 Air travellers will soon not need any documentation in order to enter airports and complete boarding formalities as the process for installation of Facial recognition System (FRS) is nearing its completion at several airports in the country.

The Facial recognition System is part of the Digi Yatra initiative of the Government of India to provide passengers seamless and hassle-free experience at airports. Sources said it will be implemented in a phased manner.

The first phase is planned at Kolkata, Varanasi, Pune, Vijayawada, Bangalore, Delhi and Hyderabad airports by March 2023.

“Preliminary testing of the Digi Yatra Biometric boarding system with registration for the 'Day of Travel' at these airports has been completed,” a PIB release read.

In a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today, Gen. V. K. Singh (Retd), Minister of State in the Ministry of Civil Aviation said the requirement of security is dynamic in nature.

The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), the regulatory authority for civil aviation security in the country, in consultation with other concerned agencies and stakeholders, reviews the security arrangements at airports from time to time and upgrade the same as per requirement, he said.
