Aadhar card basically provides a 12 digit unique identification number by scanning the bio-metrics (fingerprint) and iris (retina scan) of an individual
But since the fingerprints and iris of a newborn child or a child below 5 years of age are not fully developed, UIDAI has started the process of filling the child aadhaar card online registration form for children.
