Whether it is to get a train ticket, to get admission to school or college, to open an account in a bank, or to register online somewhere, all one needs is 12 digits Aadhaar numbers. Most people do not know that children also need an Aadhaar card.
If your child is less than 5 years old, then you will also have to get an Aadhaar card made for him. This will be a blue colored card, which is called Baal aadhaar card. This card will become invalid when the child is above 5 years of age. After the card is invalid, the child will have to get a new Aadhaar card again, for which biometric updation will have to be done.
The child’s biometric or Irish scan will not be done in the child Aadhaar card, because in young children, biometric development is not done. Documents of the child’s parents will be replaced instead. Applicants for the child’s Aadhaar card must be residents in India and must be under 5 years of age.
