The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on next wednesday a plea challenging various notifications of the Centre to make Aadhaar card mandatory for availing benefits of government schemes.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar agreed to the contention of senior advocate Shyam Divan that the Aadhaar matter is very important and needed to be heard on an urgent basis.

He said, despite the order of this court that Aadhaar will be voluntary and not mandatory, the government has been coming out with a series of notifications making it mandatory to avail benefits of schemes like scholarships, Right to Food and mid-day meal in schools.
