UIDAI said the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016 was passed by the Parliament on March 16, 2016 and notified in the Gazette of India on March 26, 2016. People should link Aadhaar with bank and investment accounts and SIM cards as early as possible to avoid inconvenience, UIADI said.

The Supreme Court will be setting up a five-judge Constitution Bench next week to hear several pleas seeking an interim stay on the Centre's decision of mandatory linking of Aadhaar.

The Central government has previously made Aadhaar card mandatory for carrying out nearly all the legal tasks in the country. On June 1, 2017, PML Rules have been amended to make Aadhaar mandatory for linking all bank accounts, insurance, pension, mutual funds and DMAT accounts.

As the case is pending in the Supreme Court, the government is not enforcing the provision, the official said.
