that’s all! If such message you are able to see, then set back and relax, your aadhar number is still valid and not been deleted by UIDAI or government.
What if my aadhar data fails to display?
As per the provisions of Sections 27 and 28, a person’s Aadhaar can be cancelled or deactivated if multiple aadhaars have been issued, or there are discrepancies in the biometric data or supporting documents given at the time of enrolment.
If you are not able to see your aadhar details such as age range, gender and state, then your aadhar has been deactivated. They will enquire the whole case and after that only they will re-activate your aadhar number.
How to stop unauthorized access of your aadhar?
If you suspect your aadhar number is being used for fraudulent purposes or without your consent, you can lock/unlock your biometric data from UIDAI website online. In that case, your aadhar cannot be used to avail any services that asks for fingerprint verification. To lock or unlock your biometric data , your aadhar must be linked to a mobile number , as OTP verification is required to authenticate you.
