Updated : August 22, 2018 08:19 AM IST
A bench of Justice S. Ravindra Bhat and Justice A.K. Chawla asked the Centre and UIDAI to file response within six weeks and listed the matter for further hearing on November 19.
The court was hearing a plea filed by Shamnad Basheer through advocate Siddharth Aggarwal alleging that the dissemination of personal information of Aadhaar holders made it clear that government is responsible for any breach of right to informational privacy.
Basheer has also requested the court to appoint an independent committee comprising multiple experts to investigate the scope, extent of breaches and the magnitude of harm caused due to data leak.
