Aadhaar is now passport to Nepal and Bhutan for under 15 and above 65

Aadhaar cards are now travelling documents for Indians under 15 and over 65 travelling to Nepal and Bhutan.
 
Indians other than those in the two age brackets will not be able to use Aadhaar to travel to the two neighbouring countries.
 
Indian citizens going to Nepal and Bhutan don’t need a visa if they have a valid passport, a photo identity card issued by the government of India or an election ID card issued by the Election Commission, it added.
 
Earlier, persons over 65 and under 15 could show their PAN card, driving licence, Central Government Health Service (CGHS) card or ration card, but not the Aadhaar, to prove their identity and visit the two countries.
