​Aadhaar card

Aadhaar serves as proof of identity and address. The document is also needed in association with a plethora of money related tasks. It is mandatory to quote Aadhaar number or provide copy of the same in various places such as when availing LPG subsidy, scholarship benefits from government, with EPF accounts etc. Currently, it does not automatically become inactive or update to reflect the date of death. It is also not yet needed to obtain death certificates.

What can be done by family members is locking details of the deceased individual’s biometrics linked with Aadhaar. This can help avoid any misuse. Locking of biometric credentials of deceased person can be done on UIDAI’s website.
