How to Register in Digi Yatra: Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia launched the Digi Yatra service in India earlier this week. The service aims at contactless processing of passengers at airports based on facial recognition technology (FRT). To use this facility, passengers will have to register themselves on the DigiYatra app using Aadhaar-based verification and a self-image capture. Once registered, passengers will be able to travel through various check points at supported airport terminals in a paperless and contactless manner.
Inaugurating this service, the minister said that this service has been designed keeping in mind the privacy and security. He said that there is no central storage of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Passenger ID and travel information will be stored in a secure wallet on the passenger’s smartphone itself. Furthermore, the minister said that the uploaded data would use blockchain technology and all data would be deleted from the server within 24 hours of use.
Digi Yatra Availability in India
Initially the Digi Yatra service will be available at three airports, which include IGI Airport in New Delhi, Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru and Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport in Varanasi. By March 2023, this service will be extended to the airports of Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune and Vijayawada. Gradually, the government aims to make this service available at airports across the country. Please tell that at present Digi Yatra service is being started only for the passengers of domestic flights. Passengers can register themselves to use the service in the DigiYatra app which is available on both Android and iOS devices.
