The Cabinet of Government of India has given the nod for the e-Visa Project to streamline and integrate visa, immigration and foreigners registration and tracking process to strengthen security at an investment of Rs. 1,011 crores under the National e-Governance Plan. It is a step in the right direction and deserves praise and support from all quarters.
Every foreigner must be identified by a e-Visa and all transactions must be routed through a Biometric e-Visa Card. No cash transactions must be permitted. This would enable easy tracking and terrorism can be minimized.
It is now up to the concerned authorities to take quick action in implementing a fool proof system of tracking foreigners for ensuring safety and security of the nation.
