Court says Aadhaar benefits the marginalised and poor, but raised multiple concerns around the law that governs it, particularly concerning privacy.
Aadhaar cannot be made compulsory for services such as bank accounts, mobile connections or school admissions.
But Aadhaar must be liked to PAN cards, making it essential for filing income tax returns, ruled the court.
