Bombay HC refuses to defer deadline to link Aadhaar with ration card

 

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has refused to defer the March 31 deadline imposed by the Union government for linking Aadhaar to ration card. A bench of justices Shantanu Kemkar and Rajesh Ketkar, however, directed the Maharashtra government to look into the grievances of technological glitches faced by residents of the state in the digitisation of their ration card, and subsequently, in linking it to their Aadhaar card. The bench was hearing a petition filed by Nashik resident Aziz Pathan. According to the plea filed in 2015, the Maharashtra government issued a resolution notifying a scheme for digitisation of ration cards.
