DIGI YATRA



 What is Digi Yatra?

Digi Yatra is a digital processing system for air travelers that uses facial recognition technology to enable paperless movement through various checkpoints at airports.


 Where else could Digi Yatra be implemented?

Digi Yatra could be expanded to hotels, rail travel, and public places such as historical monuments. Discussions are ongoing with government agencies, including the Tourism Ministry and the Railway Ministry.


 How does Digi Yatra enhance travel experience?

Digi Yatra aims to create a seamless travel experience by reducing the need for physical identity checks. For instance, it could simplify check-ins at hotels and verification at police stations.


 How does Digi Yatra ensure data security?

Digi Yatra uses a hash value to identify the content of identity documents, ensuring that no personally identifiable information is stored or leaked. The system saves only a numerical value, not the actual data shared by passengers.


 What are the privacy concerns and how are they being addressed?

Concerns include data access for third-party vendors and the mandatory data purge policy. The Digi Yatra Foundation is revising its policy document to address these issues and ensure proper consent from users during enrollment.


 What is the current status of Digi Yatra at airports?

Launched in December 2022, Digi Yatra currently covers 14 airports and aims to include 15 more by the end of 2024. E-gates are being deployed at various touchpoints, including airport entry gates, security screening queues, boarding gates, and baggage drops.


 What is the role of the Digi Yatra Foundation?

The Digi Yatra Foundation is a not-for-profit private company consisting of a consortium of five private airports (holding 74% share) and the Airports Authority of India (holding 26% share). The foundation oversees the implementation and expansion of Digi Yatra.
