Reportedly Unique Identification Authority of india (UIDAI) aka Aadhaar is a one stop card of an Indian citizen to know about this status be it financial or any other stuff.  Meanwhile after its inception, the central government has asked the citizens to link it with bank account, phone number, welfare schemes and others for security and transparency reasons. Currently as per report Aadhaar might get linked with social media.

Furthermore Tamilnadu government is demanding to link social media with Aadhaar and filed a petition accordingly in Tamilnadu High court. Meanwhile not just the TN sarkar, three more Public Interest Litigation (PIL) were lodged at Madhya Pradesh and Bombay High Court. Facebook has approached Supreme Court of india, when refused to do so. Further TN government in its petition said that due to WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter hatred is spreading which is leading to violent incidents and cited many such crimes that happened during the last few years.

Moreover advocate on behalf of TN government said that social media must be linked to Aadhaar. Perhaps this will reduce the use of explicit content, terrorist activities and also the culprits can be caught in quick time, added the advocate. Hence reputed lawyers Mukul Rohatgi and Kabil Sibal argued on behalf of Facebook in the Supreme Court. Apparently phone number and E-mail are alternatives for identification of user and moreover, respective state High Courts have no authority to take a call on linking of Aadhaar and social media and it is completely Supreme Court's call. Finally after hearing the arguments from both the side, the apex court has served notices to the central government, Google, Facebook and Twitter and the case has been postponed to further hearing on September 13th.
