DigiYatra: After Delhi And Bengaluru, Pune, Vijayawada & Kolkata Airports To Offer Swifter Check In

For airports in India, DigiYatra is a revolutionary technology. The facial recognition system, where you don’t need to produce any documents, is a convenient way to get through the security checkpoints. Moreover, your face is conveniently used as a pass at every checkpoint. The success of DigiYatra at Bengaluru, Delhi and Varanasi airports is recognised by every citizen. This has prompted the Airport Authority of India to take a step further in implementing it in other airports as well. Here is what chairman Sanjeev Kumar said on Thursday about DigiYatra.
