Mobile Aadhaar can be used as an identity proof to enter airports. According to a circular issued by aviation security agency, BCAS, identification documents will not be required for minors accompanied by parents.
Passengers entering airport premises need to produce any one of the ten identity proofs listed by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) in its latest communication.
These include passport, voter ID card, Aadhaar or m-Aadhaar, PAN card and driving licence. The BCAS circular issued on 26th October said, 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 persons 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.
The order, however, exempts a minor accompanied by a parent or a guardian from producing an identity proof. If a passenger is not able to furnish one of the ten documents, then there is also an option to provide an identity certificate issued by a group A gazetted officer of central/state government.
