Supreme Court to hear #Aadhaar case on July 18

A five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court will sit next week to examine a plethora of issues arising out of the Aadhaar identification system, including whether the unique identity number invades the right to privacy. The petitioners had alleged that collection of personal details like finger prints and iris scan violated the right to privacy.

Senior Advocate Shyam Divan and Attorney General for India KK Venugopal mentioned the matter today before Chief Justice JS Khehar.

The Supreme Court had refused to stay the HC judgment. Recently, the Centre had termed Aadhaar a "transformational home-grown IT project".
