 sc

New Delhi:  The Supreme Court today asked various petitioners challenging Aadhaar making mandatory to mention it before the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Court for the Constitution Bench to hear the matter. A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Justice J Chelameshwar, and also comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and Navin Sinha, asked the petitioners to mention it before the CJI court. The apex court earlier on June 9 judgement had stayed the Central Government order of linking Aadhaar with PAN and said till the Constitution Bench decided the matter, it was stayed. The apex court had passed the order after hearing in detail the submissions and arguments from one of the petitioners, Vinay Visman, and other parties including the Central Government. The top court had also upheld the validity of the section 139 AA of the income tax act which prescribes linking of PAN with Aadhaar. The Court, however, stayed the operation of the linking of Aadhaar with PAN Card till the final judgement of the case by the Constitution Bench.
