Your passport may not qualify as address proof, if this happens

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. Even under the blue passports are two sections - those who require an emigration check (ECR) and those who do not (ECNR).

In India, a passport is issued by the President of India for the objective of worldwide travel and serves as a legal proof of Indian citizenship as per the Passports Act (1967).

The foreign ministry has announced the news last week.

The Controller General said that persons obtaining new passports would be issued with the new document while those holding the current passports could use them until the validity ended.

The "next series" of passports which would be issued will have the last page blank.
