The Supreme Court ruling on Aadhaar has not made the unique identity number mandatory for a number of services. Justice Chandrachud of SC called Aadhaar unconstitutional. After a lot of initial hullaballoo about linking Aadhaar to Pan and bank accounts, followed by the data breach, the judges upheld the Constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act. Aadhaar is also not mandatory for school admissions and competitive exams as said earlier. Soon as the judgment came in, social media was abuzz with a lot of reactions, including some jokes and memes of course.

Aadhaar was also made mandatory to link to several welfare schemes and a failure to do so would disable their bank operations. So a lot of people already did link their Aadhar numbers with their banks, mutual funds, DMAT accounts.
