Passports to be issued sans last page now on

How much information this step could safeguard remains to be as seen as passport offices and the immigration department would still have all the details of passport-holders.

The Indian passport is containing the name, date of birth, photograph and other details in the first page and the address of the person will be mentioned in last page. As a outcome, the document that shows citizenship will cease to be a valid proof of address photo copy of which is now taken for use at government and private offices.

The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday announced that new passports will soon be printed without the usual last page of the document, which contains names of parents, and address of the applicant.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, Surendera Kumar, under-secretary of policy and legal matters at the consular, passport and visa division of the ministry confirmed that the change could happen when the "next series" of passports is being issued.

Thus, passports will no longer serve as a proof of address.

Eagles clip Falcons to advance
It turns out, though, that Foles is better at throwing the football than the Falcons ' secondary is at catching the football. The Vikings tied the Patriots for the best ATS mark this season at 11-5 and are on an 18-6 spread streak as home favorites.

The last page of the Indian passport now lists the names of father/legal guardian, mother, spouse, address, and whether the holder is in the 'Emigration Check Required (ECR)' category.

However, this legendary proof of existence will soon vanish, because Govt of India is planning to create a new design of the passport, with new colours and new features. Orange for those who require emigration check and the regular blue passports for those who don't. At present, most passports (expect for diplomats and government officials) have a blue cover.

Experts said that creating separate passports for those with the Emigration Clearance Required (ECR) status will create discrimination.

The choice of colour for the ECR passports has raised eyebrows as it comes close on the heels of the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh painting public buildings saffron or orange.#. However, it was abolished and the blue passports were introduced with the ECR stamps. In the event of the loss of the document, the holder could obtain a new document easily as the personal details including the fingerprints were stored.Mr. Ranasinghe said the passport would also have better global recognition in view of the additional security features. Also "the existing passports would continue to remain valid till the date of expiry printed in the passport booklet".
