New Passports may no longer work as Valid Address Proof
The Ministry of External Affairs will soon issue new passports without the last page that contains the residential address of the holder, which means that it may not serve as an address proof in the near future.
Spokesperson for the foreign ministry, Raveesh Kumar, said that the decision was taken based on the recommendations of a three-member committee – comprising officials from the Ministry of External Affairs, and the Ministry of Women and Child Development.
The changes will not affect people holding the old passports, which will continue to remain valid till they expire.
