Distribution of electronic passport (e-passport) has been started in Baglung. For the first time in the district, distribution of passports with biological details has started.

 The distribution was started by the district administration office by handing over an electronic passport to a youth on Sunday. Assistant Chief District Officer Ganesh Poudel said that the distribution of electronic passports has been started for the first time after the government replaced the Machine Readable Passport (MRP) with a passport with biological details.

 The district administration had started collecting forms with biological details for electronic passports in the district from February 11 onwards. Administrative Officer Suryalal Bishwakarma informed that the prepared passport was received in the district within 15 days after the passport form was integrated and sent.

 Earlier, it used to take at least one month to get a normal MRP passport. The e-passport is ready in 15 days. The administration office collects the biological details of the person inside the office. Administrative Officer Vishwakarma says that one can fill the form online for personal details.

 The government had stopped collecting MRP forms for the implementation of electronic passports from November 17. The same passport works till the expiry of MRP. The administration has been collecting 10 forms daily.
