UIDAI’s statement about the cancellation of an Aadhaar number

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has clarified that no Aadhaar numbers have been canceled in relation to the deactivation of Aadhaar cards. It also said that notifications are periodically sent to Aadhaar number holders as part of maintaining the Aadhaar database up to date.

Aadhaar number holders sometimes get notifications as part of the efforts made to maintain the Aadhaar database current.

It is made clear in this regard that no Aadhaar number has been canceled, according to UIDAI.
According to a report by the news agency PTI, anybody with an Aadhaar number may contact UIDAI with any complaints they may have.
“Anyone with an Aadhaar number who has a complaint about this may file it with UIDAI by visiting this link: https://uidai.gov.in/en/contact-support/feedback.html. Such complaints would be appropriately handled, it said.

The most widely used digital identification is Aadhaar, which is required to access various government-provided services, like as subsidies.
“Adhaar deactivation as a result of a technical issue”
Union Minister Shantanu Thakur said at a press conference that Aadhaar cards are being deactivated because of a technological glitch and that all of them would be activated again in the coming days. According to him, people who have had difficulties are encouraged to request for the cards to be reactivated.

The problem became well-known when West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee claimed that Aadhaar cards belonging to state residents were “deactivated” by the BJP-led national government in advance of the Lok Sabha elections, preventing them from receiving benefits from different social welfare programs.
She said that a number of individuals in Birbhum, North and South 24 Parganas, North Bengal, and Jamalpur, Purba Bardhaman district, had their Aadhaar cards “delinked,” along with 50 other people. She went on to say that her administration would keep up state-run assistance programs even if the recipients don’t have Aadhaar cards.
