DigiYatra Explained: What Is Contactless Passenger Processing System? How It Works?

The beta version of DigiYatra has been rolled out for Google Android users.

The passenger procession system runs on facial recognition technology, which has began its operations at Delhi airport, with infrastructure previously set up at Terminal 3 of the airport.

To use the platform, passengers at the airport will have to download the DigiYatra app on their Android phones, while iOS users can wait for sometime to use the feature, as it will be available to them in the coming weeks.

The main purpose of the Govt application would be to establish the identity of a passenger at airports without any paper or contact processing. The whole experience truly will be contactless.

The traveler will have to pass through set (multiple) checkpoints at the airport, including security check areas, entry into the airport and aircraft boarding point, among others, using the facial recognition technology, the DigiYatra app will establish the identity of the passenger linked to the respective boarding pass.

Once a user has downloaded the DigiYatra app on their Android phone, they will have to  register on the app through their Aadhar credentials, proceeding then with a selfie with the Aadhar card.

Following this step, since the app is used in the travel and hospitality sector, the user will have to put in their vaccination details through the CoWin credentials on the app.

The traveler will then have to scan their boarding pass with the QR code, post which their travel details and credentials will be shared with the airport authorities.

To enter the airport too, the traveler will have to scan their boarding passes at the e-gate and look directly into the facial recognition system camera installed at the entry point.

This same thing will be repeated at every DigiYatra checkpoint.
