Aadhaar Card for newborn babies

Thursday, May 12, 2016


  • The new software tested successfully
  • Aadhaar card can be had from local Mee Seva after 21 days when the baby is given a name

Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has successfully tested a software integrating registration of births with enrolment of Aadhaar card.

An UIADI team from Hyderabad visited the Government General Hospital here and tested the softer – Child Enrolment Client. The Civil Registration System data of birth and death registrations form municipalities and panchayats is sent to the Registrar-General of India. Enrolment for Aadhaar cards is done separately at the designated centres. In the new system, the UIDAI can source the Birth Registration Data from the RGI to generate an Aadhaar card. The process begins at the hospital where details of date of birth, sex and parents are registered along with enrolment of Aadhaar Card. The data is then sourced through the software. An UID enrolment number is generated and sent to the mobile number of the parents. The birth registration certificate would also have the UID number along with the registration number. After 21 days, when the baby is given a name, the Aadhaar card could be generated through the local Mee Seva centre.
