This one poses to bei quite clear.
《Chief Justice Dipak Misra extended the deadline after the Centre said it
had already submitted that they were ready to extend the March 31 deadline
for linking of the national biometric identifier with all services and
welfare schemes.
"We direct that the ****March 31, 2018, deadline for linking of Aadhaar
with various services and welfare schemes stand extended till the matter is
heard and judgement is pronounced*** [emphasis added] by the constitution
bench," the bench also comprising Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y
Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan said.
The extension of deadline would ***also*** [emphasis added] apply on the
mandatory linking of Aadhaar with the bank accounts and mobile phone

Here's, however, still another one (and more accurate?):
<<The Supreme Court on Wednesday indefinitely extended the deadline for
linking of Aadhaar numbers with bank accounts and phone numbers [only?],
till the top court pronounces its verdict in the ongoing case.
The five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI)
Dipak Misra, however, said that ***Aadhaar is still necessary to avail
social benefits, services and subsidies*** [emphasis added].
“While the extension is certainly welcome, it is also important to note
that there currently is some uncertainty about whether this extension
applies to linkages made mandatory under Section 7 of the Aadhaar Act.
"If the latest order does indeed exclude Aadhaar linkages mandated under
Section 7, a large number of Central and State Government schemes (such as
PDS, LPG, MNREGA and many more) would still need to be linked to Aadhaar by
the end of the month, significantly diminishing the relief brought by
today's order. We are awaiting a copy of the interim order to clarify
this,” said non profit legal services organisation Software Freedom Law
Centre in a statement.>>

So, the confusion still reigns?
