The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has written to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) for seeking its advice on linking social media accounts to Aadhaar card number.

The move comes after the Supreme Court had recently sought the central government’s view on the matter.

However, MeitY had not yet taken any final decision on the issue as the law demands Aadhaar number to only be linked to government welfare schemes and subsidies that are funded out of the Consolidated Fund of India.

As per the Internet Freedom Foundation (IFF) the linkage would be unconstitutional and violate the Aadhaar Act.
