It is reported that a group of Private Companies have indicated their desire to implead themselves in the Aadhaar suit in the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court is yet to approve their request.
According to the report, the petition has been filed by the Digital Lenders Association of India (DLAI), which includes startups such as CapitalFloat and Lenoding-Kart, is also backed by others such as early-stage investment firm Khosla Labs, bike-sharing startup Yulu Bikes, Transaction Analysts, which provides authentication services, and Handy Online Services which provides background verification of blue-collar workers.
It is clear that Aadhaar case is a fight between those who think Aadhaar is beneficial to the society and those who think it is a violation of their right to remain anonymous in financial and other transactions.
In this fight the honest citizens of the country have as much right as those who are opposing Aadhaar either for political reasons or for their vested interests of keeping their black wealth from being identified.
Supreme Court cannot ignore the voice of those who support Aadhaar and there is no reason that they should delay the acceptance of the impleading suit from non Government companies or individuals.
I hope the Supreme Court will see reason and act in a fair and equitable manner.
