Presently there is no policy to give up Aadhat. However, Aadhar holders can secure their
Biometric Authentication as per need by locking or unlocking Biometrics using "Lock/Unlock Biometrics" functionality at UIDAI website.

Procedure to lock Aadhaar biometrics:

  • Go to https://resident.ui..
  • Enter your Aadhaar number  and security code/captcha
  • Click on “Send OTP”.
  • You will receive the OTP in your registered mobile number.
  • Enter the OTP. Click on “Verify”
  • Click on “Enable Biometric Locking” and click “Enable”
