Due to which people are unable to link their Aadhaar with PAN to file income tax returns, which has been mandated by the Government.The last date of linking Aadhaar and PAN card is declared to be Aug 31st, 2017.  However, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) department has assured that the citizens can get their Aadhaar Cards reactivated at their nearest updation center.

The reason explained by the UIDAI officials is that

The cards might have been deactivated as part of a system clean-up. They just need to update their card with biometric information

The Clean Up refers to wiping of the cards which are duplicates or contains fallacious information.

Reason of Deactivation
According to the sections 27 and 28 of the Aadhaar (Enrollment and Update) Regulations, 2016, it is stated that cards can be deactivated if discrepancies were found in the biometric data or supporting documents, or where there were more than one Aadhaar card issued.

The Centre has accepted the deactivation of the cards over the last few months. They have also intimated district representatives to spread the awareness about the re-activation process, which requires only the biometric data.

In a scenario where the citizens still spending time on long queues in order to enrol in Aadhaar System, deactivation became a serious issue.
