Tags: National News
The Consultative Committee meeting of the Ministry of Civil Aviation was held in New Delhi on 18 July. The topic for discussion was ‘DIGI YATRA’.
About ‘DIGI YATRA’
The project is envisioned to achieve contactless, seamless processing of passengers at airports based on Face Recognition System (FRT).
The basic idea of this project is that any passenger can pass through various checkpoints without any paperwork or contact.
For this, his facial features will be used, which will establish his identity, which will be directly linked to his boarding pass.
Privacy issues have been taken care of in this system.
It provides a decentralized mobile wallet based identity management platform which is also affordable and also addresses the privacy/data security issues in the implementation of Digi Yatra.
Objectives of DIGI YATRA
Providing a simple and easy experience to all air travellers.
Achieve better throughput through existing infrastructure using “Digital Framework”.
Result in lower cost operations.
Digitizing the existing manual process and bringing in better efficiency
First Phase of DIGI YATRA
In the first phase, Digi Yatra will be launched in August 2022 at two airports in Varanasi and Bengaluru.
It is proposed to start at five airports of Pune, Vijayawada, Kolkata, Delhi and Hyderabad by March next year.
AAI will identify the airports where Digi Yatra will be implemented in a phased manner.
