A writ petition was filed on Tuesday in the Kerala High Court seeking to declare implementation of the Aadhaar programme unconstitutional.

The petition was filed by Aseez Kolakadan from Kozhikode. According to him, the government had no authority to insist on taking Aadhaar as a prerequisite for getting benefits under various government schemes.

The petitioner said the National Unique Identification Authority of India 2010 had not been made into an Act.
