SC issues notice to Centre, Social media platforms in cases related to linking of user profiles with Aadhaar

DD News
The Supreme Court today agreed to hear a plea of Facebook Inc. for transfer of cases related to demands for linking of social media profiles of users with Aadhaar number, pending before the high courts of Madras, Bombay and Madhya Pradesh to the apex court.  The top court issued notice to the Centre, Google, Twitter, YouTube and others and sought their response by 13th of September.

The bench said the hearing in cases related to linkage of social media use profiles with Aadhaar pending before the Madras High Court will continue but no final order will be passed.


The apex court was told by the Tamil Nadu Government yesterday that social media profiles of users need to be linked with Aadhaar numbers to check circulation of fake, defamatory, anti-national and terror material.



Facebook Inc. is resisting the state's suggestion on grounds that sharing of 12-digit Aadhaar number, the Biometric Unique Identity, would violate privacy policy of users.The company had said that it cannot share the Aadhaar number with a third party as the content on its instant messaging Whatsapp was end-to-end encrypted and even they do not have access to it.
