Generally, children are refrained from opening their own bank account. As a rule, a child till the age of 18 cannot have an independent account or legal document, however since the Aadhar project has been launched in India, children can get their own unique identity number easily.
However, the required documentation for Aadhar card for kids would be of his/her parents, until the age of 18. Although kids above 1 year of age can get their Aadhar number easily, they will not give their biometrics as their fingerprints change time to time till the age of 5. Therefore, for kids below 5 years of age, will have their Aadhar card but linked to their parent’s Aadhar number.
After the age of 5, they can have their own Aadhar card with all the demographic and biometrics included. The card will need an update again at the age of 15. Children above 15 years of age, will finally get their biometrics done for the last time and it will be attached to his/her Aadhar card.
Soon as the child turns 18, they can get their final Aadhar card with their own documents. Though It seems a bit more exaggerated process, it is a lifelong identity card which will remain legal all your life.
