You May No Longer Have to Stand in Immigration Queues at this Indian Airport!

As per recent reports, Bangalore International Airport Pvt. Ltd. (BIAL) has submitted a proposal to the Bureau of Immigration suggesting the development of biometric technology to lodge the arrivals of Indians re-entering the country at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA).

What is this Procedure?

As per the proposed technology, the passengers would be required to present their iris for a biometric scan at the immigration counter. When the iris of any passenger has been detected and scanned, the passport will get digitally stamped due to the unified database held by the immigration office. The digital stamp would bear the same data as the physical stamp.

As per the proposal submitted, biometrics such as thumb and palm prints may also be used for this purpose. Further, the plan only focuses on deploying this technology for Indian Passport holders. BIAL also plans to implement this technology soon for Indian nationals flying out of the country.

Why This Change

Upon acceptance of this proposal, the immigration experience at the Kempegowda International Airport is sure to change dramatically for the Indian passengers, significantly cutting down the urgent requirement of lining up in queues. 

With such a fascinating technology being proposed for implementation at Kempegowda International Airport, are you heading for a foreign trip in the coming days? Who knows, by the time you return, there might be an iris scanner approving your immigration into the country! Drop your opinion about this initiative in the comments below!
