Ah, a popular scam is never complete with a Youtube subscription channel that provides online support. We had a similar aha moment when we found out aadhaar-how-to-hack support channels.

The matter has now been listed on August 13th. The Respondents have been ordered to make their stance clear on the voluntary-mandatory nature of Aarogya Setu.

The Bench ordered that the if the respondents make a statement that no person who has not downloaded @SetuAarogya will be denied access to any services, the prayer of the petition can be worked out.

Senior Adv Colin Gonsalves drew Court's attention towards the Guidelines for Passengers published on the @AAI_Official website.

The State of Karnataka has made Aarogya Setu mandatory for all passengers visiting the State to install

Mr. Nargund, the standing counsel of UoI, argued that the counter filed by the UOI clearly states that the MHA notification dated 30.05.2020 and subsequent orders supersede the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare’s order mandating installation of Aarogya Setu in the offices.

The CJ Abhay Oka sought clarification regarding the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare SoP dated June 4 and the Bangalore Metro decision to make Aarogya Setu mandatory from the Counsel for UOI Mr. Nargund.
