Blue Aadhaar card, also known as Baal Aadhaar, is a special type of Aadhaar card issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) for children below the age of 5 years. It is blue in colour and does not contain any biometric information of the child. Instead, it is linked to the Aadhaar number of one of the parents or guardians of the child.

The Blue Aadhaar card is important for availing various government schemes and benefits for children, such as midday meals, scholarships, health care, etc. It also helps in verifying the identity and age of the child for school admissions and other purposes.

To apply for a Blue Aadhaar card, parents or guardians need to follow these steps:

  • - Visit the UIDAI website at https://myaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/ and click on "Book an Appointment".
  • - Select the option for "New Aadhaar" and fill in the required details of the child and the parent or guardian.
  • - Choose a convenient date and time slot for visiting the nearest Aadhaar enrolment centre.
  • - Carry the original documents of the child (birth certificate or hospital discharge slip) and the parent or guardian (Aadhaar card) to the enrolment centre.
  • - Submit the documents and complete the demographic data capture and photograph capture of the child at the centre.
  • - Collect the acknowledgement slip with an enrolment ID, which can be used to track the status of the application online or by calling 1947.

The Blue Aadhaar card will be generated and sent to the registered address within 90 days. Alternatively, it can be downloaded from the UIDAI website using the enrolment ID or Aadhaar number.
