The issue related to extension of deadline came up during the hearing of another petition in which the court directed the CBSE not to mandatorily seek Aadhaar number from students for enrolling themselves for appearing in NEET-18 examination. The apex court on Wednesday also recorded the submissions made by the central government and passed the interim order.

The bench then recorded his statement and said that Aadhaar not be prescribed for other entrance examinations also.

They can produce any alternative identification number, such as ration card, passport, voter ID, driving licence or bank account, he said.

CBSE had made Aadhar mandatory to apply for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) examinations in February for which a Abid Patel has file a plea against the order in Gujarat High Court reported OneIndia.

Chidambaram told the court that only those bills meeting the requirements specified under sub-clause (a) to (f) of clause (1) of Article 110 of the constitution can be introduced as Money Bill.

The apex court indicated that it might pass interim orders on March 14 for extending the deadline to avoid confusion.

Another senior advocate, K.V. Viswanathan, complained that there was all-round panic in the country, particularly in the financial markets, as banks and other financial agencies were threatening people with disruption of services if Aadhaar linkage was not done by March 31.

"Our interim order of December 15, 2017, extending the deadline to March 31, has to be followed till the matter is disposed of either way", it said.
