10 % Aadhaar Applications rejected by UIDAI

Till Mid-July 2014, UIDAI has received 73.71 crores applications for issuance of Aadhaar numbers. After final scrutiny of the Data, a total of 8.45 crores applications were rejected by UIDAI.

            Finally, 64.05 crores Aadhaar Numbers were generated by UIDAI.

            One of the main reasons for rejection of Aadhaar applications is the submission of multiple applications by the same applicant. It has been observed that the same applicant after waiting for his/her Aadhaar number reapplies if the Aadhaar number has not been received for a considerable time.

            The UIDAI website clearly states that in case of any rejection, the reason for rejection along with steps to be taken post rejection will be communicated to the resident and the Registrar.
