An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud said the hearing will take place in the last week of November.
The court said this after Attorney General KK Venugopal told the bench that the Centre had filed a detailed affidavit refuting all the allegations on expanding the area under Aadhaar linkage.
Asking the court not to issue any further interim orders, Venugopal said the government had issued more than 100 orders and notifications to address the glitches in the implementation of Aadhaar.
Urging the court to maintain status quo, the Attorney General urged the bench that no interim order should be passed.
