Issuance of E-passports announced by the Central Government
E-Passports to have tamper-proof security features, facilitate immigration at airports.
The Central government announced that the e-passports will boast advanced security features such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip embedded in the passport booklet, and would digitally store personal identifiers. The rollout of e-passports is likely to begin this year. The “chip characteristics” were in line with International Civil Aviation Organization, a United Nations agency that defined standards for travel documents.
