News Update

 

New Delhi: If your child has attained the age of 5, then you must update his or her Aadhaar now without delaying it further. In Aadhaar, while enrolling the children below 5 years of age, fingerprints and iris scans are not captured. The authorities take only a photograph of the child. However, once the child attains the age of 5, biometrics need to be updated mandatorily, UIDAI said.
