Around 81 lakh Aadhaar numbers have been deactivated by the UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India, according to Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology PP Chaudhary.
"Till date, approximately 81 lakh Aadhaar numbers have been deactivated," the minister informed the Rajya Sabha on Friday.

Here's how you can check if your Aadhaar is active

Go to the 'Verify Aadhaar Number ' link on the UIDAI website.

The 'Verify Aadhaar Number' tool can also be accessed by visiting the UIDAI website. Once you are on the UIDAI website's homepage, find the 'Verify Aadhaar' link on the right hand side of the page.

Enter the 12-digit Aadhaar number in the relevant box to verify if your Aadhaar number is valid or not deactivated, a message on the UIDAI website reads.

In the second field, called 'Enter Security Code', fill in the code as displayed in the image and click 'Verify'.

For active Aadhaar numbers, the next page will display a message confirming the status of the Aadhaar number entered. After completion of the Aadhaar verification process, the tool also displays basic information about the Aadhaar holder such as age band and the last three digits of the registered mobile number.

In case of invalid Aadhaar numbers, the page says the number "doesn't exist" at the end of the verification process.
