SC to hear Jairam Ramesh’s plea on Aadhaar in November


New Delhi /

The Supreme Court will hear Congress leader Jairam Ramesh’s plea challenging the Lok Sabha Speaker’s decision to certify a bill to amend the Aadhaar law as a money bill in the first week of November.

The matter was mentioned today before a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra by senior advocate Kapil Sibal, who was representing Ramesh and was seeking an early hearing on the plea.

When the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, said the matter would be heard in the first week of November, Sibal requested for an earlier date as it had nothing to do with the batch of petitions pending in the main Aadhaar matter.

“Can’t it be heard earlier? It has nothing to do with the Aadhaar matter. It is about the issue related to money bill and has nothing to do with right to privacy,” Sibal said.

However, the bench said the plea would be heard in November.

The apex court had on August 30 said it would hear a batch of petitions challenging the government’s move to make Aadhaar mandatory for availing benefits of various social welfare schemes in the first week of November.

The apex court had in February observed that it was “tentatively not convinced” with Ramesh’s grounds to challenge the Lok Sabha Speaker’s decision to certify the bill to amend Aadhaar law as a money bill.
