Cancellation of Aadhar cards under Biometric Exception clause

As on date, 384237 Aadhar numbers have been cancelled under Biometric exception clause. In keeping with UIDAI™s commitment to achieve zero failure to enroll, the enrolement client application has the provision to enroll persons with biometric exceptions. It was however noticed that this provision was misused by some operators to enroll residents who are not falling in the category of biometric exceptions. A scrutiny of all biometric exception enrolments was necessitated and this has led to the cancellation of 384237 Aadhar numbers.
