The Machine printed
passports issued by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government
of India can enable speedy passage of passengers at airports
and other border control areas. This can be achieved by installting
passport readers at these border control locations.
If such readers are installed, then the border control officers
do not have to key in the passenger data from the machine printed
and machine readable travel documents - the data can be scanned
straight from the document by appropriate readers.
WESRA has written the software that is used with such readers installed
at Indian international airports. The readers are manufactured by
and they work with WESRA software.
