India's Unique Identification Authority (UIDAI) says that a child's birth certificate or discharge certificate from the hospital and the Aadhaar of one parent would be sufficient to enroll the child in Baal Aadhaar.
So, suppose a parent does not want to wait for the birth certificate. In that case, they can apply for a Baal Aadhaar card for the newborn baby using the discharge certificate and the Aadhaar of the parent.
Fingerprint and biometric data are collected when the child is five years old. When the child reaches the age of 15, the biometric data must be updated. The number of newborns registered in the past few months and birth certificates.
The Unique Identity enrolled more than 79,000 children aged 0-5 in the current financial year's first four months (April-July).
It is part of a new effort to reach more children aged 0-5 under the Bal Aadhaar initiative and help parents and children reap the benefits. While 2.64 crores of children aged 0-5 had Bal Aadhaar at the end of March 31, 2022, this number rose to 3.43 crores by the end of July 2022.
Bal Aadhaar's recording is going very well, with an increasing rate across the country. The registration of children aged 0-5 in states such as Himachal Pradesh and Haryana has covered more than 70% of the target age group.
Child registration (0-5 years old) also went very smoothly in several other states and UTs, including Jammu and Kashmir, Mizoram, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, and Lakshadweep.
UIDAI and regional offices continuously encourage residents to come forward and enroll their children under the Bal Aadhaar initiative. Bal Aadhaar works as a facilitator for several social benefits and also does digital photo IDs for children from birth.
It is issued in blue to distinguish Bal Aadhaar from normal Aadhaar, with the caption that this is valid until the child is five years old. At age 5, the child must provide his or her biometrics in Aadhaar Seva Kendra to complete a process known as Mandatory Biometric c (MBU).
The MBU process undergoes a deduplication process. After completing this process, the child receives a normal Aadhaar without any change in the Aadhaar number.
