What is the process of deactivating an Aadhar card?

Once an Aadhaar card is issued, it remains valid for the lifetime of the individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as in cases of multiple Aadhaar cards issued to the same individual or if the Aadhaar card is obtained through fraudulent means, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) may take action to deactivate or cancel the Aadhaar card.

If you suspect any issues with your Aadhaar card or believe that it was obtained through fraudulent means, it is recommended to contact the UIDAI directly. You can reach out to them through their tollfree number or visit the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centre for assistance and guidance.

It's important to note that the UIDAI regularly updates its policies and guidelines. Therefore, it's advisable to check the official UIDAI website or contact them for the most uptodate information on any processes related to Aadhaar card deactivation or cancellation.
