Good that you locked it, sounds to be a dumb typo error, someone must have used their number incorrectly and might have matched your number… and not something you need to immediately panic about, although good to always keep it locked.. Unlock it just when you need to use it and lock it again.

This is for the biometric authentication for your TN ration card. Any one family member buying ration will have to keep finger print to authenticate themselves. We get this email due to finger print authentication in the machine deployed to ration agency.

Do you think that’s possible? @jeff_bezos_amazon_owner you might have to check your recent transactions done using Aadhar transactions history to see where it was last used.

Yeah, we’re a Billion people and we have a 12 digit Aadhar number high chances that a single typo will match a different person..

when i mentioned this issue to uidai the response i received was this

“The biometric authentication failure could have been
a case of inadvertent entry of wrong Aadhaar
number by another resident which matched your
Aadhaar number. To avoid such instances use
Biometric Locking feature of UIDAI. You can
lock/unlock your biometrics at
https://resident.uidai.gov.in/bi...ck

Be cautious about locking aadhaar Biometric data. I tried this feature as soon as they launched it in 2017. Locked it using their android app and couldn’t unlock it when I needed it for bank KYC. Aadhaar app wasn’t updated and always crashed. Tried unlocking on their site but always threw OTP error. It was an unnecessary headache which continued for several weeks. It might have improved now but still its Typical Sarkari service. Trust at your own risk.

download authentication history from uidai website.
It shows all details of authentication attempts.
You can file RTI with uidai and Tamil Nadu e-Governance Agency asking why these authentication attempts were made? who authorised? Authorisation proof detail.

That should solve lots of mysteries.
