The Supreme Court on Wednesday declared the Centre's flagship Aadhaar scheme as Constitutionally valid.

The top court's five-judge Constitution bench said Aadhaar means unique and it is better to be unique than being best. The first of the three judgements was pronounced by Justice A K Sikri.

Below are the top quotes from the Supreme Court

  • It is better to be unique than being best; Aadhaar means Unique
  • Attack on Aadhaar by petitioners is based on violation of rights, will lead to a surveillance State
  • SC says there has been minimal demographic and biometric data collected by UIDAI for Aadhaar enrolment
  • There is no possibility of obtaining a duplicate Aadhaar card
  • Unique identification proof also empowers and gives identity to marginalised sections of society
  • The concept of human dignity has been enlarged in the judgement
  • There is sufficient defence mechanism for authentication in Aadhaar scheme
  • Robust data protection regime has to be brought in place as early as possible
  • Education has taken us from thumb impression to signature, now technology has taken us from signature to thumb impression
