On Friday, the Supreme Court has refused to entertain a petition challenging the recent Aaadhar Ordinance brought by the Centre and asked the petitioners to first approach the High Court with its grievances.  

A bench of Justices SA Nazeer and SA Bobde said that they are not expressing anything on the merits of the case and they would also like to have a view of the High Court over the issue.

The justice-bench continued that “we would like to have advantage of the view of the high court.”

A Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi has appeared for the petitioners, told the justice-bench that it was a matter of national importance as it would have a PAN-India effect and the Supreme Court should decide over the issue.

However, the bench has allowed the petitioner to withdraw the petition and granted liberty to approach the court.

On March 3, President Ram Nath Kovind had given his assent to the Aadhaar Ordinance, which allowed voluntary use of Aadhaar Card as ID proof to obtain mobile SIM cards and also opening a bank account.
