  • The blue-cloured Bal Aadhaar will have no biometric identification, like Iris scan or fingerprint scans, as their parents would be accompanying them anywhere such identification is required. Once the kid crosses 5 years of age, then a regular Aadhaar would be issued, which will have the biometric details. 
  • This card will be linked with his/her parent's UID. A biometric update is mandatory at age 5, at age 10 and again at age 15. If your child is above the age of 5, then you have to carry the child's birth certificate and valid school ID.

What is ADHAAR Card?

Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique  identification number issued by Indian government to every citizen.
The Unique Identification Authority of India functioning under the Planning Commission of India, is responsible for managing Aadhaar numbers and Aadhaar identification cards. The motive of issuing Aadhar is to provide a single and unique identification number consisting of all the details like demographic and biometric information. Though, it is not the only idenfication proof and  also does not replace the need of Voter ID, PAN Card and Driving License, but it can be used for KYC norms of banks and other organisations
