Aadhaar is being challenged in the court amid apprehensions that it violated right to privacy — that a nine-judge bench had already declared as a fundamental right — with the use of biometric details like fingerprints and iris scans.

At the fag end of the hearing, senior advocates Arvind Datar, Anand Grover and K V Vishwanathan, representing the petitioners, said the Centre cannot compel the citizens to link Aadhaar either with bank accounts or mobile numbers.

The Supreme Court did not pass any interim order on the pleas challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act as well as linking of 12-digit unique biometric identification number with bank accounts and mobile numbers.
