All politicians of India will be BJP members soon?

As all new passports will not have lotus instead of lion on top!

India’s national flower `Lotus’ has found its place in the new passports being printed and now being issued since last month is part of an effort to identify fake passports.

“These new features have been approved by International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and there is a basket of new features will be seen in passports from time to time.”

What to look for in the new passports?

– The `Lotus’ has been printed inside a rectangle on the page has replaced the spot where the passport officer’s signature and seal are put

– Compared to the old passports where the space below the second page that contained the signature of the passport officer is now was empty

– This has been replaced by the Lotus printed in the rectangle. Separate columns for entering the name and address of the passport holder has been removed from the new passports

– The new passports come with new codes and have started being used in all the 36 passport offices across the country

– The new passport with special features was first distributed in Kochi last month

– The new passport has been printed on better quality paper and better printing

– It is being done at Nashik

– Besides the Ministry of External Affairs, other agencies including the National Informatics Centre (NIC), the Indian Security Press (Nasik) are part of this new upgraded passport for travellers

– External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar earlier this year in June had announced that the government will come up with advanced security features in passports

– He had said that there is a proposal by MEA to work on e-passports which would help in making a new passport booklet with modern security features. more

The symbol has nothing to do with our political ideology. Indian Public are conscious and aware of the fact that nothing is permanent. more  
We are discussing on a non-issue. Appearing of Lotus on the Pass Port, the national flower, does not make a difference for the common man. more  
At the end of the note by Shri Aditya Sharma is a word "fake" in a lightly shaded area. What do we make of this ? more  
The politicians are trying to make a controversy for a non issue. more  
Is this a big deal that you are having a discussion about it. Lets talk about important things like jobs, infrastructure, changing rural unemployment numbers etc. more
