Know these differences in Latest e-Passport

Indian Security Press Nashik is printing 70 lakh e-passport blank booklets in the first year. This press has got an order to print 4.5 crore chip passports.

With the new passport with 41 advanced features, the immigration process will be completed within minutes at airports in 140 countries that

comply with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards. In appearance it will be similar to the present passport booklet. Only on one of the pages in the middle of the booklet will there be a radio frequency identification chip and a small foldable antenna at the end.

The chip will have our biometric details and all those things which are already there in the booklet. The scheme called Passport Service Program 2.0 (PSP) is yet to be launched. The scheme will be implemented in a phased manner so that there is no rush at the centers for chipped passports. For this, passport centers are being technically upgraded.
