Govt may take address off the passport, change colour to orange

His reaction follows a decision by the External Affairs Ministry to not print the address of the holder on the last page of a passport, effectively meaning that the travel document may no longer serve as a valid proof of address.

On Friday, the government made a decision to change the passport colour from blue to orange for people with Emigration Check Required (ECR) status. However, the requisite information will still be stored in the system of the external affairs ministry, so it will not affect the government's working.

The foreign ministry has announced the news last week. There could be some more changes in the passport like colour scheme.

The last page of the passport includes the father or legal guardian's name, the names of the holder's mother, spouse and their address. The ECR is at present stamped on the first two pages of the passport. Reason behind specifying the address in last page is that this last page won't be there doesn't influence the passport office and the immigration department (or security organizations) since they have each of the details of the identification holder in the back-end. Hence, no longer the passport can be used for verifying your address.

Iran sanctions: Tehran vows retaliation over Trump move
In a statement later Friday Trump said those who do not work with him to amend the deal are effectively siding with Iran. A statement from French President Emmanuel Macron on January 13 called for the "necessary respect" of the nuclear deal.

The Narendra Modi government, which usually prefers homogenisation, has chose to move to a two-colour format for personal passports: orange and the existing dark navy blue.

The history of passport dates back to approximately 450 BC when King Artaxerxes I of Persia issued a letter to an official named Nehemiah for travelling beyond his country to Judea, the modern day Israel.

The "next series" of passports which would be issued will have the last page blank. As has dependably been the situation when new series is issued, every single existing global ID will stay substantial till their expiry date.

While Indian passports have a blue cover, diplomatic and official passports have white and red jackets, respectively.
