SC clears plan to verify mobile phone users through Aadhaar
09 February 2017 Current Affairs: The Supreme Court has approved the government‘s plan to record the identification details of mobile subscribers through an e-KYC (Know Your Customer) mechanism linked to Aadhaar in a bid to enhance national security and prevent fake users.

A Bench led by Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar asked the government, represented by Attorney-General Mukul Rohatgi, to put in place the mechanism within a year. 

The mechanism would cover at least 100 crore mobile phone subscribers, 90% of whom use pre-paid cards.
