If you as an employer are unsure if the child is below 14 years or above 14 years of age, then the age of the child will be determined by a medical authority who will look into the following three documents while determining the age:
- Aadhar card of the child or adolescent.
- Birth certificate from school, or the matriculation or a certificate from an examination Board.
- Birth certificate of the child or adolescent given by a corporation or a municipal authority or a panchayat.
When these three documents are absent, then the medical authority will do an ossification test or any other latest age determination test to find out the age of the child.
As an employer, you should have a certificate of age for the child, in case the inspector wants to determine the age of the child. If the inspector finds out that you have not obtained a certificate of age for the child, he will specifically instruct you to obtain it from a medical authority.
