From today, you would be asked to provide your government ID when you book your air tickets like good old IRCTC days. The government hasn’t even finalized all the rules like GST or demonetization but does that even matter?
The No-Fly rules, which will see the final implementation by the Ministry of Civil Aviation from Friday, will no longer allow booking of domestic flight tickets without using a government ID, as per a report from Times of India.
Next time onwards, one will have to give the number of any one of these government IDs for booking a domestic flight: Aadhaar, driving license, passport or PAN number. There is no consensus about Voter Id being allowed.
Seeing the national use of Aadhar card gaining popular, I am sure, in coming months, they would disband all other ids and keep one solo id. Pan Card and Passport have already been connected to aadhar card.
