Your Passport May Now Be Orange: 5 Proposed Changes to the Passport

Passport to lose address page
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) also made a decision to discontinue the last page of the passport, giving rise to speculations that it may no longer serve as valid address proof.
"As the last page of the passport would not be printed now, the passport holders with ECR (Emigration Check Required) status would be issued a passport with orange passport jacket and those with non-ECR status would continue to get a blue passport", an MEA statement read.
In India, a passport is issued by the President of India for the goal of global travel and serves as a legal proof of Indian citizenship as per the Passports Act (1967).
The Indian Security Press, Nashik, will have to design the new passport booklets to the altered specifications finalised by the ministry. As of now, passports are issued in three colours - white for government officials or people who visit other countries for official work of the government, red coloured passports are issued for diplomats, and blue for everyone else. The MEA is considering keeping the last page of the passport, which now contains many details of the holder including the address, blank. The committee also looked upon the passport issues relating to the children with single parent and that of adopted children. In the case of ECR passport-holders, this status is provided on the same page. The ECR is at present stamped on the first two pages of the passport.
