    Now, it also includes any subsequent response by the Authority regarding the status as to whether any Aadhaar number previously submitted has been subsequently:

    • omitted or

    • deactivated or

    • re-activated

    The requesting entity must enter a Memorandum of Understanding (‘MoU’) or agreement with the Authority for authentication with update of such status.

  2. Regulation 9 relating to “Process for performance of authentication” has been revised. After matching the input parameters from the information of Aadhaar number available in Central Identities Data Repository (‘CIDR’) and further the CIDR has verified the correctness or lack, the Authority will return a digitally signed Yes or No response/ e-KYC response with encrypted e-KYC data with other technical details.

  3. Regulation 10 relating to Notification/Acknowledgement of authentication or offline verification to Aadhaar number holder has been revised and a sub- regulation has been introduced according to which:

    • “Aadhaar cancelled” or “Aadhaar omitted” will mean that such Aadhaar number has been omitted.
