The Supreme Court has extended the March 31st deadline for linking the Aadhaar card to services such as mobile phones, insurance, and banking. The extension is until the Supreme Court is able to determines its validity.

In the immediate aftermath of the order, the decision seemed like a major relief to those who were worried about Aadhaars implications for citizen’s privacy. The government has, after all, been pushing the linking of Aadhaar to all of its services and reminding private companies to do so as well.

This decision to extend resulted in an explosion on Twitter, the highlights of which we have put together for you.
