If there's any suspicious transaction, you can place a complaint

Clearing the air around Aadhaar status
Post the September 26, 2018 SCverdict relating to authentication of Aadhaar, there has been some confusion with respect to the services where Aadhaar is necessary and where not.
Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for services such as bank accounts, telecom services, and school admissions/entrance tests.
However, it is still necessary for getting a PAN, filing I-T returns, and availing government welfare schemes.
