The Aadhaar card is a necessary KYC document for accessing government subsidies and benefits in India, as well as for participating in various government-run welfare programs. It serves as a significant identity proof document across various sectors, containing critical information such as an individual's full name, permanent address, and date of birth, all linked to an exclusive 12-digit number generated by the Indian government's Unique Identification Authority (UIDAI).

A new type of Aadhaar card named 'Baal Aadhaar' was introduced by UIDAI in 2018. Unlike the regular white-coloured card meant for adults, this blue-coloured Aadhaar card is issued to children below 5 years of age and carries a unique 12-digit identification number.

For children below 5 years of age, their unique identification number (UID) on the blue Aadhaar card will be processed based on demographic information and a facial photograph linked with the UID of their parents, as biometrics will not be captured for them.  But the child must update their ten fingers, iris, and facial photo biometrics by the time they are five years old, and then again at the age of fifteen. Failure to update the biometrics will render the Aadhaar card invalid after the child crosses 5 years of age. The biometric update for teenage Aadhaar cardholders is free of charge.

Baal Aadhaar Card: Documents

(UIDAI) has stated that parents can apply for a Baal Aadhaar card for their newborn child using a birth certificate or hospital discharge slip as valid documents. They can also use their child's school ID to enrol for the Baal Aadhaar card.
