An Aadhaar card is one of the essential KYC papers in order to get government subsidies and other benefits from different welfare programmes.
As it contains vital information about residents, including complete name, permanent address, and date of birth, all linked to a special 12-digit number that is given by the Unique Identification Authority of India, it is regarded as a crucial identification proof document across several industries (UIDAI). Blue Aadhar, also known as Baal Aadhaar, was created by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The Aadhaar number is displayed to children under the age of five in blue letters.
It should be remembered that a blue Aadhaar card loses its validity when a child turns five. When their child turns five, the Aadhaar holder’s (the parents) Aadhaar data must be updated with biometrics in order for it to be valid. One can go on to the UIDAI’s official website at uidai.gov.in if they have any questions or would want more information.
