On Independence Day, the beta version of DigiYatra was launched at Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru and Delhi International Airport. This should mean that passengers will be able to board a domestic flight from either location without any paperwork using the e-gate boarding system.

DigiYatra boarding systems and e-gates are operational at Bengaluru and Delhi airports and are being rolled out for all domestic airlines in a phased manner. This should mean that passengers can check in, go through security and board their flights using only facial biometrics to verify their identity and boarding pass.
It is currently already available for passengers flying on Vistara Airlines and Air Asia. You can easily register for DigiYatra App which is already available on Google Play Store. The iOS version of the app is expected to be available in about a month.
According to the DigiYatra Foundation, the DigiYatra Central Ecosystem (DYCE) is built on World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards including Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) with Verifiable Credentials (VC) and Decentralized Identifiers (DID). These measures are aimed at preventing privacy issues with sensitive user data. The foundation claims that passenger data will be deleted 24 hours after their trip.
