending.

The Aadhaar scheme was challenged when it had been made mandatory under an executive order.

U.S. guard Payton Pritchard (Oregon/West Linn, Ore.) was selected to the five-member All-Tournament team, joining Canada's R.J. The North American outfit then extended their advantage in the second stanza to ensure they reached half-time 51-36 in front.

A bench of Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said on Wednesday the five-judge bench would hear the matter for two days.

"My opinion is that once a matter has been referred to a Constitution bench, then all the issues arising out of it should be with the constitution bench".

The Supreme Court has chose to set up a 5 judge Bench to decide on whether Aadhaar violated right to privacy. In a setback to the Arvind Kejriwal government, the Supreme Court had refused to stay the Delhi High Court's verdict declaring the LG the administrative head of Delhi.
