Soon, new look passport without parents' name

Soon, new look passport without parents' name

The Centre has decided to do away with the printing of the names of a passport holder's parents, address and other details.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has decided to stop printing the last page of the passports which contains information like name of the father, mother, spouse, address, emigration check required (ECR) and old passport number with date and place of issue.

The Indian Security Press, Nasik, will design the new passport in two different colours.

Citizens with ECR status would be issued an orange passport while those with a non-ECR status would continue to get a blue passport.

"Till such time the new passport booklets are designed, manufactured and made available to the ministry, the passports and other travel documents would continue to be printed with the last page," an official said.
