Aadhaar Card is the unique 12 digit identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in 2010. Since then, it is the most important document for any Indian citizen to prove their identity, address, and other details. The significance of having an Aadhaar card is so high that the UIDAI has laid down the norms for applying an Aadhaar card for newly born babies as well.

According to the Rules, no biometrics will be processed for children below the age of 5. While applying for the Aadhaar card of a newly born baby, the UID will be processed on demographic details as well as the facial picture which is linked with the UID of the parents. After the baby turns 5 years old, he/she will be allowed to update their biometrics of 10 fingers. These biometrics will be updated again with the facial picture once the child turns 15.
