PASSPORT READER IS 13252(Part 1):2010*
A passport reader, normally referred to as a passport scanner, is frequently found in airports and places where passports are renewed. Its primary duty is to read and authenticate passports; it can complete this task significantly more quickly. To find errors between the scanned images and reference images of real identification documents, the images are given a thorough software analysis. The Indian government has instituted a compulsory registration programme that requires all passport readers to register with BIS.
