If you are someone who often travels via air, you must have heard of DigiYatra - a digital initiative introduced by the Ministry of Civil Aviation in India on 1st Dec 2022. It aims to provide a seamless and paperless travel experience to air passengers. DigiYatra utilizes biometric technology, such as facial recognition, to enable passengers to verify their identity at various checkpoints, such as check-in, security, and boarding gates, without the need for physical documents. While this initiative aims to enhance passenger convenience, reduce waiting times, and improve overall efficiency in air travel, it also brings in a major security concern for sharing personal travel details.

Do you also worry while sharing your personal travel data with DigiYatra? Let us tell you that you should not be! Because your data is completely safe with DigiYatra!

What is Verismart Blockchain?

Gupta takes us back to the roots of Verismart, a journey that began over a decade ago. With a background in automobile tech and representing India in the autonomous vehicle challenge, he found his passion in solving complex problems. After successfully launching and selling his first and second ventures, Mr. Gupta's entrepreneurial spirit was fueled by a desire to address larger problem statements. Verismart was born from the vision of enabling secure collaboration among enterprises without compromising privacy.

In response to the question of why he chose entrepreneurship over a traditional corporate job, Mr. Gupta emphasizes the connection with a problem and the belief that he could solve it better than anyone else. He encourages aspiring entrepreneurs to focus on their passion, emphasizing that the journey is not about getting rich but about believing in and addressing a problem that matters.

Verismart: The Blockchain Powerhouse Behind Digi Yatra

As the conversation shifts towards Verismart and its role in Digi Yatra, Mr. Gupta explains the startup's focus on privacy-compliant data interoperability. Initially solving this problem for banks, telecoms, and e-commerce players, the opportunity with Digi Yatra arose through winning the Airport Authority of India challenge. Verismart's blockchain infrastructure became the backbone of Digi Yatra, providing a sovereign identity for travelers with data residing only on their mobile devices, ensuring security and privacy.

Addressing the prevalent concerns about data security, Mr. Gupta sheds light on Verismart's solution. By categorizing data into PII (Personally Identifiable Information) and non-PII, the platform ensures that only necessary and limited information is shared for service fulfillment. The use of blockchain automates data access management, allowing users to retain control over their data, shared only with consent and for a specified duration.

Insights from a Serial Entrepreneur: Three Key Learnings

Reflecting on his entrepreneurial journey, Mr. Gupta shares three crucial learnings. Perseverance takes center stage, emphasizing the importance of commitment to the problem being addressed. Discipline follows, with the significance of showing up on even the toughest days. Lastly, building a strong team emerges as a fundamental aspect, not limited to internal teams but extending to ecosystem partners, investors, and collaborators.

As Verismart continues to redefine data security norms in air travel, Mr. Saurabh Gupta stands as a testament to the power of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. With Digi Yatra paving the way for a new era of seamless travel experiences, the marriage of blockchain technology and air travel appears set to revolutionize the industry.
