Aadhar Card is one of the most important documents for every citizen in India. Even for the children below the age of 5 years, Aadhar card is made, which is called as Baal Aadhar Card. But, rules for applying for it are much different. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), issuing body of the Aadhar has changed procedure for issuing the Aadhar cards for Children’s. 

Now, parents can apply for their child’s Aadhar card by presenting the birth certificate or slip issued by hospital where the child was born.

Baal Aadhar is granted to children under the age of five, however under the new law, children under the age of five will not be needed to provide fingerprints from their retina and five fingers. Biometrics are no longer required for children under the age of five, according to the UIDAI. Notably, when the child reaches the age of five, the biometric will be necessary. After then, there will be a child Aadhar card, much like the regular Aadhar card.
