I completed all fields and got Autobiographer but even after deleting I have that badge as you can see here why it hasn't removed?

Badges don't get removed like that. You keep it once you have earned it. This is consistent across all similar badges. –  Andrew Barber Nov 2 '12 at 20:45
I know the working But the fact is I have it without completing its criteria sorry :D –  StillerQ Nov 2 '12 at 20:52
You said you did complete them, then later deleted. –  Andrew Barber Nov 2 '12 at 20:53
And I quote: "The Stack Exchange administration has stated repeatedly that "regular" badges never go away unless they were obtained by heinous cheating." ... what you have done is not really heinous cheating. –  Bart Nov 2 '12 at 20:55

Badges are almost never removed once you get them.

A similar situation is when you get the Nice Answer badge by getting a score of 10, but then get downvoted again to a score of 9. The badge will be kept.
