No orange jacket passports, last page will also be retained

The Ministry of External affairs has decided retract its decision to issue passports with an orange jacket for ECR (emigration check required) passport holders and to remove the last page of the passport containing the names of father/legal guardian, mother, spouse, and address on Tuesday. This decision comes after many critics, including Congress President Rahul Gandhi, said that the decision will lead to discrimination.
