Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) will begin testing the facial recognition technology for flyers at the Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport from Friday.
"With this technology, passengers' entry would be automatically processed based on facial recognition system at all check points, including airport entry, entry into security checks, and aircraft boarding," the GMR-led Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) said on Thursday.
"As soon as the flight departs, data of the registered passengers will be deleted. There will be no storage of the biometric details by the airport," the DIAL clarified. The DIAL spokesperson said, "Participation in the trials is purely voluntary and at discretion of passengers. A suitable consent form will be signed by passengers. This trial will run for three months. Subsequent roll-out plans will be made."
