New Delhi: The Central government on Friday told the Supreme Court that linking of Aadhaar card with mobile phone numbers must be done by February 6. The same will be done under E-KYC verification.

Centre said that it was Apex court which had approved the norm for mandatory Aadhaar-mobile phone linkage in the Lokniti Foundation case.

Busting the myth, the government said that no deaths owing to starvation have taken place because of not having Aadhaar.

“Until March 31, existing bank accounts will not be made non-operational for not linking with Aadhaar. But as far as opening new bank accounts are concerned, Aadhaar or enrolment ID must be given as proof of identity. For existing account holders, the deadline for Aadhaar based verification is being extended to March 31 and no coercive action will be taken till then,” the Centre stated in a fresh affidavit.
