Is Blue Color Aadhaar Card Valid?
Blue Colored Aadhaar Card is equally valid as normal Aadhaar Card but once the child attends the age of 5 Years the Aadhaar becomes Invalid.
So once the Child attends the age of 5 Year you should get his or her demographic and biometric details updated by showing the same Aadhaar Number from the nearest Aadhaar Card Enrollment Center. A Childs Baal Aadhaar needs two mandatory biometrics updates:
- When the child reaches 5 years of age
- When the child reaches 15 years of age
Both these biometrics updates can be done free of cost from Aadhaar Seva Kendra.
If you don’t get the biometric and demographic details updated by visiting the Aadhaar Kendra than the Aadhaar Number issued to that child will become invalid and it will get only activated once you update the biometric and demographic details. Once the demographic and biometric details are updated your child will soon receive normal Aadhaar Card via India Post within 2 to 3 months. But once your child details get updated you can download digital e-Aadhaar Copy Online.
Below are the steps which you will have to follow to get your Child below 5 years Baal Aadhaar.
