This is not the new look of the Indian Passport, it’s just a concept


A post is being shared on Facebook by many users claiming that the images posted represent the new look of the Indian passport. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: The New Smart Passport -Concept of the future is here. The All-in-One Identity Solution for every Indian Citizen very soon.

Fact: The images posted are just concept arts. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When images posted on Facebook are run through a Google Reverse Image search, a link to a ‘Medium’ article published two years back can be found in the search results. When looked at the article, it can found that the images were designed by a concept artist to showcase his skills and propose an alternative to the existing passport. In the article, a link to his blog can also be found, where the concept arts of Aadhaar can also be found.


Finally, it’s just a concept art; not the new look of the Indian Passport.
