  • It eliminates the necessity of physical passports.
  • In place of paper, fingerprints, and facial recognition technology will be used to verify the passenger’s identities. 
  • After mandate approval from the cabinet, this step would further alleviate security and immigration challenges.
  • It would help in the development of necessary airport infrastructure. 

When Will Indian Citizens Become A Part Of The Scheme?

In a recent meeting, Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had a discussion with the Chairman of the Airport Authority Of India (AAI) and the Chief Executive of Private Airports regarding the DigiYatra app to provide a paperless journey to domestic air passengers. 

DigiYatra is a contactless air travel solution that uses facial recognition technology to ensure a hassle-free checking and verification process at airports, ensuring less waste of time and a seamless boarding process. According to Scindia, the DigiYatra facility will be made available to 25 more airports in 2024 which include Mumbai Airport, Bengaluru Airport, Delhi Airport, and more.
