The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has taken an important decision regarding updating user Aadhar card data. UIDAI has informed users that they will have to update their biometric information every ten years.

UIDAI has currently said that it will encourage users to freely update their biometric information on their Aadhaar cards. As per the report of UIDAI officials, people will be encouraged to update their face and fingerprint scan. According to reports, people above the age of 70 will not be subject to this ban.


Children between the ages of five and fifteen are currently required to update their biometric information. On the basis of their photograph and biometric authentication of their parents or guardians, children below the age of five years are registered on Aadhaar.

While enrolling for a child's Aadhaar, proof of relationship document, ideally a birth certificate, is required.

According to the government, the child's Aadhaar is issued in blue to differentiate it from the regular Aadhaar and states that it is valid till the child is five years of age.

When a child turns five years old, he/she will have to provide his/her biometrics at the Aadhaar Seva Kendra to complete a process called Mandatory Biometric Update (MBU).

The government reported in August that during the first four months (April to July) of the current fiscal year, UIDAI enrolled more than 79 lakh children in the age group of 0 to 5.

By the end of March 31, 2.64 crore children in the above age group had child Aadhaar, and by the end of July this year, 3.43 crore children had.
