Baal Aadhaar: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) says that parents, who have received the Baal aadhaar for their children must know the important update. Being a parent, you just need to update the biometrics of your children when they turn 5. Parents who get failed to update this then Baal Aadhaar will become invalid automatically.
Taking to Twitter, the UIDAI said “The Baal Aadhaar can only be used up to the age of 5 years. It becomes inactive if the biometrics of the child are not updated at the age of 5 years.”
