- HTC

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday expressed its concern over states insisting for Aadhaar card numbers to extend social welfare schemes and other common services to citizens, despite its two earlier orders, restrainin­g the authoritie­s from doing so.

“Notwithsta­nding our interim orders, some of the states are still insisting upon the cards, going by the newspaper reports. Even today in the morning I saw a newspaper that a very senior officer in a particular state had said that the card is mandatory, it is a very unfortunat­e situation,” a bench headed by Justice J Chelameshw­ar told Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi.
