Passengers on plane may have to show Aadhar soon

The government has asked IT major Wipro to develop a blueprint for Aadhar based biometric access to flyers at all airports across India. The aviation ministry had been toying with the idea of linking Aadhar numbers to air travel bookings and then enabling biometric access possible at airports. The push towards taking a concrete step in this direction came at a recent meeting of various airport operators and airlines.
