The Indian Govt is on a roll. I really appreciate what they are trying to achieve here. We are finally moving from 1990s to a modern system. Earlier in April, govt decided to let go of archaic technique of baggage stamping. Now, We are getting rid of the last piece of paper that was required signing.
Now, we don’t need to fill up any information. This would save you a lot of time during immigration.

The departure card goes away. As per a new order from the Union Home Ministry:

It has been decided to discontinue the practice of filling up of the departure card by Indians at all international airports with effect from July 1, 2017.

And why not. All the information required is usually available on the ticket or the passport of the passenger.

Let’s hope we would someday reach 2017 in India and have Europe like system where standing in long queue isn’t that essential.
