Your passports may not serve as a valid address proof anymore

How many times you have presented your passport as a valid address proof to authorities in India? Several, right? But that might soon change. Passports may no longer be valid proof of address as the Government is mulling over removing the last page which includes the address of the passport holder.

The External affairs ministry is currently considering the proposal and might take an official call on it soon.

“The last page is never checked anywhere, but the personal identity of a traveller is important. Names of the mother or the father or the spouse is not required. The decision has been taken after the government mulled over it for sometime.
