Parent’s Aadhaar number, along with the child’s birth certificate, is enough to enrol your child between 0-5 years age group for Aadhaar. Biometric information is not collected for children under the age of 5 years. And because for children below 5 years no biometrics will be captured, their UID be processed on the basis of demographic information and facial photograph linked with the UID of their parents. These children will need to update their biometrics of ten fingers, iris and facial photograph, when they turn 5 and 15.
To enroll your child for Aadhaar, you only need the child’s birth certificate or the discharge slip from the hospital and the Aadhaar of one of the parents.
