The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its verdict for Tuesday on the Centre’s plea that petitions challenging government’s ambitious project to grant Aadhaar cards to all citizens be referred to a Constitutional Bench.

A three-judge Bench, headed by Justice J Chelameswar, said that it will take a decision on whether the questions raised by the Centre can be referred to a larger Bench or not.

On Wednesday, the Centre had sought transfer of pleas against Aadhaar to a larger Bench, saying that a two- or three-judge Bench cannot decide on the matter.
