The Supreme Court on Friday refrained to order an interim stay on a series of government notifications requiring citizens to have Aadhaar by June 30, 2017, to equally access benefits and entitlements, even as the Centre denied imposing any such “deadline” to force people to get Aadhaar.

The government was responding to a petition challenging 17 notifications issued by various government departments over the past few months, making Aadhaar compulsory after June 30, 2017, to equally access benefits, entitlements, services and welfare schemes. The petition asked the court to stay these notifications as an immediate interim relief.

A Bench of Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and Navin Sinha deferred to June 27 the hearing on the petition after learning that there were other pleas with identical prayers already pending in the court. The court said it would hear all the pleas in an omnibus hearing on June 27, just three days before the notifications are scheduled to be implemented from June 30.
