What happens if my Aadhaar is deactivated?

If your Aadhaar is deactivated, it means that your Aadhaar number has been temporarily or permanently suspended by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) due to certain reasons. The reasons for Aadhaar deactivation can include:

1. Duplicate Aadhaar: If multiple Aadhaar numbers have been issued to the same individual, UIDAI may deactivate all the duplicate numbers except the latest one.
2. Data Quality Issues: If there are discrepancies or errors in the biometric or demographic data provided during Aadhaar enrollment, UIDAI may deactivate the Aadhaar.
3. NonCompliance: If an individual does not comply with the rules and regulations regarding Aadhaar usage or violates the terms and conditions set by UIDAI, the Aadhaar may be deactivated.
4. NonUsage: If an Aadhaar number remains inactive for a long period of time, UIDAI may deactivate it.
5. Other Reasons: UIDAI may deactivate Aadhaar in case of suspicion of fraud, misuse, or any other valid reason.

If your Aadhaar is deactivated, you will no longer be able to use it for authentication or availing various government services or subsidies. However, you can reactivate your Aadhaar by visiting the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Center and following the reactivation process. You will need to provide the necessary documents and undergo the required verification procedures to reactivate your Aadhaar.

It's important to keep your Aadhaar details updated and comply with the rules and regulations set by UIDAI to avoid any deactivation of your Aadhaar in the first place.
