The 12-digit Aadhar number is issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India(UIDAI), Which serves as an Individual’s identity and address details anywhere in India. 

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 photographs when they turn 5 and 15. The Aadhaar enrollment for children is quite similar to that of adults. For this, you need to take your child to the nearest Aadhaar enrollment center and fill in the enrollment form. Check here the online process to apply for an Aadhaar card for a newborn baby online.
