For the uninitiated, many people recently found UIDAI number in their phones even though they never saved it.

This started a chain of reaction among people, most of whom were confused and slightly freaked out at this alleged breach of privacy.

Seeing the entire thing going out of hand after sufficient media coverage, UIDAI took to Twitter to clarify that it has not asked the service providers to give any such facility and that the mentioned number is outdated.

To this, people replied asking why is the number mentioned on the Aadhaar card and various other websites if it is invalid.

Some people, on the other hand, were just plain confused and angry.

Now that UIDAI has denied giving permission for this, things have definitely become a bit disconcerting.
