Soon, passport may cease to be a valid address proof; here's why

New passports to not qualify as address proof? Govt plans to remove last page change colour report

The last page in the passport which carries vital details like address, father's name and the name of the mother or spouse may not be printed anymore, a new decision by the foreign ministry.

The last page of passports include the name of the father or the legal guardian, the names of the holder's mother, spouse and their address.

"The report of the committee had been accepted by the MEA".

The External Affairs Ministry has also decided not to print the last page of the travel document with the address of the holder. However, this change will not make a difference to the immigration department as all the required details of the holder are printed on the first page.

Passports are now issued in three colours - government officers are issued white passport, diplomats issued red passports and all others are blue. Currently, passports are issued in three colours: white for government officers or to those people who visit other countries for the official work of the government; red for diplomats; and blue for all others across two categories - those who require emigration check (ECR) and those who do not (ECNR). As of now, everyone except diplomatic and official passports, have blue covers. This means if they want to travel overseas for work to a group of 18 countries, majority in Gulf, they would only be allowed to leave India after obtaining an "Emigration clearance" certificate from the office of Protector of Emigrants. As has dependably been the situation when new series is issued, every single existing worldwide ID will stay substantial till their expiry date.

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "The Indian Security Press (ISP), Nasik, would be designing the new passport booklets in due course".

Since this will take time to implement, new passports will continue to be issued in the old format and the existing booklets will remain valid till their scheduled expiry date, the external affairs ministry said.
