The girl's parents enrolled for her Aadhaar number which they received in just six minutes after her birth on Sunday, in one of the rare cases of getting the vital identity proof within minutes of being born.

The child was born at the Osmanabad district women's hospital at 12.03 pm on Sunday.

At 12.09 pm, her parents got her online birth certificate and the Aadhaar number from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), district collector Radhakrushna Game said.

"It's a proud moment for Osmanabad. We will soon register all children for Aadhaar and link them with their parents' Aadhaar cards," he said.

The newborn and her mother were doing fine, the hospital's civil surgeon, Dr Eknath Male, said.

Around 1,300 children born at the Osmanabad district women's hospital in the last one year have got their Aadhaar numbers, he claimed.
