Identity proof now compulsory for booking domestic air tickets
The government is making it compulsory to submit an identity proof while booking domestic air tickets in the country.
This is expected to come into effect after the ‘No Fly List-NFL’ is released today. Passengers will need to give the details of their Aadhaar card, driving license, passport or PAN number while booking tickets for flying within the country.
The government is also planning to allow the use of Election Commission voter ID cards as valid ID proof.
The ID submission and the ‘No Fly List’ are aimed at identifying disorderly passengers and to ensure that people on the NFL list cannot book tickets using different names.
