Baal Aadhaar card – No biometric details required for children below 5 – know to get it
Parents should take their child to the nearest Aadhaar centre and get the biometric update of the child done, the UIDAI suggested.
Baal Aadhaar is a blue-coloured variant of the Aadhaar Card, issued for children below the age of 5 years. No biometric details are required for children below the age of five. When a child reaches the age of five, a mandatory biometric update is required.
“A child below 5 years gets a blue colour #BaalAadhaar. Biometric update is mandatory at the age of 5 yrs. Take your child to a nearby Aadhaar Kendra for #MandatoryBiometricUpdate”, UIDAI reminded parents from its official Twitter handle.
The UIDAI gave the link — appointments.uidai.gov.in/easearch.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 for those who may find it difficult to locate the nearest Aadhaar Kendra and suggested such parents to locate the nearest Aadhaar Kendra by logging in at the given direct UIDAI link.
UIDAI said that if the child is an NRI, then a valid Indian passport of the child is mandatory as Proof of Identity (PoI). It also said that if the child is an Indian resident, then any valid proof of relationship documents such as a birth certificate, along with the Aadhaar of the parent or guardian can be used for enrolment.
It also said that if the child is between 5 to 18 years of age, one of the parents or guardians has to give consent for enrolment of the minor by signing the enrolment form.
