The India till now had 3 passports -Blue as Regular one, White as official indian one and Maroon as diplomatic indian passport. The Indian Government has announced its decision back to introduce the orange passport for a majority section of the population. It is meant to identify a person that has not studied beyond class 10. Unlike the regular passport, the orange passport won’t have the last page which mentions the father’s name of the holder, permanent address and other critical details. People who are not educationally qualified fall under ECR (immigration check required) category. It means that every time a person in this category wants to fly abroad, he/she is required to clear the criteria laid down by the immigration officials.
