How To Make Aadhar Card For Child

The Aadhaar enrolment process for children is quite similar to that of adults, except for certain minor differences. For enrolling children, parents will have to go to the nearest enrolment centre and fill in the enrolment form. The Aadhaar card for a child will be issued free of cost. The difference here will be that:

  • There will be no biometric data captured in the case of children below 5 years of age
  • A child’s Unique Identification (UID) will be issued by taking into reference the demographic data and photos that are linked to the UID of the parents
  • However, it will be required for the child upon turning 5 years and 15 years  to update his/her demographic data -biometrics of ten fingers, facial photo, an iris scan
  • If parents are applying for an Aadhaar card for their child who is below 5 years, it is required to furnish the details of the parent or guardian in the enrolment form

How to apply for a children’s aadhaar card

  • Go to the nearest enrolment centre and fill up an enrolment form
  • The parents can provide documents and details to prove the relationship to their child
  • Parents can review the information, make a correction if necessary and submit the form
  • Collect the acknowledgment slip along with the enrolment number
