Can the resident’s data be purged from Aadhaar database?

As is the case with the other services availed from the government, there is no provision for purging the data of the resident from the database once he has obtained his Aadhaar. The data is also required as it is used for de-duplication of every new entrant in the database against all the existing records to establish the uniqueness of the resident. Only after this process is completed that the Aadhaar is assigned.
