The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has introduced a blue coloured ‘Baal Aadhaar’ card for children below the age of five years.
The card will be issued to children in the age group without any biometric details but they will be required to complete a mandatory verification process when they turn five and then again when they are 15 years old.
