Says the question of whether this law could have been passed by parliament is no longer open after Binoy Viswam when it clearly says 139AA is fully valid on that point.
TM says that is the facet of proportionality.
1. Public purpose.
2. Measures have nexus with the purpose.
3. Necessity of the measure.
4. No lesser alternative measure available.
(Me thinks: TM has forgotten which side he is arguing for?)
TM: Reads the parts in Binoy Viswam discusses inequality has increased in India in arguing for necessity of a measure like 139AA.
(Recall that Prof.Dreze has filed affidavits in this case against Aadhaar!)
TM says he is not arguing on proportionality now..but only to suggeat just because information is collected,...
Bench rises for lunch.
