Banks and mobile service providers must specify the due dates – December 31 and February 6 – in SMS’s sent to clients on connecting their records to the Aadhaar numbers, the Supreme Court told the government on Friday.

The top court’s decision comes as a temporary relief for individuals who are confronting dangers of their bank accounts being frozen and mobile connections snapped in the event if they are not connected to Aadhaar. Starting at now, the instant messages don’t contain any due date, suggesting that clients must go along quickly.

The top court is hearing a heap of petitions testing the government’s order for compulsory connecting of Aadhaar number, raising protection concerns, particularly after a current break of nationals points of interest including mobile numbers and bank details.

An Aadhaar card, containing a 12-digit identification proof number, is issued to people in the wake of gathering their biometric information, for example, retina output and fingerprints.

The top court as of late decided that privacy is a “guaranteed fundamental right” which the petitioners are referring to build their case.
