The Aadhaar numbers are deactivated for a number of reason(s) as stated in Section 27 and 28 of Aadhaar (Enrolment & Update) Regulations, 2016. Till date, approximately 81 lakh Aadhaar numbers have been deactivated. The State-wise, year-wise and reason-wise data is not maintained by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
Prior to enactment of the Aadhaar Act, 2016, the deactivation (suspension) of Aadhaar numbers was done as per the Aadhaar Life Cycle Management (ALCM) guideline. Subsequent to the enactment of the Aadhaar Act, 2016, the provisions of the Aadhaar Life Cycle Management were incorporated in the Aadhaar (Enrolment & Update) Regulations, 2016 and deactivation of Aadhaar numbers is done as per these Regulations.

The authority to deactivate the Aadhaar number rests with Regional Offices of UIDAI. In addition, deactivation of Aadhaar due to mixed/anomalous biometrics is done by the UIDAI Technology Centre. As per the laid down procedure, “Any Case reported/ identified as a possible case of requiring omission/deactivation may require a field enquiry which may include hearing the persons whose Aadhaar number is sought to be omitted or deactivated.”
