Government plans to introduce Digi Yatra initiative soon
Union Minister Jayant Sinha said the central government is planning a new initiative to increase the security and boarding process in airports called ‘Digi Yatra’.
The initiative will use Aadhaar card or passport number and a digital way to verify passengers.
Sinha said that the new initiative will be introduced in stages.
He said the government also plans to add 100 more airports over the next 2-3 years.
Recently, a regional air connectivity scheme called ‘UDAN’ was introduced by the government.
The UDAN scheme makes air travel cheaper to the common people in the regional areas and improves connectivity with more airports in the country.
