Aadhar will not get accepted as age proof at Transport Department

It's been more than 4 years where UIDAI officially announced that Aadhar Card can be used as an "Age Proof" document.

Aadhar will not get accepted as age proof at Transport Department

Even though after making such statement, Aadhar Card is still not accepted as Age Proof and only accepted as Proof of Address and Proof of Identity in government offices.

Same thing in banking sector also, the banks only accepts Aadhaar Card as address proof and not as a valid age proof document. Earlier Aadhaar Card didn't include Date of Birth but it was only included when you had provided valid Date of Birth document while enrolling for Aadhaar. So those who had provided Date of Birth Document in their Aadhaar Application they would get complete date of birth mentioned on their Aadhaar Card and those who didn't provided any Date of Birth Document only Year of Birth would have mentioned on their Aadhaar Card.

So those who are planning to apply for learners license or want to renew their license, you should be aware that Aadhar Card will not be accepted or considered as age-proof document, so you will have to arrange some other document to prove your age at Transport Department.
