New Delhi: The government plans to roll-out a facial recognition-based hassle-free entry system at select airports from February 2019.

Accordingly, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has come out with a draft of its "Digi Yatra" policy and called for public comments.

The system has the capability of reducing long queues and the number of security personnel deployed at airports thereby likely bringing down air fares.
