Statement 1 is incorrect. Aadhaar card is not a proof of citizenship or domicile. It is an identification document issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that establishes the identity of a resident of India. It does not confer or prove citizenship or domicile status.

Statement 2 is also incorrect. Aadhaar numbers can be deactivated or omitted by the Issuing Authority in certain circumstances. For example, if it is found that the Aadhaar number was obtained using false information or through fraudulent means, the UIDAI has the authority to deactivate or cancel the Aadhaar number.
