Mobile Aadhar can now be used as ID proof to enter airports


According to a circular issued by aviation security agency Bureau of Civil Aviation and Security (BCAS), Mobile Aadhaar can be used as an identity proof to enter airports, while identification documents will not be required for minors accompanied by parents.

In its latest communication, the BCAS has said that passengers entering an airport premises need to produce any one of the 10 identity proofs, which include passport, voter ID card, Aadhaar or m-Aadhaar, PAN card and driving licence.

A passbook issued by a nationalised bank, pension card, disability photo identification and service photo ID card of central/state government, PSU, local bodies and private limited company will also be acceptable.

Differently-abled people will have to produce a disability photo ID or a medical certificate. Students also have the option to furnish a photo identity card issued by a government institute.
